• Service Provider Forum

    A forum to help you stay competitive and simplify the way your end users buy and deploy services

    What You Will Learn

    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.


    As Service providers are adopting innovations like SDN, NfV and automation across mobile, video, cloud and networking environments to increase profitability, SP leaders are rethinking how they deliver technology across their business, and in particular, SDN cloud services and network function virtualization (NfV) are emerging as primary components in their strategy.


    During the SP Forum, we will explore real-world solutions which help generate new revenue streams, reduce operating expenses and enhance agility through Cisco’s Evolved Programmable Network and Evolved Services Platform.
