Between building a 5G network and unlocking its promise, there’s a bridge.

Profitable 5G networks

5G is here. But how you deploy it will determine if it is profitable or just another radio upgrade. The secret is unleashing an open, hyper-programmable architecture that slims down your multivendor, multidomain network into a sleek, agile, unified system to enable premium services to flow easily to business customers and subscribers.
 

Monetizing 5G services
 

Enhance connected experiences and revenue potential through cloud-based delivery of premium services.

Gain cloud-provider agility, flexibility, and control along with high-speed ubiquitous access to open up revenue opportunities now.

Simplified open access
 

Reduce costs and slash time to operation using seamless connectivity across open access technologies.

Unified services enablement

Deploy an automated, highly flexible and ultrareliable services platform that supports massive scalability and enhanced 5G services now.

Building blocks of 5G profitability

Create new revenue through premium self-services

Empower new business with on-demand access of premium network services. The Cisco Unified Domain Center establishes a clear path for monetizing 5G.

It breaks down the barriers across enterprise, cloud, and connectivity service provider (CSP) networks. Business customers can seamlessly manage policies, security, and services, which increases speed to market and customer satisfaction.

Monetizing improved subscriber experiences through the cloud

Expand your business reach and agility with a full featured cloud native 5G/4G packet core that migrates control to the cloud.

Cisco Ultra Cloud Core with CUPS is the industry-leading full-featured (in-line services) packet core platform that seamlessly and securely unifies 3G/4G/5G/IoT/WiFi connected services.

The agility, reach, and responsiveness of Cisco Ultra Cloud Core empowers network slicing, which can improve subscriber experiences, expand revenue opportunities, and optimize CapEx.

Increase speed to revenue through multi-vendor orchestration

Cisco NSO uses open API orchestration across your entire network to deliver high-quality services quickly and easily.

Now, with the introduction of NSO 5, you can accelerate revenue-generating services with automated, self-service, and on-demand provisioning in even the largest multi-vendor networks with more than 100,000 devices and beyond.

Reduce OpEx with automation

Customer demands are complicated, but closed-loop automation from Cisco simplifies and speeds both awareness and action.

  • Cisco Crosswork SON (Self Organizing Network) uses machine learning to react faster to network issues, predicting potential issues based on gathered (and ingested) data.
  • Cisco Crosswork Network Insights is the first SaaS offering from Cisco. It is a cloud-based service that provides a rich analysis of routing and network data to significantly reduce the mean time to repair of networking issues, which can reduce costs and improve the subscriber experience.

Cisco 5G in action

See how the Cisco 5G solution can be used to transform business and overcome the most difficult challenges.

Mobile operators can create anywhere, anytime access to data center and cloud applications for business customers.

Maximizing 5G opportunities requires a mobile network with the control, flexibility and scale to deliver premium experiences.

Cable providers can leverage their networks to deliver 5G mobile services and wholesale backhaul with Cisco-led DOCSIS enhancements.

For many Cisco customers, 5G is a reality. Here are real-world examples of how Cisco is helping build out 5G networks around the world.
