Evolved Programmable Network Products

Our Evolved Programmable Network is the basis for innovative capabilities across the cloud to the core, the edge, and the customer premises. As the network infrastructure layer, the Evolved Programmable Network consists of physical and virtual devices working together to form an end-to-end unified fabric.

The Evolved Programmable Network is comprised of the following building blocks.

Network Infrastructure

The Evolved Programmable Network infrastructure consists of physical and virtual devices converging fixed and mobile access throughout the networking edge, core, and transport.
