Please join Cisco at OFC 2014 in San Francisco March 9-13 where we’ll demonstrate how the Evolved Programmable Network powers the Internet of Everything through innovations in programmability, convergence, and scale.  The recently announced Network Convergence System – the first product family built from the ground up around convergence – will be front and center, with live demonstrations of the NCS 6000, NCS 4000, and NCS 2000 series products.


The Cisco Network Convergence System

Massive scale of packet based services and high density optical interfaces will be on display as part of the NCS 6000 demonstration, while the NCS 4000 will feature convergence of packet, TDM, and optical services with multi-chassis scalability.  The NCS 2000 will show superchannel creation and transport over a flexible DWDM architecture built upon the industry’s most scalable flex spectrum ROADM.


Last year’s unveiling of the Cisco CPAK module was undoubtedly the highlight of OFC 2013. This year we’ll focus on CPAK’s ability to address a variety of applications from data center switching to routing and transport, highlighted with a live demonstration of the industry’s highest density 10G single module transceiver, the Cisco CPAK-10X10G-LR. 


Last but not least, Cisco’s booth will feature a multi-layer SDN technology demonstration featuring 3D visualization of constraint based service activation.


Cisco experts will be onsite to discuss the Network Convergence System, the CPAK portfolio, and to provide previews of some exciting upcoming products. Please contact your Cisco Account Team to discuss further.     


We look forward to seeing you at Booth 4359 in the Moscone Center at OFC 2014.
