The Cisco Evolved Programmable Network (EPN) Manager is a simplified and cost-effective device operation,
administration, network provisioning, and network assurance management solution for today?s converging packet
and optical multilayer networks. This all-in-one, next-generation product provides device management, network
provisioning, and network assurance across core, edge, aggregation, and access networks. EPN Manager
provides end-to-end network management of Carrier Ethernet, optical transport, and circuit emulation over packet
networks. Built on a model-based architecture with content decoupled from the platform, it greatly improves agility
in content delivery by using a common inventory and data model.
