Intent based networking (IBNS) is made up of three main elements: intent I context I intuition
Intent-based networking allows IT to move from tedious traditional processes to automating intent, making it possible to manage millions of devices in minutes.
Interpreting data in context enables the network to provide new insights based on who, what, when, where, and how. The intuitive network interprets all of this, resulting in enhanced security,more customised experiences and faster operations.
Intent-based networking provides machine-learning at scale. Cisco DNA uses the vast amount of data that flows thought its networks around the globe to provide actionable, predictive insights that significantly benefit its customers.
