Cisco Evolved Programmable Network (EPN) Manager is an EMS/NMS solution that provides simplified, converged multilayer management of carrier-grade networks of all sizes. It starts with Carrier Ethernet and optical transport networks today and plans to expand into other technologies. Service providers can quickly respond to major market transitions, including video traffic growth, new business models caused by over-the-top (OTT) entrants, and converged networks driven by operating expense (OpEx) pressures.
Cisco EPN Manager enables end-to-end lifecycle management across device management, network provisioning, and network assurance. Consistent workflows across optical and metro network scenarios help increase operational efficiencies through automation and reduce operating expenses through lower training requirements. A model-driven architecture with content decoupled from the platform greatly improves agility in content pack delivery. It is a flexible, easy-to-deploy solution with a common inventory/data model and visually appealing user interface that provides a single product experience across management functions.
