Cisco has announced major innovations in its converged Routed Optical Networking platform. Aiming to redefine the Internet economy and help service providers bridge the digital divide by connecting more people, places and things, new solutions and features can enable up to 45% energy savings and up to 70% energy savings. % in space. Cisco unveiled its Future Internet strategy in December 2019, introducing new silicon, optics, and software that lower the cost of building and expanding networks. In March 2021, it introduced its innovative Routed Optical Networking architecture, featuring converged network protocols, reduced network layers, advanced automation, and simplified network access for the rise of 5G. New features now include new private line emulation technology to transport any legacy service over a converged IP infrastructure, advanced automation software, and consulting services through Cisco Customer Experience (CX), among others.

Sustainability and service guarantee

Designed to reduce opex and capex and meet sustainability challenges, the enhanced Cisco Routed Optical Networking platform increases your capacity and scalability while reducing energy consumption. The modularity and programmability of the Cisco IOS XR operating system minimizes configuration and operation tasks, also using recyclable material in the packaging.
