So what are the features of Cisco's software-defined network?
Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)
Cisco ACI automates your customer's IT tasks and accelerates data centre application deployments. Delivering the benefits of agility, scalability and flexibility, ACI uses a business-relevant SDN policy model that encompasses networks, servers, storage and services. Reducing complexity and automating provisioning, ACI makes networking simple.
Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC-EN)
A central part of Cisco Digital Network Architecture, APIC-EN delivers software-defined networking to the enterprise branch and WAN. Policy-based automation delivers services to the network where and when your customer's need them, helping to boost productivity and prioritise important business issues.
