Cisco, the American multinational technology conglomerate headquartered in California, has admitted out on the first wave of cloud computing but company executives are confident that a new programmable silicon architecture and router will empower a new course.
In a recent investor conference,Cisco’s Jonathan Davidson said the vendor made a fault by falling short in that first phase of the web build outs as it did not listen to its customers.
Davidson explained that this resulted in failure on its part not to build what its hyperscale customers needed and not changing how products and services were consumed for a cloud-based model. He also commented that Cisco is increasingly optimistic about opportunities in 5G that will require operators to make big technology decisions around their radio access network, mobile core,and transport infrastructure for IP and optical networks.
This segment is also being impacted by a surge in the demand and use of virtual and open RAN technologies that are becoming more beneficial and standardized for telecom environments.
This week, Cisco also announced its plans to purchase ThousandEyes, a multi-cloud network monitoring vendor, for nearly $1 billion. This deal will help Cisco with the ability to enhance internet intelligence and in-application experience intelligence for driving its network-as-a-service offerings.
Analysts noted that it can be tied into Webex, Cisco’s SD-WAN, and other platforms that are delivered over the internet. Once integrated, Cisco remarked that customers will be able to turn on the embedded ThousandEyes agents with a single click and a single license.
