The following article explains how to integrate one or multiple Cisco Catalysts with Basking.io using SNMP. This integration allows you to use your existing LAN network with Basking.io in order to provide occupancy analytics for your offices

Please note that we also support the Netconf and YANG protocols using another LAN connector.


The following diagram explains the general architecture of the integration between Cisco and Basking:
