CSCO-CIO – Cisco Systems COO Tom Riedel says that Cisco’s Internetworking architecture will allow customers to connect to their businesses from the comfort of their homes.
He also talked about the upcoming Cisco iSeries and i20 products.
The announcement comes in the wake of a major outage in Europe, which led to the cancellation of more than 20,000 Cisco routers and switches worldwide.
The router and switch manufacturer announced that the affected routers and switch are no longer supported.
The outage forced the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of customers.
The disruption in Europe prompted a review of the industry’s network architecture, including the Cisco iNX and iSX network architectures.
Cisco has said that the Cisco architecture has been adopted in over 500 countries and territories and will continue to evolve.
The new architecture will support up to 100 million simultaneous devices.
The iSeries Networking Architecture will enable customers to provide an Internetwork experience that’s more reliable, resilient, and responsive than ever before.
The Cisco i20 Networking architecture will be more scalable, flexible, and scalable than ever, according to CSCo-COO Tom Krieger.
“We are excited to introduce a new architecture that will deliver the same capabilities and features as the existing iSeries,” said Tom Rieger.
The switch and router product families are scheduled to enter commercial service in the second half of 2018.
This announcement comes as Cisco is ramping up its efforts to deliver new products for customers.
Earlier this year, Cisco introduced the iSeries, iNx, iSx, and iN+ networking products.
In addition to new products, Cisco is also releasing a new Cisco Cloud platform to enable the cloud-based deployment of its products.
