Consumers and enterprises use more data every day. Meanwhile competition and commoditization are driving down the price of data. Service providers must find a way to serve more data at lower prices with fixed capital spending. This seems like an impossible task. Are they caught in a margin-crunching vise?
In this Webinar you’ll learn how Cisco can help Service Providers escape the vise with network automation and segment routing for more capital-efficient software defined IP transport networks. We will share how Service Providers can optimize bandwidth on existing network infrastructure using Cisco’s Crosswork closed loop automation.
We’ll also share insights on how service providers can drive revenue with enterprise IP-based service offers. This Webinar will include an overview and demo of the new Crosswork Networkontroller, our turnkey solution for end-to-end provisioning and management of intent-based networks.
