Delivering real networking innovation

Renowned for network innovation, Cisco has introduced a new era of networking: the Digital Network Architecture.

Our Cisco networks are built to be more autonomous, meaning they are simpler and easier to operate, require less intervention and are more responsive and secure. This means that your people can be more productive no matter when or where they are working.

Simply put, the new network enables a more intuitive way to work.

Deep visibility and understanding of traffic

  • Informed by context, when the network sees something once it correlates it with other data sources at a high scale – so if an unknown file enters your network, it will quarantine the data, check for malicious content and release or sandbox it as required. This means you can rest easier at night knowing your data and infrastructure are secure
  • The network sees invisible threats by studying traffic patterns and correlating them with Cisco’s behavioural analysis – taken from delivering 80% of the world’s Internet traffic – so you can be notified or block suspicious patterns of traffic, even if they are encrypted on-premise or in the cloud.


A new Network Intuitive that delivers

  • Visibility of all threats, even those in encrypted traffic. The new network stops 20 million threats a day and learns from every one of them
  • Continual updates on new evolving threats, meaning you can stop potential threads before they impact your business.

Less burden on your IT team

  • The network uses machine learning to mine untapped data your business can use as intelligence – meaning you can make better, more informed business decisions.
    • How much ‘shadow IT’ is being used, and whether it presents a risk to the business
    • Understanding application performance issues, and their impact on productivity
    • Measuring network performance so it can be improved.
  • Save your team’s time by analysing the data for you so you have actionable insight, and not just reams of raw data
  • The new network behaves as a system, automating mundane tasks such as implementing security, access and quality of service policies across the entire network, saving your team time and costly errors.

A holistic approach

Maintel’s products and services extend from the cloud and data centre to the WAN, LAN and WiFi – our breadth and depth of capability is what sets us apart.

Unlike some providers who focus on ‘point’ solutions that address a single business problem, we focus on the overall business outcome, to help our customers work and communicate better, faster and gain a competitive advantage.
