ITU Telecom World (ITU) 2009 will highlight a variety of announcements that showcase the continued momentum of the Cisco IP Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) architecture and its technology innovation.

The Cisco IP NGN helps enable service providers to deliver differentiated 'Connected Life' experiences to their residential and business customers by integrating voice, video, data and mobility to create unique "any-play" service offerings, at home, at work or on the move.


The ability to deliver these personalized experiences anywhere, anytime, and to virtually any device, creates a host of new 'Connected Life' opportunities for accelerated service provider growth and enhanced customer satisfaction.
