A few weeks back, I attended Cisco Live 2017. The headline announcement for the week was the Catalyst 9k series and DNA Center making up Cisco's SD-Access solution. This represents a major shift in direction for Cisco’s networking business. And while it looks very exciting, I am approaching DNAC and the 9k with some skepticism.
Why skepticism? Because I’m a little nervous about the complexity of technology that this solution brings to bear. Most of the components have been available in the Cisco portfolio for a while, but few have seen tremendous adoption.
