A new architectural approach for service provider networks has emerged to profitably manage the Internet of Everything. This architecture is the Cisco Open Network Environment (ONE); an architecture that converges hardware and virtual software technologies. Cisco ONE consists of three layers: the Evolved Programmable Network (EPN), Evolved Services Platform (ESP), and applications and services. The foundation of Cisco ONE is the Evolved Programmable Network (EPN),

For the past decade, next-generation networks have been built out to handle the massive demand for bandwidth and connectivity. Underpinned by next-generation networks and the evolution of network technologies, the EPN combines networking, compute, and storage capabilities to form a more agile, more simple, and more profitable infrastructure.

What Is an Evolved Programmable Network?

The Evolved Programmable Network (EPN) is the foundation of the Cisco Open Network Environment (ONE) architecture. The EPN is the infrastructure layer consisting of physical and virtual devices working together to form an end-to-end unified fabric for a programmable network.

The EPN is designed to converge edge, core, and data center functions using our industry-leading portfolio of technologies. It helps enable new possibilities for you to create new revenue models, simplify operations, and deliver new experiences on the Internet of Everything.
