Cisco's annual Packet Optical Network Conference (PONC) brings the intelligence, innovation and leadership of the network provider industry together, to discuss trends, share expertise and learn and see the latest networking technologies in the market. PONC 2014 will be held May 13-15 in San Jose, California at the Dolce Hayes Mansion.

 

Now in its 8th year, PONC promotes conversation among key players grappling with the common challenges of how to increase revenue while lowering total cost of ownership, while creating new customer experiences that work across networks, devices, industries and geographies boundaries.


Key benefits:

  • Discover the latest innovations in packet optical networking technology
  • Understand how Cisco transport solutions will embrace programmability and virtualization
  • Connect with networking industry visionaries, industry peers, and Cisco executives
  • Engage in strategic discussions with subject matter experts from Cisco

 

PONC has an unrivaled reputation for attracting Cisco's customers, experts, analysts and partners, and once again, this year's three-day conference will highlight a general session addressing a wide range of networking topics, a track of architectural workshops focused on enterprise, government and education and concluding with lab tours of Cisco's latest network innovations.

 

Three-Days at a Glance
