Establish the foundation for the converged SDN transport network

Watch Webex On-Demand

5G transport and edge networks present a revolutionary opportunity for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to increase earnings, accelerate service innovation and reduce costs. Next generation networks, including 5G, are characterized by their increasingly dynamic nature. However, this comes at the cost of increased operational complexity and network capacity variability. By leaving things as they are, CSPs are faced with either an exponentially rising operational and capital cost, as more services are introduced or instead will be forced to limit service innovation to allow existing operational processes to continue working; effectively “nailing down” the new technology.

Cisco’s Crosswork Hierarchical Controller can provide the foundation for the automated and efficient 5G transport network. It can enable an operator to scale their operational processes without the need to grow headcount and/or limit the benefits of 5G. Cisco’s Crosswork Hierarchical Controller can automate the management of IP/Optical transport networks here delivering quantitative benefits for all operators, be they mobile, fixed broadband or enterprise focused.

In this webinar we will share the real-world CAPEX and OPEX savings and improved customer experience that CSPs can achieve with Cisco’s Crosswork Hierarchical Controller validated in a new economic and ROI analysis by Appledore Research. Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Appledore Research’s white paper on the session topic.
