(Original Workshop - Wednesday January 16, 2013)
Cisco Unified Access is a network platform with one policy, one management, and one network, enabling enterprise campus networks and the Internet of things in our connected world. One of the key components of this architecture is the network distribution or backbone layer on Catalyst 6500E with Supervisor 2T, which provides capabilities that address the key trends today: mobility, video collaboration, and cloud computing.
SGT/SGACL is a secure, comprehensive, and easy way to tackle device proliferation (bring your own device, or BYOD), while delivering the appropriate user experience.
Almost all of the tablets, smartphones, and other new types of devices are coming on the network with IPv6 turned on by default. Locator ID/Separation Protocol (LISP) enables easier, faster, more transparent communication between v4 and v6 devices and resources across the enterprise campus.
Next Generation Virtual Switching System (VSS Quad-Sup SSO) high availability capability on Catalyst 6500E delivers network resiliency to meet the intensive needs of delay/jitter sensitive video traffic across campus backbones, while enabling 100 percent uplink forwarding with simplified single point of management.
In this workshop, Cisco experts will explain key technology capabilities of the Catalyst 6500E and Supervisor 2T that will enable the campus backbone for the next decade.
