A renewed focus on business resilience 

Download the 2021 Cisco Global Networking Trends Report

As data rates increase, the IoT becomes more mainstream. As a result, threats to network security grow and businesses need a network that is ready for anything.

Today’s users require an unplugged and uninterrupted experience. In order to keep up with demand networks need to be wireless first, cloud-driven, data-optimised, and always secure.

Your network should enable a simplified operational model with one management, one common OS, pervasive security, and common policy across wired and wireless.

mcrIT’s networking solutions help IT to automate, secure, and scale network connectivity to thousands of users and devices.  With deep AI analytics, you can troubleshoot faster and predict issues before they happen.  We can help you to support your business with a network that is ready for the digital age.

What is intent-based networking (IBN)?

As users, devices, and distributed applications have grown in number, the networking environment has become exponentially more complex. IBN transforms a hardware-centric, manual network into a controller-led network that captures business intent and translates it into policies that can be automated and applied consistently across the network. The goal is for the network to continuously monitor and adjust network performance to help assure desired business outcomes.

How does it work? 

IBN builds on software-defined networking (SDN), by using a network controller that acts as a central control point for network activity. Such controllers are crucial for network abstraction that lets IT treat the network as an integrated whole. Controller-led networks in all domains (including access, WAN, datacentre, and cloud) collaborate and extend their benefits throughout the enterprise and help make digital transformation a reality.

The closed-loop system of IBN operates with the following functional building blocks to deliver intent, or support for, the business or IT outcomes that your organisation needs.

  • Translation: The capture and translation of intent into policies the network can act on.
  • Activation: Installation of these policies across the physical and virtual network infrastructure, using networkwide automation.
  • Assurance: Use of analytics and machine learning to continuously monitor the network to verify that the desired intent has been applied and the business outcomes are being achieved.
