What Medianet Means
A medianet is an end-to-end IP architecture that helps to enable pervasive media experiences. The medianet architecture includes a smarter network, smarter endpoints, cloud services, and shared media services. As a result, you can deliver a more visual, social, personal, and interactive experience to end users – cost-effectively.
Medianet can transform everyday business processes. Imagine a patient at home meeting with a physician in another city and sharing medical images, or a security employee in a parking lot viewing campus surveillance feeds on a smartphone. A medianet architecture helps IT organizations deliver the best possible user experience, with exceptional efficiency, across a range of use cases.
A Cisco Medianet architecture facilitates automation and delivers visibility for greater scale and policy management across the network to endpoints anywhere.
For businesses of all sizes, Cisco offers a variety of endpoints that work with our media transformation products and core networking technologies. These endpoints can be centrally managed, easily and quickly, for smooth administrative and end-user experiences. The benefits include greater efficiency with faster troubleshooting and cost savings.
For service providers, Cisco offers a single end-to-end architecture with exceptional scalability and efficiency. You can deliver hosted enterprise video deployments -- regardless of their complexity -- as a service, or quickly release superior services to set yourself apart from the competition.
Cisco Services or a Cisco partner can help you begin to build a medianet. Get started with a Cisco Medianet Readiness Assessment to better understand your current capabilities and what you need to complete your architecture. You might already have existing Cisco Medianet-enabled endpoints and network technologies.
