Building the internet for the future
At the Voice&Data Telecom Leadership Forum (TLF) 2020, Cisco Systems Asia Pacific and Japan, and Service Provider Business President Sanjay Kaul presented on ‘building the internet for the future.’

He said that we are at the cusp of something great happening in the industry. The future of the internet and 5G are seeing new normal, new participants, new potentials, partnerships and business models. Today, sensors, cameras, machines, etc., are connected to everything.

In India, there will be 600 million people online via mobile by the end of 2020. 20% of GDP growth will be contributed by digitization. 10-15X impact of digitization will be powered by IoT, 5G and Wi-Fi 6. TSPs have to look at reducing costs, create new revenues, improve experiences and time to service. We have to increase trust and security.

Cisco started a project on the future of the internet. It also introduced a silicon. Innovation across multiple dimensions can shift the paradigm. There will be new possible network architectures that are converged, cloud enhanced and fabric based. The future internet will be delivering unprecedented cost and power efficiency, prioritized operations, and augmented intelligence.

He said: “We need to adapt how the consumers want to procure. There will be integrated systems. Discrete components will rise. We have the architecture re-imagined as the SP North Star. The SP will be a predominant channel for cloud-based services. There will be a flat network, i.e., an IPoEoF, that is converged, intelligent, zero touch and zero trust. There will be a horizontal cloud layer. There will be distributed data center architecture—MEC and new edge. There will also be converged SDN and automation.

“There will be a platform for service innovation. All services will be IP over Ethernet over fiber (IPoEoF), with subscriber experience to the cloud. This enables service agility and increased productivity. There will be new user experiences and digital value plays. There will also be new business models and transformation.”
