Image 1Imagine a health care institution with a large hospital campus and satellite clinics. Technology plays a critical role to help healthcare professional be productive and provide a higher quality of patient care. In addition, an agile network architecture provide business continuity and rapid resolution to any infrastructure issues. In this scenario, this Healthcare Institution is evolving their network to support a high performance, intelligent, application aware network. Let’s start at a mid-size clinic supporting 50 doctors and 150 staff. The First we have a doctor making rounds. The indoor network location based services tracks the doctor on her tablet, and can see which patient she is meeting. Instantly, she can get background on the patient, including family history, medical allergies, etc. In addition, she can see every person who has cared for the patient and what treatment that has been provided.
The doctor meets with a patient who has sever knee injuries. Though her tablet, she can see quickly pull up large x-ray files. The doctor can see some treatment options, including surgery and physical therapy. The doctor can also collaborate with a specialist to determine the best treatment for the patient. The ISR 4451-X with native WAAS solution is giving a true life-like HD experience by optimizing the voice/video traffic. In addition, The ISR4451-X offers an ideal platform for all the satellite clinics to standardize on, with the headroom to grow and add more performance or new services, without any service degradation or disruption. With probeless visibility and control, they have a full network view down to the application, and IT can validate the quality of experience across the clinic sites. If any issues are raised, they can quickly troubleshoot, and get at the root cause.
Overall positioning: Based on Cisco Open Network Environment (Cisco ONE), the ONE Enterprise Network Architecture enables enterprises to program networks to optimize network resources and increase network agility allowing for superior service innovation, accelerated time-to-market, investment protection and a low operational risk. It is a transformative strategy that brings unprecedented openness and programmability to enterprise wide networks (not just data-centers) to make best use of existing network resources (brownfield deployments) while transforming them to more agile, high-performance, application-centric networks.The ONE Enterprise Network Architecture goes beyond SDN in providing open APIs and programmability which provide deep access to network resources across the wider enterprise network. Combined with other open and standard APIs both southbound towards the network elements and northbound to the applications, it enables a rich ecosystem of third party applications. Let’s look at how the layer operate together, starting from the bottom:Network Element layer: this layer provides the industry’s richest set of devices across wired and wireless networks with service-rich IOS and open APIs. The open APIs are both industry standard (OpenFlow) as well as onePK APIs providing rich set of network services such as in-door location, application visibility and control, Medianet and more. It also supports CLI API, which allows both Greenfield and Brownfield deployments to take advantage of new applications and services. 80% of Cisco’s network devices deployed today will benefit from this architecture and the control services on top through the existing APIs.Control Layer:the control layer provisions network services consistently to all the network devices, instead of implementing them device by device. It creates an abstraction for the wider enterprise network thereby improving enterprise agility and accelerating service deployment. This approach creates a multi-layer architecture that optimally provisions services, such as QoS and PfR, for greatest agility and performance. Some services are already available at the device layer enabling high performance application experience and operational agility, while other are being centralized in a control layer. In a world where customer expectations are on the rise and delivering the expected customer experience is a top business priority, designing a network architecture that optimizes agility, efficiency and performance is critical. This design is also ensuring wired-wireless services consistency. It will also provide service consistency for selected relevant services across the Data Center and the network.Network Applications Layer– either developed by Cisco, third parties or our customers, the open APIs allow these applications to be designed with the network in mind to optimize application performance, innovation and user experience. The Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE),Cisco Prime management solutions and Cloud Connector services are great examples of the use of open APIs in creating consistent policy and management across the entire Cisco network – wired and wireless and enabling enterprises to rapidly deploy cloud services.
This use case we outline how the Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture can improve patient productivity and deliver a high quality of care as described be in the hospital vignette. The vignette showed how the network played a critical role in providing context-aware timely information to push relevant patient records to a doctor. This includes the patient medical history, and recent lab results, x-rays.Network Element Layer: Detects doctor mobile devices (tablet, phone) as she enter the room; the applications know patient room assignments and the schedule and through the wireless AP, it can track the doctor location throughout the hospital. Depending on organizational policy the user can be automatically connected through a recognized device or through a secure log in, which is most likely the case for a hospital. The network element layer can push network state information to the controller (app latency, bandwidth congestion, etc.), which can be relayed to 3rd party apps.Control Layer: Uses the location analytics in the Cisco Mobility Services Engine to calculate location, dwell time and other information regarding the end devices. This location-based analytics is sent to the Cisco Analytics reporting function and the third party healthcare application(via northbound API) within the network application layer. -- At this point the analytics engine understands where the doctor is and how long they spend time in certain locations. The control layer also receives analytics on network state (traffic congestion, apps types in use), and can traffic steer and adjust bandwidth to ensure large files like the xray can be downloaded quickly, and that telemedicine interaction has adequate bandwidth. Network Application Layer: The Cisco analytics function provide on-premise doctor location as well as other key resources in the hospital the doctor may need to access (e.g., equipment, machines, etc. through sensor that can be detected). As soon as the doctor opens the xray or initiates the telemedicine session, the application can leverage the northbound API to notify the controller that QoS policies and bandwidth reallocation is needed for a high quality experience.In this scenario, we are showing where the network can take our customers in the future. We leverage our ONE framework to go well beyond SDN in the enterprise campus and branch. This will be a journey, and you’ll continue to see Cisco make this vision a reality step by step. Today’s announcements is part of step one – where we are building innovative service rich routing and switching platforms that are one-PK ready. Our routers will support one-PK in July and our Switches are targeted for next calendar year and we are in trials already. We continue to partner with the ONE controller efforts and our Open Daylight initiative to build out resources for the controller layer.
Yes – Hardware can play a crucial role on the ability for a business to innovate, grow and compete.The ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture goes beyond SDN to create a multi-tier network architecture that enables Innovation, Investment Protection and Simplicity, with the Lowest Operational Risk.Innovation – enabled by a set of open APIs that are both industry standard (OpenFlow) and extend to support a rich set of network services with onePK, such as indoor location services, AVC and Medianet that enable greater innovation through increased network awareness. These applications accelerate deployment of business and network services, allowing enterprises to respond quickly to new business opportunities with faster time to market. Investment Protection – support both Brownfield and Greenfield deployments through existing and new APIs such as CLI. This allows enterprises to generate further value out of their existing networks by enabling open APIs in their current network element layer devices and realizing new business opportunities. It can also extend the new infrastructure to support new needs as they arise with network programmability built into ASIC and devices. It is also first in the industry to support OpenFlow 1.3Simplicity/Lowest Operational risk - looking at the network as a unit improves enterprise agility by accelerating advanced network services deployments, supporting wired-wireless service consistently, and providing IoS reliability and feature-richness. This approach allows organizations to break the barriers to cloud and BYOD deployments, by developing applications once and deploying them everywhere and on every device – wired or wireless, cloud or in the branch. The whole network becomes more intelligent and scalable. It is no longer about the platform; it is about the applications that run on them.Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture for Business TransformationInnovation: Open APIs, Location-based Services,Application PerformanceInvestment Protection: Platform Longevity,Programmability,Brownfield and GreenfieldSimplicity: Ease of Operations,Wired Wireless Consistency,Application Visibility and Control
