Cisco announced it is bringing together new predictive technologies with its portfolio of observability, visibility and intelligence technologies to improve reliability and performance across all operational scenarios.
Cisco’s predictive analytics engine will help IT teams prevent issues and elevate the user experience. Cisco has tuned and tested predictive models with customers across a variety of industry segments, incorporating advanced analytics and machine learning techniques to enable greater precision and ease of use.
Cisco predictive networks work by gathering data from a myriad of telemetry sources. Once integrated, it learns the patterns using a variety of models and begins to predict user experience issues, providing problem solving options. Customers can decide how far and wide they want to connect the engine throughout the network, giving them flexible options to expand as they need.
Chuck Robbins, Chair and CEO, Cisco, said: “Our research for predictive networks has been tested and developed with customers, and early adopters are seeing major benefits saving them time and money. The industry has been waiting for secure, proactive networking and only Cisco can do it right.”
IT teams are struggling to be proactive. Managing cybersecurity threats, hybrid work, hybrid cloud and more, the stakes are high to ensure the best networked experiences for employees and customers. 24/7 uptime means everything. Unplanned downtime and outages can interrupt employee productivity, customer service and revenue. 45 percent of IT leaders surveyed cited responding to disruptions as the top network challenge for 20211.
Beyond outages, the experience people get from their network connections has become business critical. People and businesses use and rely on applications for just about everything, and often an app is the critical first impression for customers.
57 percent of people say brands have one shot to impress them and that if their digital service does not perform, they won’t use them again2. To deliver on the full promise of digital business, the industry needs a way to better predict network issues, proactively avoid issues, and ensure the best possible experience.
