Published 2008; Posted July 2008


The applications of the future will place extraordinary demands on IP and optical networks. Fortunately, new network technologies not only can meet those demands, but can provide groundbreaking capabilities to deliver services more flexibly and cost-effectively than ever before.

Combining a rich history of DWDM and reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) innovation with worldwide leadership in IP technology, Cisco is uniquely positioned to provide the ideal IPoDWDM solution and deliver on the promise of the IP Next-Generation Network.

These innovations are operating in service provider networks around the world today, and delivering real benefits in the approaching Zettabyte Era.
