“Just One Word… Elastic” – Cisco’s Elastic Core

October 3, 2012 - 0 Comments

If you saw the title of the blog and thought, The Graduate, pat yourself on the back!

  • Mr. McGuire: “I just want to say one word to you.  Just one word.  Are you listening?  Plastics.” (or in our case, Elastic.)
  • Benjamin: “How exactly do you mean?” (Thanks for asking… let us explain)

Yesterday Surya Panditi, SVP/GM of Cisco’s Service Provide Group discussed the new Cisco Elastic Core solution for the CRS platform.  Faster.  Bigger.  Stronger.  Smarter.  Innovations such as Cisco nLight Technology for 100G bring a whole new level of flexibility and programmability into the heart of the Next Generation Internet.

We caught up with Bill Gartner, VP/GM of Cisco’s High-End Routing and Optical Group, to get him to explain why the Internet needs a more flexible, Elastic Core and what it means for network operators.

To learn more about the Elastic Core solution and even get a chance to ask questions, please attend an upcoming Cisco Knowledge Network event on October 10th, 2012 at 8:00 AM PDT / 11:00 AM EDT. Registration details can be found here.
