Unified Access allows wired and wireless technologies to work together, as a single, robust network
Users experience the same high-quality performance whether they are using Wi-Fi, or are connected using an Ethernet cable. They can access the same apps as they switch from their desktops, to their smartphones, to their tablets.
Network management in a unified environment is singular: That means a single registration process, a single set of policies, and a single-pane for visibility and control of the entire network.
A unified network policy for both wired and wireless users creates standardization of the policies across the network.
