Cisco SVP Scott Harrell serves up details about the company's intent-based networking. When Cisco announced its intent-based networking (IBN) strategy this summer, CEO Chuck Robbins called it the company’s biggest announcement in years. IBN architectures use a combination of software and hardware to control network infrastructure. It allows users to express their desired state of the network – infrastructure configurations, security polices, etc. – and IBN automatically implements and maintains that state.
