Fully Managed Network Solution
Finally, there is a use case that allows for the business to simply let someone else, such as Cisco or a Cisco Partner, manage the network as a fully managed solution. This provides the flexibility to not only have the network managed as a whole for the business, but also to allow the business to have control over the policy and reporting portion of the managed service. This is becoming a more attractive option for customers who want to move to an OpEx model. This allows them to pay for their network on a subscription basis versus the traditional CapEx model and is analogous to paying an electric or cell phone bill. The consumption models available today are really opening up new options for customers.
