Service providers face the twin challenges of having to rapidly deploy new data center-based services while controlling operational and capital costs along with maximizing the return on existing server, storage, and network infrastructure investments.


Cisco enables service providers with the most complete, scalable, and easily provisioned data center solutions. These solutions are designed to minimize time to revenue, expand your addressable customer base, and support demanding customer service-level agreements (SLAs).


Cisco Validated Design Program

The Cisco Validated Design Program features validated architecture-level and solution-level designs that meet stringent quality criteria for next-generation data center networks, including the demands of building a service provider data center. This Cisco initiative is known as the service provider (SP) Service Delivery Center.
