We know the future of connectivity is wireless and Cisco is continuing to disrupt the market through innovation. These technologies are not only changing the design of the internet but ensuring the connections are better than ever. Currently, 3 billion people on the planet are underserved in terms of internet access. Cisco is challenging the status quo of how we build and manage networks to build an inclusive future for all – rethinking how networks are built, especially optical networks. Routed Optical Networking is a great example of how Cisco is driving the network transformation through simplification, cost reduction, and increased efficiency. We are removing the need for expensive optical transponders with this transition to RON. Cisco can provide the complete end-to-end solution from the data center to campus and we are making the investments needed to ensure we continue to connect as many people as possible.
The path forward is clear and we are in a great position to continue this positive momentum. Building the internet of the future is no small task and we need the right people to help make this happen. I’m happy to announce the addition of Angela Finn as the new WW Packet Optical Director for Mass-Scale Infrastructure. She will be focused on leading our specialist sales team leveraging Cisco’s latest advancements and leadership in IP, Optical, Optics, and Routed Optical Networking (RON) in providing game-changing solutions for our customers. Angela has over 20 years of experience in service provider sales, with nearly 15 years at her previous company. With Angela’s expertise and industry knowledge, we are very excited to have her on board to expand our customer partnerships and create further market disruption.
Again, welcome to the team Angela!
