The French government awarded Groupe La Poste, the French Postal Service, with an award in 2017 for reinventing their business after experiencing a severe decline in mail volume. A key part of La Poste’s turnaround happened when they migrated to Cisco’s Software-Defined Networking solution, Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).
