I am a solution architect. I design solutions using Cisco DNA Center. We use Cisco DNA Center to provide network management.

We are using Cisco DNA Center for four key major areas. The first area we use it for is for setting the policy for multiple devices and from one single point of configuration. The second use is for provisioning because we will have a lot of switches and access points. The provisioning has been very helpful for us. The third use is the assurance module and the fourth use is automation. We have not started the automation phase. We used it for policy, provision, design, and assurance.

The solution is mainly used for setting up SPN or intent-based networking for the customers.

We use this solution for network assurance and automation, network segmentation with ISE integration, and LAN automation deploying new devices out into the switching estate. This was for a TSA project that we were doing for a client.

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our customers. Our clients use this solution to manage their network, including their access points.

We are an educational environment that is similar to a university, but we only teach management and leadership. We have a variety of visitors every day, more than 2,000 of them, and they are unknown to us. This makes it very difficult to centrally manage using a traditional network. We are currently in the second round of the implementation phase for this solution. We have two buildings with the solution implemented now, and we are working on other buildings. We are on the same campus but we are doing the work in four phases. Now that two are complete, we have two more that we are about to finish. Everything is secure in our environment, so we are using the overlay of the DNA Center to separate the visitors and the employees and the trainers. We are using a multi-segmented network, so DNA was a very good solution for us to deal with this type of environment.

My experience with Cisco DNA Center is with selling it and receiving feedback from my customers. I have not personally done any configuration or management with it. I have worked with the demo and also presented it to customers. My clients use this solution to give them more visibility into their network, and the management mode helps with to troubleshoot and fix problems.

Automating customers' campus networks, redesigning their networks and giving much more visibility on traffic flows.
