In a notion of commemorating 20th anniversary, Cisco comes together with major web companies to roll out three new products to make Digital disruption a reality.
According to a report by Cisco and the International Institute of Management Development (IMD) in Lausanne, Switzerland, forty percent of market leaders globally will be displaced or eliminated by digital disruptors in the next 5 years.
A snippet on the three new products:
Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 1000 Series: With a rapidly increasing number of people, devices, machines and sensors coming online, companies require new capabilities to succeed. As data traffic increases, connectivity within the data center and between data centers needs greater capacity to meet ever-increasing bandwidth demands. The NCS 1000 Series delivers fully programmable, high-bandwidth capacity between data centes which improves business agility and simplifies operations to deliver high-bandwidth mobile, video, and cloud services.
Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 5000 Series: According to Cisco Global Cloud Index, network traffic between and from data centers is expected to increase threefold by 2019. To meet this expotential growth in traffic, networks need software and hardware solutions that are optimized for scale to deliver cloud applications with greater agility, automation and simplicity. The NCS 5000 Series is designed to economically scale large enterprise and provide over-the-top (OTT) services. With the NCS 5000, Cisco is leading the industry toward cloud-scale networking, converging the data center and WAN and delivering new levels of speed, automation and simplicity.
The 5520 and 8540 Series Wireless LAN Controllers: According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index forecast, Wi-Fi traffic will exceed wired traffic by 21 percent in 2019. Driven by the explosive growth of the Internet of Everything (IoE), the share of smart devices and connections as a percentage of the total will double to 54 percent by 2019. The 5520/8540 Series Wireless LAN controllers are designed to handle the large number of devices and increased traffic seamlessly. They are designed with cutting edge technology devices and provide head room for business for future growth.
Spanning the areas of mobility, cloud and computing technologies, the networking products have been designed to enable the digital transformation of enterprises that rely on technology-enabled networks to exchange digital value, including data and transactions.
The three products strongly demonstrate Cisco’s ability to create products and solutions for large web companies and the next generation of communications technologies said the release.
