Cisco ONE Software suites provide a cost-effective and flexible way for you to acquire software for your data center, WAN, switching, and wireless needs.
The suites deliver the capabilities needed to address essential customer use cases:
- Connect branch and campus environments with scalable wired and wireless access
- Create a highly secure data center network that works with public, private, and hybrid clouds
- Deliver voice and video collaboration throughout your network
The suites make it easier and simpler to buy, manage, and upgrade the infrastructure software that enables these use cases.
- When you buy: Instead of choosing from hundreds of separately priced software features, you purchase a single Cisco ONE Software product. Instead of a single perpetual license tied to the lifetime of your hardware, you get flexibility with a choice of licensing options.
- When you use: Your Cisco ONE Software investment can grow in value through ongoing innovations, updates, and upgrades. And soon with Cisco ONE Software, you’ll have the freedom to deploy your licenses on both physical and virtual machines.
- When you refresh: You benefit from lower costs and lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Cisco ONE Software licenses are not tied to specific hardware, so they are portable to the next generation of applicable devices.
