Network value according to Cisco.
Businesses are increasingly using technology and, in particular, networks to grow their business, improve efficiency and competitiveness. Data is one of an organization's most important strategic assets, and this data is increasingly distributed across organizations and ecosystems, within the organization, at the network edge, and in the cloud. Cisco believes that as the number of new devices connected to the Internet grows, the network will play an even more important role, allowing companies to aggregate, automate, and extract actionable information from this highly distributed data that requires increased levels of security and speed. And this is forcing companies to implement completely new IT architectures and organizational structures and, in particular, to look for network deployment solutions that provide greater flexibility, performance, security, and other enhanced networking capabilities.
