Network infrastructure as a service as the old traditional layered network with Cleary defined boundaries between, LAN, SD-WAN, Wifi, Access Control and Visibility is blending into something that resembles more of a modern data center.
With that in mind, the design of any new or refreshed network takes on a different discussion. The focus shifts from ports and speeds to user mobility, site to site consistency, end to end security tracking the ability for users to auto-register their own devices onto the network. All the while, ensuring your security risk remains intact.

To avoid this, we map out the scenarios in a “wargames” format and run them through a test environment to document and remediate. Having increased confidence in the expected outcome, the rollout of the new platform(s) can be swift and non-disruptive. Documenting the rollout and using a repeatable process ensures consistency from site to site. The extensive native monitoring capabilities of the new campus fabric confirms the success and highlight any anomalies not accounted for. We can then build custom dashboards and alerts for faster remediation times. An extensive test plan is separately carried out to ensure that Network Access Control is universal in its application and does not impact worker mobility.
