Cisco has expanded the Cisco Evolved Programmable Network (EPN) portfolio — promising programmability, virtualization and orchestration capabilities.
Cisco Evolved Programmable Network, an application centric network infrastructure, helps in expanding business and accelerates time to revenue while reducing costs and complexities of deploying new services.
The new technologies include Cisco Application Engineered Routing, Cisco IOS XRv 9000 Virtual Router and high density 100GE line cards for the Cisco ASR 9000 series.
Service providers can use these latest EPN innovations to increase profitability and service agility in delivering new revenue generating services to customers.
According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index Global Forecast for 2013 to 2018, the IP traffic will increase three fold as internet users are increasing and viewing more videos. Cisco’s EPN enables web speed agility with an open, elastic and application centric network infrastructure and works via open APIs with Cisco Evolved Services Platform.
According to Cisco Consulting Services, service providers have $1.7 trillion opportunity over the next decade as predicted by Internet of Everything (IoE). The Cisco EPN offers service providers the tools to evolve their network infrastructures to manage M2M unprecedented dynamic traffic patterns.
Cisco Application Engineered Routing is an end to end solution which allowed Cisco to build an agile service creation environment by combining the capabilities of open, standards based Segment Routing with software defined networking (SDN).
Cisco Application Engineered Routing allows the service providers to reduce operational costs and drive incremental revenue and also offers new level of programmability.
The IOS XRv 9000 Virtual Router increase service agility and provides a low cost entry point for the IOS XR family and will be available in Q2 2015.
Cisco’s high density 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) line cards for the Cisco ASR 9000 Series enables each 100GE port to be configured as 100GE, 40GE or 10x10GE as required by the customer.
The high density Ethernet is available in both four and eight versions and support Cisco silicon photonic CPAK technology.
Cisco has recently expanded its center for collaboration research and emerging technology in the UK to focus on the Internet of things market.
