Combine programmability with physical hardware to create carrier class virtual services and functions. With Cisco’s Carrier Ethernet and Edge routing portfolio providers can profitably scale their network services, capabilities, and reach.
Videos. Blogs. Mobile apps. Cloud services. By 2015, annual global IP traffic will reach nearly a zettabyte.
Even today you need to support all forms of network access, from fixed-line to 4G to Wi-Fi to cable. Plus, trends like self-publishing require upload speeds to match download speeds.
Is your network ready?
Assumptions about traffic patterns and capacity that have served you well in managing your edge networks are no longer relevant. To capture new market opportunities, you need a new level of virtualization, programmability, intelligence, and scalability.
As an industry leader in Carrier Ethernet and IP/MPLS networks, Cisco offers a comprehensive portfolio of Carrier Ethernet and Edge Network solutions that delivers:
- Carrier-class reliability, capacity, and scalability
- Nonstop video and mobile experiences
- Enhanced hierarchical quality of service (QoS) and Cisco IOS XR Software
- Intuitive instrumentation and management
- Optimized infrastructure power efficiency
