TCO Benefits of Converged 5G Ready IP Transport
ACG’s paper presents the results of a TCO analysis comparing the economics of a converged IP/MPLS transport network with more traditional dedicated networks. The results of the analysis demonstrate significant savings with an overall TCO savings. of 62%, capital expense savings of 60%, and operations expense savings of 66%. The analysis asserts the financial advantages of a converged future mode of operation and elaborates on the benefits of the higher price performance of Cisco’s 5G ready routing portfolio and the benefits of segment routing, network programmability and automation.
