Service Provider Program

Register today to hold your spot for the Service Provider Program at Cisco Live 2014.


As more businesses rely on networks to help them reach new markets, enable collaboration, and make smarter use of resources, service providers play an increasingly important role and are chartered to power the Internet of Everything. At the same time, service providers still face the fundamental challenges of gaining new revenue streams as well as reducing the ever-mounting operational expenses. Cisco is focusing on delivering new technologies for global service providers to transform their business and capitalize on the Internet of Everything. We, as Cisco, are constantly looking for ways to help service providers thrive by enhancing agility, increasing revenue, and decreasing operating expenses.

The Service Provider program includes new technical and business sessions focused on a wide range of topics. These sessions will introduce you to the latest technologies including Programmable Networks, Services Orchestration, and Autonomous Operations in the Access Networks. Expert engineers from the network, mobility, video, and cloud will be presenting these technical sessions designed to help you gain the knowledge you need to be competitive and simplify the way your end users buy and deploy services.

Kick off your week with the Service Provider Technology Trend Keynote on Sunday evening. Also please check out the Cisco Live Online webpage with lot of latest videos and white papers.
