Launched in the summer of 2017, the IBN plan to build an intuitive network has a variety of components that include DNA Center, which is the provisioning dashboard for managing the campus and branch networks.

The plan also includes SD-Access, which uses an identity-centric approach to manage users and devices coming onto and operating in the network; Network Data Platform (NDP) and Assurance, which will categorize network traffic data and provide predictive analytics; and Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA), which uses traffic metadata to identify threats.
