Bringing Mass-Scale Networking to the Masses

Mass-scale networks go through cycles of major architecture transitions, and those cycles can be long and difficult. Architectural transformations require agility and decisions to be made along the way, but when the transformation is completed, the organization cannot help but benefit. Cisco’s Mass-scale Infrastructure Group (MIG) is designed to help customers to do just that – to develop and grow new revenue streams, reduce costs, and mitigate risks. They build silicon, optics, hardware, software, and systems innovations for the largest and most advanced networks in the world.

Today’s end users expect low latency, security, and high availability for their applications, data, video, cloud, and IoT traffic. Cisco’s best-in-class routing and optical portfolio improves the network experience for enterprise, public sector, and service provider customers with high performance, scale, resiliency, and control across distance, in different industries/verticals. The Mass-Scale Infrastructure portfolio offers network modernization, 5G, PrivateWAN, Metro Access, and Data Center Interconnect (DCI) solutions. It is offered through a Flexible Consumption Model (FCM), or pay-as-you-grow subscription model, which means lower upfront costs, simplified capacity planning and license management, protected investments, and much more.

SDN Converged Transport with the emergence of the Routed Optical Network (RON) and the transition to 5G are two key areas where Cisco can bring insight and value. RON is all about driving simplicity to operations and greatly reducing both CAPEX and OPEX. Cisco is committed to innovating to help customers unlock new revenue streams in both the enterprise and consumer domains, be that IoT, private cellular, AR/VR, immersive sports viewing, etc. Cisco MIG brings the power of Wi-Fi, Private 5G, and IoT together. With Private 5G (P5G) as a service, Cisco is helping businesses rapidly scale and digitize their operations with the goal of supporting hybrid work. The Cisco MIG team is also involved in many 5G initiatives that span private wireless, Open Radio Access Networking (OpenRAN), and cloud-native architectural approaches. These initiatives aim to help operators reduce costs, mitigate risk, scale deployments, and find new monetization opportunities.
