Cisco Predictive Networks Debuts
May 5, 2022
the last 30 years, Cisco has been powering the internet, keeping the
world connected to what matters most. Networks have evolved to
detect and react to issues to maintain performance and reliability.
The next logical step is for networks to predict problems before
they happen, something that has been difficult until now.
Today, Cisco is offering a look behind the curtain at how it is
defining the future of connectivity with groundbreaking technology
designed to help IT teams learn, predict and plan, to avoid costly
Cisco Predictive Networks
Cisco is bringing together new predictive technologies with its
broad portfolio of observability, visibility and intelligence
technologies to improve reliability and performance across all
operational scenarios. For the past two years, Cisco has been
working on a first-of-its-kind predictive analytics engine that 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
How It Works
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.
“The future of connectivity will rely on self-healing networks that
can learn, predict and plan,” said Chuck Robbins, Chair and CEO,
Cisco. “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.”
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%
of IT leaders surveyed cited responding to disruptions as the top
network challenge for 2021.
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% of people say
brands have one shot to impress them and that if their digital
service does not perform, they won’t use them again . 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.
