Converging the Core: Agility, Intelligence, and Scale

The Cisco Evolved Programmable Network (EPN) is a natural evolution of the IP NGN, which now includes both physical and virtual infrastructure while easily extending into the data center. The Cisco EPN tightly integrates network, storage, and compute functions, enabling real-time shifting of physical and virtual resources that work across the network and data center transparently.

This session will focus on trends in the network core and how service providers can cost-effectively meet the growing demands of cloud and data center–centric services.

OpenStack and InterCloud

OpenStack and InterCloud are becoming a leading topics of discussion for companies investigating their journey to the cloud.

In this session, you will learn about:

  • How Cisco’s cloud offering integrates with OpenStack
  • The implications of InterCloud that was announced at CiscoLive Milan
  • How you can benefit from a private, public, and secure hybrid cloud solution from Cisco’s InterCloud and OpenStack strategy

Unified Gateways Overview

Cable operators have a constant need for delivering new services to prevent churn, increase ARPU, or reduce OpEx. They feel competitive pressure from data/video service providers, over-the-top video providers, and over-the-top new services providers (for example, home security).


This session will explore the areas in which Cisco can help to maintain the operator’s competitive edge from the home perspective:

  • Speed: MSOs need to deliver faster data services to become competitive
  • Video: As the video consumption market is moving to over-the-top (OTT) video delivery over IP, cable operators are challenged with serving similar capabilities for managed video delivery. Although MSOs can deliver higher quality video with QoS, they are lagging the concept of delivering video content to any IP device in the home. The new unified gateways that distribute video inside the home and the related architectures will be addressed.

Hybrid Fiber Coaxial Migration: The Node as a Platform

In this session you will learn how planning specific growth plans and strategies for your hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) networks will maximize your infrastructure for DOCSIS 3.1.
Customer demand for data and bandwidth continues to expand at a rapid pace. Next-generation cable access is crucial to addressing this challenge:

  • Optimized for D3.1 splits and deep fiber architectures
  • Transparent upgrades to digital fiber architecture (remote PHY)
  • Logical FTTx launch points for commercial and residential
  • Critical component of migration to virtualization

An Evolutionary Approach Toward Virtualizing Packet Core

In this session, you will learn the approach Cisco has taken to virtualizing its packet core solution, its architecture and implementation, with the focus on the results of the portability testing of Cisco Quantum Virtualized Packet Core (VPC) and the ASR 5000 Series platform performed by EANTC in December 201, and the report that was published at the MWC 2014. Primary takeaways include:

  • Cisco Quantum VPC architecture, implementation, and benefits
  • Proven Star OS modular across ASR 5k Series and virtualized environment
  • Zero subscriber session loss extended to virtual environment
  • Hardware and hypervisor independence

Orchestrating the Network with Multivendor WAN

In February 2014, Cisco introduced the Evolved Services Platform (ESP), a comprehensive software platform that orchestrates and virtualizes services in real time. Cisco ESP delivers on the commitments of the Cisco Open Network Environment by transforming service provider operational and business models through accelerated service velocity and a sharp reduction in operational costs. By using orchestration technologies, networks and applications have complete visibility into each other, enabling advanced services such as bandwidth calendaring and bandwidth on demand, TE tunnel building, load placement, multilayer optimization, and business intelligence.

Join us on May 28 and learn how carriers can generate rapid ROI by using the intelligence of their networks to create these new services while driving down costs.
