Networks are getting more complex and harder to manage. A decade ago, you simply had an employee connecting over the corporate LAN with a corporate-controlled PC. One type of user connecting to one network using one type of device. Users would typically access corporate-owned applications and resources.

Today, employees, partners, customers, and guests all have different levels of access. Many of them use their own laptops, tablets, and smartphones and, increasingly, their own applications on the enterprise network. On top of that, a growing number of network users are connected devices such as cameras, printers, phones, energy meters, medical devices, industrial machine sensors, and vehicles. Ten billion devices already connect to the world’s networks, and the Cisco® Visual Networking Index projects that number will double by 2018.
