Join us in OFC 2017


Join us in Los Angeles for OFC 2017, the largest global conference and exhibition for optical communications and networking professionals. At this year’s conference we’ll showcase Cisco’s industry-leading solutions for Transport Network Modernization, Central Office Transformation, Data Center Interconnect (DCI), and Open Networking Architecture.

Visit Cisco Booth 1501

There’s never been a better time to transform your network. Stop by our booth to see the latest Cisco platforms and demonstrations in action:

  • Automating Optical Interconnects for Web Scale: See how our optimized point-to-point DCI DWDM transport solution, composed of the Cisco NCS 1002 and NCS 1001 and the latest version of the Cisco IOS XR Software operating system, can be used to simplify and automate DWDM networks through the use of zero-touch provisioning, automated configuration, and streaming telemetry.
  • QSFP-DD Pluggable Transceiver Form Factor for 400G Applications: We demonstrate the thermal performance of a fully populated 1RU system with QSFP-DD transceivers dissipating up to 12W.
  • Telemetry-Driven Automation: See how our innovative new platform redefines service provider network operations by integrating telemetry, big data, machine learning, and model-driven APIs. Learn how this platform can enable you to efficiently build an Application Ecosystem that closes the loop between configuration and monitoring for both customers and partners.
  • Service Lifecycle Management: From Planning to Assurance: Learn how Cisco Evolved Programmable Network (EPN) Manager can be used to provide simplified device operations, administration, provisioning, and assurance management for today’s converged packet and optical multilayer networks. See how our intuitive next-generation Cisco Network Planner tool can be used to perform tasks including multilayer OTN/DWDM design, what-if strategic analysis, network import and sharing, and full failure analysis.
  • Optical Multitenant Solution: See how the Cisco Optical Multitenant Solution can be used to embed and manage OVPNs, instantiate and delete optical circuits, and use the restoration capabilities of GMPLS to provide OVPN-specific restoration of optical connections.
