Introducing the Expanded ASR 9000 System for Mobile Networks

Just two months ago, we introduced the ASR 9000 System, a 96 Tbps system featuring our new Network Virtualization Technology that allows Service Providers to simplify operations while improving service delivery.  The system, with its multi-dimensional scalability, increased service velocity and carrier-class reliability, has been a huge success with service providers.

And now we’re further delivering on the promise of our Next-Generation Internet strategy by expanding the ASR 9000 System to bring these benefits to the mobile network with three new platforms. Read More »

Introducing Cisco’s Unified RAN Backhaul ASR Extension: Triple your performance, halve your operating cost

The “information superhighway” metaphor is more appropriate than ever for mobile networks today. There are increasingly more and different types of traffic, drivers, and vehicles. And the focus on speed, cost, and efficiency in mobile backhaul is akin to moving more cars through freeway on-ramps and exits faster and with less overhead.

As outlined by Cisco’s Next-Generation Internet architecture, Cisco is working to optimize the service provider roadway with innovative and cost-effective solutions like the new ASR 9000 System.  And just as a better car can offer an improved experience, better safety, and more miles-per-gallon, Cisco’s Unified RAN Backhaul solution provides greater performance, reliability, scale, and power efficiency.

Getting a Zettabyte to 15 Billion Devices with Cisco nV Technology

According to Cisco’s Visual Networking Index, network operators will deliver upwards of a zettabyte (1021 bytes) of data to 15 billion fixed and mobile devices by 2015. That will be the challenge of the Next-Generation Internet.

To meet that challenge, service providers will need networks that meet the following requirements:

  • Support for mobile, business and residential services over a converged infrastructure
  • Unprecedented scale and density
  • High service availability
  • Increased service velocity
  • Reduced network complexity Read More »
