Must See! ACG’s Ray Mota: “Show Me the Money” with Cisco nV Technology

Cisco ASR 9000 system with nV

We’ve talked a bit before about Cisco’s revolutionary network Virtualization technology or “nV.” In case you aren’t familiar with it, nV technology on the ASR product family intelligently blends the network edge, aggregation and access layers into a single system. This can deliver up to 70 percent operational expense savings, increase network capacity and accelerate IPv6 service deployments (very important since we’ve got the World IPv6 Launch next week). nV therefore addresses some of our customer’s most important business concerns by:

  • Lowering  capital costs by simplifying the network
  • Lowering  operational expenses by scaling the network operational efficiencies
  • Increasing revenue by enabling them to better leverage network intelligence

But don’t just take our word for it. ACG Research has developed a business case analysis using real world data to show how Cisco’s network virtualization technology can revolutionize profitability for operators. The analysis covers when nV is deployed across the edge, aggregation and access networks to support residential, enterprise and mobile services. The analysis also captures the market’s evolutionary change in the access network from E1/T1 to Ethernet-based technology and compares the nV solution with the Present Mode of Operations from various vendors. The model addresses the change for backhaul of 2G, 3G, and 4G radio technologies and for enterprise Internet access and L3 VPN services.

We encourage you to join Ray Mota of ACG Research to learn how the analysis shows that our nV technology reduces total cost of network operations by up to 70% as compared to alternative solutions. For this webcast you can register here.

If the analysis isn’t enough, perhaps “seeing” the real demonstration is? Not everyone has had an opportunity to see nV in action so we’re bringing it to Cisco Live 2012 in San Diego June 10-14. We’ll have a demonstration by our own crack team of ASR 9000 Technical Marketing Engineers at the Software for Your Network and Beyond booth number 2576 (it’s the one with the climbing wall. No really…think of it as a metaphor for climbing new heights of scale and performance. OK, maybe not…but we’ve got a cool climbing wall this year).

If you are totally sold and just want to buy it…well as they say “operators are standing by.” Just contact your account team and they’d be more than happy to ship you an ASR 9000 system with nV technology ready to go.
