United States : CISCO continues to develop fully programmable and AGILE NETWORKING ARCHITECTURE [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Cisco is continuing to develop a fully programmable and agile networking architecture for service providers.
It is stated by the Sanjeev Mervana, senior director of service provider marketing at Cisco that in the three-layer Cisco ONE service provider architecture, the Cisco Evolved Services Platform is the middle layer, between the application and Cisco Evolved Programmable Network layers.
According to Mervana, "It is a comprehensive unified virtualization and orchestration software platform that brings together compute, storage and network functions from the infrastructure layer and connects them seamlessly to applications running across multiple domains. It represents a fundamental shift in the way service provider networks will be built. Without Cisco Evolved Services Platform, in the current mode of operations many of such steps are done well in advance to offer specific services, which requires service providers to do lot of upfront planning in design".
He continued that the Evolved Services Platform will result in operational cost savings for service providers by way of advanced automation capabilities.
In addition, the platform provides the promise of new revenue-generating opportunities by enabling service providers to personalize services.
The Evolved Services Platform virtualizes key capabilities of Cisco's service provider networking products, comprising the Cisco Aggregation Services Router (ASR) 5000 Series and the Cisco ASR 5500.
Rhe Cisco Evolved Services Platform objectives are delivery speed and agility. Mervana said that it enables providers to automatically create, provision and manage various different physical and virtual resources in real time.
