For Service Providers, the Route(r) Leads to Cisco

Service providers across the globe depend on Cisco routing solutions to support new services, answer the challenge of tremendous video traffic growth, help generate additional revenue and enhance the end-user experience. 

Service providers such as Tiscali and NBC . . .

Tiscali, an Italian operator, will deploy the Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS), as well as the Cisco UCS blade system and the Cisco Nexus 5000 system for its data center upgrade.  

The project began in 2010 and has remarkably expanded Tiscali’s national network capacity.  The basic purpose is to develop important innovations on Tiscali’s IP backbone and cloud support services so it can differentiate itself by offering Software-as-a-Service and Infrastructure-as-a-Service.

As for NBC, it selected the Cisco ASR 9000 edge router to connect the video stream to the TV network for the broadcast of the William/Kate wedding to an estimated 2.3 billion people. 

In fact, check this video out . . .  fun stuff.
