Automation and orchestration bring a significant benefit to service providers as they seek to reduce cost and improve revenue. Cisco has recently completed a research study about the operational processes of major service provider customers that have automated their environment and shared real-world ROI results. These results are compelling and show how you can address one of your biggest challenges: reducing high operational costs. These operational costs span both legacy and virtual services and infrastructure. Join us in this session as we review this study and examine customer case studies and real-world business outcomes from successful orchestration deployments. Learn why network function virtualization, software-defined networking, and orchestration offer a simpler approach to network complexity and how automation using Cisco Network Services Orchestrator brings together automation, flexibility, and speed needed to deliver and support a new class of carrier cloud services.
