Cisco launches cloud-enabled routing and WAN optimization platforms

Telecom Lead India: Cisco has launched the Cisco Cloud
Connected Solution, cloud-enabled routing and wide area network (WAN)
optimization platforms.

The new product solution enables users to securely
connect to cloud services.

The Cisco Cloud Connected Solution helps organizations
easily and securely take advantage of cloud computing and accelerate the
deployment of cloud services while delivering an optimal user experience at the
lowest cost.

“As businesses are driving the rapid adoption of
cloud based services, routing platforms and the WAN have become a strategic
control point to provide an optimal user experience across the cloud. The Cisco
Cloud Connected Solution redefines the WAN architecture with key innovations
that leverage the network intelligence as a critical link in cloud deployments
by putting more functionality into traditional enterprise routing, allowing
customers to connect to the cloud with an optimal user experience,” said
Praveen Akkiraju, senior vice president and general manager, Cisco Services
Routing Technology Group.

“Network infrastructure must rapidly adapt to fully
support future enterprise communications systems, which will be highly
virtualized, intelligent and application-aware. The impact of new
infrastructure and application strategies on the network cannot be overstated.
To prepare for these changes, the enterprise network must be modernized, and
enterprises must plan for the retirement of legacy technologies,” said
Bjarne Munch, principal research analyst at Gartner.
