A few months ago, Cisco's Videoscape platform was about as much of a vague concept as the cloud itself. Ultimately, both concepts are meant to be far-reaching and comprehensive, giving service providers ways to serve more customers than ever, with fewer things to worry about.

Cisco does the best job of explaining Videoscape's attributes and how those attributes manifest themselves in the cloud. The key message is that Cisco wants to give service providers the tools to handle delivery of any kind of content to any kind of device, where and when subscribers demand it:

All the while, as service providers journey toward a network where any video format is being delivered to any device a consumer has, Cisco has acknowledged that there won't be one path that works for every provider, so flexibility is key:

In the context of this test, Part III of this CloudVerse deconstruction will give some of Videoscape's highlights, including the ability to control the mobile video experience in a way that helps service providers make the most money from their network investments. Also thrown in are two examples of cloud applications that have a specific enterprise tilt, putting many of the attributes of Cisco's Unified Data Center to the test.

Here is the full table of contents for this series of equipment and service tests and demo observations:

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
