Building Blocks of 5G Profitability

Create new revenue through premium self-services

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

It breaks down the barriers across enterprise, cloud and connectivity service provider (CSP) networks to enable business customers to seamlessly manage policies, security, and services - increasing speed to market and customer satisfaction.

Monetizing improved subscriber experiences through the cloud

Expand business reach and agility with full featured cloud native 5G/4G Packet Core which 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 resulting agility, reach, responsiveness empowers network slicing to improve subscriber experiences,  expand revenue opportunities, and optimize capex.

Increase speed to revenue through multi-vendor orchestration

Cisco NSO’s proven to deliver high-quality services faster and more easily with open API orchestration across your entire network.
