$1 in CapEx consumed by service providers today does 11 times the work it did just a few years ago. Also, for each $1 in CapEx spent by operators, almost $5 in OpEx gets paid. This can’t continue unless we reinvent the rules.

Cisco is changing the economics of the Internet for the Future by powering service providers and web-scale operators to build a durable network foundation, created using breakthrough innovations. This interactive session will provide details on the innovations covering silicon, optics, software and systems. We will review why they help customers, with real-world examples, to implement new network architectures using these foundational technologies.

So mark your calendars and learn how you can benefit from building converged, cloud-enhanced and fabric-based network architectures that improve CapEx efficiency, OpEx utilization and time-to-service.
