How Latency Meets its Match with Network Slicing

Network Slicing is a key concept in 5G and a way to utilize the network in a more intelligent and cost-effective way than ever before.

How to Support Future Traffic Growth: New 800G Optics MSA

The new QSFP-DD800 form factor MSA lays the foundation for 800G Ethernet pluggable optics.

Automating Network Slicing in the Transport Layer

Network slicing is essential for 5G service providers to deliver on stringent new SLAs while still producing quality service to their existing customer base, and we are excited to be at the forefront of delivering the next generation of technology solutions empowering 5G.

Securing the Mobile Transport Network

With the new 5G and IoT services, the network is becoming more interconnected than ever, and as a result, security is becoming even more critical. 5G and IoT impose a larger security risk on service provider mobile backhaul networks as a growing number of unsecured devices at the edge of the network could be compromised.

Now! Worry-Free NICs in Your Servers With Cisco Optics

Cisco Optics are now qualified on Cisco UCS servers even when using 3rd party NICs such as those from Intel, Mellanox, and QLogic. This is a significant development for data center operators who are more and more reliant on cables and pluggable optics as SFP and QSFP technology progress, and cloud applications dominate.

How Network Operators Can Drive Profitable Growth

With more devices connected and more content consumed online, market research on Internet traffic indicates a compounded annual growth rate of 30 percent or higher. Service Providers will make infrastructure investments to meet this demand but must mitigate a flat Average Revenue Per User figure. This blog discusses how network simplification and convergence will allow Service Providers to reduce operating costs and create new revenue opportunities.

Texas A&M University’s ‘12th Man Productions’ Transitions to an IP-based Infrastructure with Cisco IP Fabric …

Texas A&M University Athletics pairs Cisco IP Fabric for Media with existing expertise to create a robust solution for reliability, flexibility, and control. The transition from an SDI technology to IP-based infrastructure provides a scalable and secure fabric that can handle more capacity, better control of network traffic. Cisco’s IP Fabric for Media will provide Texas A&M’s 12th Man Productions with a highly reliable and secure network with zero-drop multicast.

Modernized Network Operations in the Automation-Everything Era

Choosing the right automation and orchestration technology partner is crucial to maximizing return on emerging technologies. Cisco is proud to provide industry-leading solutions in network automation and orchestration with Cisco Crosswork and Network Services Orchestrator.

Why 5G is Changing our Approach to Security

5G is an evolving architecture which will require enhanced security mechanisms to cater to the widened threat surface. Cybersecurity is foundational to realizing dependable and resilient 5G services. Cisco’s 5G solution has security included as a foundation. Government regulators and network operators must work hand-in-hand to ensure cybersecurity best practices and capabilities are designed into 5G infrastructure and operations right from the start.
