Cisco Systems has come up with a technology that can predict issues on enterprise networks before they happen to help prevent problems and increase reliability.
From various sources within a company's network the predictive software engine will gather data, learn the patterns and will help engineers find hardware issues, bandwidth spikes and app configuration changes before they cause difficulties.
A dedicated team of about 30 people have been working on this over the last two years," Cisco Chief Executive Officer Chuck Robbins told news source. "We will apply this technology to a broad range of products and services over the next few years."
With around 15 customers which includes Phillips 66 and Schneider Electric, Cisco has tested the technology.
Traditional technologies can detect issues and react only when they happen, but if networks can predict issues and make changes proactively, the user will have a vastly better experience, Robbins said.
The company plans to announce initial integrations and offers of the product at its annual networking conference in June.
