The Network as a Platform – for the Connected Life.

Cisco plays an ever-expanding role in helping service providers transform their networks into efficient next-generation platforms capable of delivering many services to many screens. By bringing together entertainment, information, communication and personalization, service providers are competing to capture new subscribers and gain more revenue from existing ones.

The emergence of the network as a platform is changing the entire value chain and placing the network squarely at the center of innovation. The explosion of devices will be fueled by more and more services and tasks being handled online, from phone calls to personalized searches to downloading videos, games and other forms of entertainment.

The role of the network is emerging as a secure platform for delivering the customized and personalized experience that 21st century users expect - whether that means delivering new services as a carrier, boosting productivity for businesses of any size or consumers looking for real-time, personalized entertainment and services.

Cisco is leading the transition to a network-centric technology environment. By combining its core strength (IP) with intelligence, the company is creating a powerful platform that will serve as the basis for the convergence of data, voice, video and mobile communications in a secure, integrated architecture.

OgilvyOne Worldwide

What has always defined Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide is its ability to build brands.

The difference is that building brands today requires a keen understanding of how new communications technology, new channels, and vibrant creativity combine. This is a world where the consumer is now in control, and consumer insight is paramount, and so the quality and diversity of our people are vital.

That mandate is integrated communications and our response, what we call 360 Degree Brand Stewardship® , means a willingness to use the broadest array of tools and techniques to understand, develop and enhance the relationship between a consumer and a brand.

We do this on both a local and a global scale. Local 360 Degree Brand Stewardship® keeps the agency fully rooted in the marketplace, attracting top local clients and the best people to work on them. This keeps our understanding of the local consumer and marketplace intimate.
