Cisco Spaces (formerly Cisco DNA Spaces)

Cisco released a brand new technology package that leverages existing wireless and wired core systems to help businesses better manage their physical environment and return to the office safer and more secure.

They support remote offices and single branches (IDC says over 52% of workers will remain remote or hybrid after COVID-19), but can return to transformed business spaces.

Although smart building technologies are still used to save energy, the data they generate can also support integrated and interconnected networks of information operation technologies. It can be used to return employees to the office in an environment that is safe from social distancing. Cisco is adding support for its geolocation software, DNA Spaces, to support the Catalyst 9000 family of branch and campus switches.

Due to the widespread use and performance of Cat 9000 switches and access points, Cisco offers cloud-delivered services that can interpret and normalize telemetry from various endpoints in the smart building ecosystem, send information to DNA Spaces, and easily integrate customers. This way, companies can control thousands of different devices.

This licensed solution provides a single point of access for all location technology and intelligence through a single dashboard interface. Cisco DNA Spaces offers the industry’s most scalable location-based services platform, while being compatible with existing Cisco Webex, Cisco Catalyst, and Cisco Meraki infrastructure, as well as select Cisco Collaboration endpoints and support for a broad variety of implementation options.
