Each year, the Cisco VNI report forecasts global IP traffic growth for fixed and mobile networks, painting a highly detailed picture of internet use both now, and in the near future. This year’s report once again paints a picture of near-universal strong uptake in connectivity. Since the VNI forecast began in 2005 traffic has increased 56-fold as more people, devices and applications have accessed IP networks. But that’s nothing compared to what’s coming, with over a billion extra people and over ten billion extra devices set to come online by 2022. In order to meet these challenges, Global service providers are focused on transforming their networks to accommodate changing traffic types, usage patterns, and data volumes.2018-12-04http://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9903/ Cisco SONFlex Helps VodafoneZiggo Ready for 5G with RAN Automationhttp://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9901MAASTRICHT, Netherlands – December 3, 2018 – Cisco today announced its plans to execute on a radio access network (RAN) automation strategy using the Cisco SON (self-organizing network) platform for VodafoneZiggo.2018-12-03http://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9901/ Cisco joins forces with the Police to help make the UK the safest place in the world to be onlinehttp://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9882To mark the first anniversary of its digital skills manifesto in the UK, Cisco today announced that it is partnering with UK police forces to help provide cybersecurity training for officers across the nation. 2018-11-29http://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9882/ Cisco Unites SD-WAN and Security to Address the New Cloud Edgehttp://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9803Cisco is unifying its security and software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) technologies to help organizations embrace the cloud faster with choice and confidence. 2018-11-13http://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9803/ Cisco Transforms Cloud Calling and Huddle Spaceshttp://emear.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9804Whether you need to make a simple phone call or communicate, share and co-create across time zones to make that deadline, Cisco® collaboration provides the cloud services and products you need.
