Cisco Systems Inc. www.cisco.com today introduced Cisco Unified Service Delivery, an offering that helps service providers build a foundation for cloud services, while they transform the delivery of consumer and business applications to any place and device.

 

With Unified Service Delivery and a next-generation IP network, a service provider can deliver video, data and video services from the data centre, enabling it to substantially optimize resources, assure quality, significantly reduce operational costs, and deliver a better, more expansive and more secure virtual experience for their customers, Cisco says. 

 

Cisco adds that consumers and businesses are demanding new services and more from their network experiences. In fact, the increased demand for connected experiences has contributed to a projected 46% compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) in global Internet traffic, as estimated by the most recent Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI).

 

Launching new services poses challenges for service providers as traditional approaches do not quickly or cost-effectively accommodate such growth profitably, the company said.

 

Cisco Unified Service Delivery includes the company’s Unified Computing System, its Nexus switch and the CRS-1 Carrier routing system.
