Cisco’s New SD-WAN Family – Catalyst 8000 Edge

The newly released Catalyst 8000 line is designed for SD-WAN, multi-cloud, security, and analytics. Perfect for managing traffic that is increasingly distributed across the cloud.

Catalyst 8000 products leverage the SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) architecture. They also include Cisco Umbrella integration — a single, cloud-native service for controlling security and integrating networking functions across an entire fabric of networking devices. Powerful security options are also built into the Catalyst 8000 line, for customers requiring flexiblity with enforcing hybrid security (on-premise and cloud). These powerful edge devices are open and programmable, with a fully developed API library that will enable extensive automation.

At the top-end, the Catalyst 8500 is ideal for data center, co-location, and aggregation sites. It features an SD-WAN industry first: integrated 40G and 100G Ethernet ports.

Catalyst 8300 Series are made to handle edge connectivity at branch sites, with vastly improved performance above Cisco’s ISR 4400 routers. This platform makes it possible to create an entirely software-defined branch, including connectivity, edge compute, and storage. Compute and switching capabilities can be added via Cisco’s UCS-E Series blades and UADP-powered Switch modules.
