Cisco Live San Francisco 2014, the Evolved Programmable Network Comes to Life in the Service Provider Booth
Cisco Live San Francisco 2014, the Evolved Programmable
Network Comes to Life in the Service Provider Booth
By Igor Dayen, Manager, Service Provider Marketing, Cisco
This year at Cisco Live San Francisco that runs May 18-22 you’ll have an opportunity to
come face-to-face and learn about the Cisco’s Open Network Environment (ONE)
architecture for service providers. You will get a comprehensive and holistic view of the
challenges and opportunities as service providers enable the Internet of Everything
Cisco ONE for Service Providers consists of three layers: the Application layer, the
Evolved Services Platform (ESP) layer, and the Evolved Programmable Network (EPN)
layer. The IoE applications and services, created by Cisco and third party application
developers are shown at the top. These applications will exist and interact with
network resources in new and innovative ways to optimize user experience and service
delivery. Between the application layer and the EPN lies the middle layer–ESP–where
service management, orchestration and automation drive the virtualized world of unified
computing systems. The foundation of Cisco ONE for Service Providers is the EPN: the
network fabric that ties together both physical and virtual network elements into a fully
flexible and highly scalable solution.
Figure 1: Cisco Open Network Environment for SPs
Below are the demonstrations in the SP Booth that will illustrate the Cisco SP
High Density Programmable Core
Here we’re going to showcase our newest flagship product, the Cisco NCS 6000
Router. It’s the first Cisco Live event where we’re bringing the NCS 6000 to
demonstrate it live. You can see how Cisco AnyPort Technology enables both high-
density 10G and 100G services using CPAK optics based on silicon photonics.
Cisco’s NCS 2000 Flex Spectrum ROADM Technology
Attendees will get to see the Cisco NCS 2000 Optical Transport Shelf featuring the
latest in transport optimization solutions including Colorless, Contentionless, Omi-
directional and Flex Spectrum (CCOFS) ROADM technology. The NCS 2000 is part of
Cisco’s comprehensive 100G portfolio, designed to support 100G and beyond transport
speeds, including OTN and Super channel technologies.
Cisco NCS 4000 Optical Transport Network (OTN) Switching, Optimized
performance of DWDM, 1Tb Superchannel
In this demo we’ll show how Cisco OTN technology will enable service providers to build
a packet transport infrastructure with the same reliability as the operational models of
SONET/SDH. You will witness how OTN enables stronger FEC (Forward Error
Correction), Switching Scalability, and more levels of TCM (Tandem correction
ASR 9000 nV Technology
In this demo we’ll show how Cisco nV Technology enables Virtual Chassis features:
carriers or enterprise customers are able to interact with a single network device (e.g.,
ASR Router) while accessing remote/satellite network elements as if they are virtual
blades and I/O elements on that single device, greatly simplifying and enhancing the
network operators control over network resources and services.
ASR 9000 Virtualized Services Module
In this demo we will showcase the benefits of virtualization to make the network more
flexible, agile and simpler to manage. We will also demonstrate how the Cisco’s ASR
9000 router leverages the VSM that makes it easy for service providers to transition
network infrastructure services to virtual workloads.
Cisco Elastic Access Solution
Here we’ll show you how Autonomous Networking infrastructure can enable Zero-touch
provisioning and deployment for access networks.
Evolved Services Platform (ESP) Demos: WAN and Cloud
WAN Orchestration and Automation
We will be demonstrating WAN Orchestration and Automation, optimization applications
such as TE tunnel building and load balancing. This solution extends the Cisco MATE
technology to efficiently orchestrate multi-protocol network and make optimum use of
ESP Interactive test drive
In this demonstration of the end-to-end Services Orchestration you’ll learn how the
Evolved Services Platform can rapidly provision new services using network, storage,
and cloud resources.
Premium Mobile Broadband (PMB)
Here you’ll learn how Cisco's PMB solution enables the deployment of private 3G/LTE
wireless networks that can support mission-critical enterprise applications when
commercial mobile networks can’t be relied upon. We’ll also demonstrate how the Cisco
PMB solution, based on the Cisco Quantum Virtualized Packet Core (QvPC), can now
be deployed using off-the-shelf hardware in a form factor and scale that is suitable for
Innovation Program and Monetization and Optimization Index Tools
Virtualize, Visualize, Simulate - Cisco Modeling Labs
Learn how to simulate large service provider topologies using Cisco Modeling Lab
(CML) and Virtual Internet Routing Lab (VIRL) applications.
Innovation Pod - Faster Innovate to Deploy
See how Cisco allows SPs quickly ramp up with delivering services by using Cisco
Innovation Pods. Innovation Pod provides the needed VNFs, orchestration, and the
hardware – all in one bundle - to deliver NfV service orchestration.
Optimize and Monetize the Network - SP Monetization Tool
Learn how to identify the key monetization opportunities. This tool will provide
customers an estimated 5-year revenue projection based on their current financial
model, forecast, and business strategies.
As you explore the World of Solutions you will learn how service providers lay the
foundation for connecting enterprise network and cloud computing in a secure
environment. Start the journey at the Service Provider booth #1187.
