The third wave of Internet expansion, the Internet of Everything (IoE), is expected to emerge from the convergence of people, process, data and things.

The third wave of Internet expansion, the Internet of Everything (IoE), is expected to emerge from the convergence of people, process, data and things. Cisco estimates the value at stake for IoE at $14 trillion over the next 10 years. In addition to massive scalability, IoE requires an intelligent contextual architecture. For IoE, service providers must offer higher security, reliability, and availability with networks that also offer higher service speed and flexibility. In addition, they need network autonomy, process automation, and tools to meet the challenges of managing a much more complex network.

Cisco Network Convergence System is a family of integrated packet transport and routing systems designed to help service providers capture their share of the IoE value at stake. Built on major innovations in network and software, NCS provides the building blocks of a multi-layer converged network that intelligently manages and scales capabilities across its architecture. ACG Research analyzed the business case for NCS and found that it achieves tremendous scale through the multi-chassis system architecture, the density and performance of its new chipset, and the extension of the control plane to virtual machines (VMs) externally. Fully virtualized software improves service velocity and asset utilization by creating a cloud model within the platforms. Virtualization also supports orders of magnitude improvements in system availability and security through isolation and independence from software operations.
