Cisco has released new developer capabilities across its intent-based networking platform.

These advancements underscore Cisco's continued progress in delivering an open, programmable platform that spans the entire network, from campus to data centre, branch to edge. By providing an open network, Cisco is empowering 500,000 developers, 60,000 partners and three million network engineers to innovate upon the platform.

Intent-based networking represents a fundamental shift in the way networks are built and managed. Moving away from the manual, time-intensive methods by which networks are traditionally managed, these modern networks capture business intent and translate it into network policies. These policies are then automatically activated across the entire infrastructure, with the assurance that the business intent was delivered as planned.

"Intent-based networking represents the next generation of open, IP-based systems that we've seen can change the actual fabric of society," said David Goeckeler, executive vice president and general manager, Cisco Networking and Security Business.

Goeckeler added that Cisco is building an open architecture that will power an ecosystem to accelerate intent-based networking innovation. "Already, our customers and partners are creating value from their networks in ways they thought weren't possible as recently as one year ago," he said.
