A service provider’s mobile network contains an intrinsic yet untapped asset - data. In an opt-in model, real-time and near-real-time subscriber information such as location, preferences, and usage patterns can be used for a better “your way” experience. One that is personalized and contextual.
This data in motion represents a way for service providers to monetize new services such as machine to machine (M2M) in the growing Internet of Everything (IoT).
The Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) predicts that by 2018, a total of 19 billion global network connections will be live. And as more and more physical objects and sensors become networked, over six billion M2M connections are expected to come online, with two billion of these being cellular M2M connections.
While the IoT represents opportunity for service providers, it also introduces new demands onto the mobile network. In fact, M2M requires a fundamental shift in how networks are architected, managed, and operated. Speed and agility are crucial. Services must be created in minutes instead of months. To achieve this technical and business agility, automation and orchestration of network resources become absolutely paramount.
A network based on Cisco Prime for Evolved Programmable Networks can help you manage the rapid growth in the IoT as well as the sustained exponential growth in mobile data. It can help you monetize this growth through new levels of agility as well as optimize current investments. This network includes several leading technologies.
The Cisco Elastic Services Platform (ESP) is a comprehensive, unified virtualization and orchestration software platform that creates, automates, and provisions services in real time. ESP spans compute, storage, and network functions to deliver desired business outcomes for applications running across multiple domains.
The Cisco ASR 5000 Series offers industry-proven elasticity, performance, and intelligence. Quantum Virtualized Packet Core is a compute and hypervisor-independent solution for scaling new mobile packet core services using the same software as the ASR 5000 Series.
Cisco Quantum is an optimization software platform consisting of network intelligence functions that gather, process, and facilitate programmability into networks.
