Cisco Routed Optical Networking

Why Innovation Is Key To Connecting The Next 3 Billion

It is incredibly challenging to provide high-speed connectivity in rural areas. Service providers need to innovate and go beyond the traditional network deployment models to provide broadband connectivity in difficult-to-reach areas. Open RAN provides a paradigm shift beyond traditional network deployment and will help connect the remaining half of the world's population.

The Internet for the Future: Simple, Flexible, and Affordable

The legacy architecture has multiple layers that have created not only architectural silos. There is an opportunity to simplify this complex and redundant three-layer architecture. Rakuten Mobile takes this approach to use Segment Routing over IPv6 (SRv6) and Cisco Routed Optical Networking to add operational flexibility, enhance profitability, and improve time-to-market. The service provider would be using this to bring newer opportunities, including 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) offerings, to its enterprise customers.
