Cisco Prime Infrastructure Operations Center
Cisco Prime Infrastructure provides a single integrated solution for the complete lifecycle management of Cisco routers, switches, and wireless devices.

With Cisco PI, IT organizations can easily consolidate management tools and converge workflows. It can manage global enterprise networks with thousands of network devices and hundreds of thousands of access devices.

Cisco Topology View

Topology View is a network visualization and management framework part of the Cisco Prime Infrastructure. The framework aims to provide an interactive and convenient visualization of networks consisting of thousands of devices.

Heterogeneous Cloud Orchestration

This is a component of Spirent iTest, an API layer to uniformly interact with different IaaS providers (OpenStack, AWS, Azure, vCenter, and more) and create integration tests based on a unified model.

Spirent iTest

iTest is an integrated test-authoring-and-execution solution built for testers, developers, and automation teams. It provides QA organizations with a unified approach for rapidly developing, automating, and maintaining test cases.

Network Service Mesh
A Network Service Mesh is an extension of the service mesh concept common in applications to network services. It is part of an attempt to reimagine NFV in a cloud-native way. Network Service Mesh is the hybrid/multi-cloud IP service mesh enabling:
• L3 zero trust
• Per workload granularity
• Per network service connectivity/security/observability
• No changes to Kubernetes
• Works with your existing CNI
• No changes to your workloads

Benetech JusticeAI

JusticeAI is an open source platform and suite of tools that strategically apply machine learning, computer vision, and metadata analysis to sort, identify, and analyze digital media. The software processes digital media libraries, creating an index of unique “fingerprints” (a signature of 300-500 characters) that represent the content of each piece of media but cannot be reverse-engineered to reproduce the original file. These fingerprints can then be used to perform a number of functions, including video deduplication, detecting similar or related videos, basic object recognition, searching for similar frames, semantic searching by natural-language description, etc. The platform provides user-friendly visualizations so users can interact with and understand the results of the media processing.
