Italtel announced its Netwrapper application has been included in the official Cisco GPL catalogue.
Netwrapper is the outcome of the strong cooperation between Italtel and Cisco around the innovation that Cisco is bringing in the enterprise networks. In particular, Italtel’s application is built on top of Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA) leveraging automation concepts enabled by the Enterprise SDN Controller Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure Controller Enterprise module (Cisco APIC-EM).
Netwrapper provides IT managers with a tool to improve operational efficiency, enabling increased employee productivity and better return on investment. Interacting with both the network and Unified Collaboration & Communication (UC&C) services, Netwrapper understands and adapts to real-time bandwidth availability and voice and video service requirements, driving changes in service priorities and dynamically modifying call management set-ups if required.
From an IT manager’s perspective, this delivers a better understanding of network infrastructure status and improved usage of UC&C services to ensure delivery of the best possible customer experience.
Netwrapper also delivers benefits to companies adopting smart working, allowing network resources to be distributed dynamically according to the number of employees present at the company premises on a given day.
For system integrators selling the solution, Netwrapper has innovative use cases that illustrate the positive effects of an SDN-based approach. For service providers managing infrastructure on behalf of enterprise customers, Netwrapper provides a tool for improving not only operational efficiency, but also for delivering services at assured quality that meets real customers’ needs.
In general, Netwrapper enables a smooth adoption of Cisco DNA, opening the door to further use cases where automation and artificial intelligence concepts can bring significant results.
