Welcome to the Cisco Support Community Ask the Expert conversation. This is an opportunity to ask questions and learn about Cisco Medianet solutions and architecture with Cisco Experts Michael O'Brien and Eric Yu. A medianet is a network optimized for rich media. Cisco's Medianet architecture is an end-to-end IP architecture that enables pervasive and quality rich media experiences. The medianet architecture offered by Cisco integrates a smarter network with smarter endpoints to simplify the deployment and operation of various media and applications, and to enhance the quality of experience. Working together, the architecture components provide adaptation, integration, and automation to scale visibility and policy from endpoints across the network.

  • Smarter network: Medianet technology embedded into routers and switches makes the network media - and application-aware.
  • Smarter endpoints: Medianet technology embedded into endpoints enables endpoints to become network aware and utilize intelligent network services.
  • Shared media services: Shared network resources and capabilities that enrich media experiences.
