Evolved Programmable Network (EPN)

Evolve your network infrastructure

Deliver new services faster with an openly programmable network strategy.


Grow your business with your existing infrastructure

Expand your business faster and more easily with the Cisco Evolved Programmable Network. This network infrastructure brings software programmability and virtualization to the underlying physical hardware.

It can help you:  

  • Simplify existing networks and make them more agile
  • Make money faster
  • Cut costs and complexities when deploying new services

Our Evolved Programmable Network works with open APIs. It complements the Cisco Evolved Services Platform to help you realize these goals.


  • Improve agility

That's the result of combining software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), and open-source software technologies.

  • Take control of your network

Automate, orchestrate, simplify, and speed up service delivery.

  • Integrate resources

Bring together network, compute, and storage resources across a multi-vendor environment.

  • Increase flexibility

Support higher-performing applications, and better use your network resources.
