Abstract:


As service providers look to reduce their OpEx and CapEx, they should consider converging the IP and DWDM layers. The technology and the means currently exist to enable this convergence and deliver savings and increased revenue through accelerated speed to service and reliability in an increasingly competitive environment. These goals can be achieved without compromising the performance and scale that is needed to accommodate traffic growth for the next decade resulting from application convergence of all video, voice, and data traffic to IP. To deliver on this promise of IPoDWDM convergence, service providers need a partner that understands their business and has a clearly defined vision and strategy, including an execution plan for that strategy, and all the critical components of the end-to-end solution Cisco.
