Cisco has announced its strategy to help communication service providers and web scale companies around the world connect, secure and automate their networks to deliver a stronger, more accessible internet to everyone, everywhere, regardless of geographic limitations.
“Cisco has spent the last five years researching and investing in this portfolio of innovation, focusing on how to help our customers deliver the best internet, while being able to grow revenue, reduce their costs and mitigate risk,” said Reem Asaad, Vice President, Cisco Middle East and Africa. “By helping our customers make the right decisions for their networks today, we are setting the world up for success, to connect more people, places and things than ever before. We can all look back on this point in time in the next ten years and celebrate how we rose to the challenge and did the right thing to take care of the internet.”
Changing the Economics of the Internet
Building next generation networks to grow and extend the internet to more areas has been a challenging process for network operators. Answering the call, Cisco designed its Converged SDN Transport, an innovative blueprint designed to help service providers converge multiple networks into a common, cost efficient and secure infrastructure with enormous scale.
Today, Cisco is helping to further simplify the constructs of the internet with its Routed Optical Networking solution aimed at collapsing IP and Optical networks. With Acacia’s pluggable coherent optics, advancements in Segment Routing and Ethernet VPN, and new Cisco Crosswork Cloud capabilities, operators can build lean, efficient, easy-to-operate networks capable of supporting the levels of traffic expected with 5G.
New Innovation Powering the Internet for the Future
Cisco has been working with leading communication service providers and web scale companies including Airtel, Altibox, Eolo, Rakuten Mobile, SFR, Swisscom, Telenor, Telia Carrier, Telstra, Websprix and more to design the building blocks for the ‘Internet for the Future’, delivering greater efficiency, agility and savings gains than ever before.
