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.
Network architectures need to support all forms of network access, from fixed-line to 4G to Wi-Fi to cable. Additionally, 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, automation, 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
- End-to-end network infrastructure
- Enhanced hierarchical quality of service (QoS)
- Intuitive instrumentation and management
- Power efficiency
