In my 15 years with Cisco, our company has never been more focused on innovation in our core business.
This renewed focus continues to pay off: Cisco has gained core routing market share in five straight quarters and edge routing market share three quarters in a row.
ACG’s 3Q11 market share report was just released, and Cisco remains No. 1 in the edge and core routing segments: Cisco gained 3.4 percent share in edge routing and 2.5 percent share in core routing (3.3 percent overall), quarter over quarter.
Backed by Cisco’s flagship core and edge routing platforms – the CRS-3 and ASR families – service providers around the world such as Charter Communication, China Telecom, Comcast, Cox Communications, Fastweb, NTT Plala and Tata Communications are building out the next-generation Internet and delivering innovative new services and experiences to their customers.
In addition to our market momentum, Cisco’s innovation engine is in high gear, with new breakthroughs such as nV (network virtualization) technology. Cisco nV intelligently blends the network edge, aggregation and access layers into a single ASR 9000 system, to deliver up to 70 percent operational expense savings, increase network capacity to an industry-leading 96 Tbps and accelerate IPv6 services.
Technologies like this are critical to delivering superior network capacity and a simpler way for our customers to enable the “Zettabyte Era.” Consider that the total amount of global Internet traffic will quadruple by 2015 and reach 966 exabytes per year according to our research. The projected increase of Internet traffic between 2014 and 2015 alone is 200 exabytes, which is greater than the total amount of Internet Protocol traffic generated globally in 2010.
We want to thank our customers around the world for their commitment to advancing the next-generation Internet.

I just got back from Carrier Ethernet World Congress 2011 in Amsterdam and it provided a great opportunity to meet many of our service provider customers from around the world. It also proved to be an ideal forum to share experiences as well as visions for the communications industry between different vendors and network operators. For the Cisco team, one of the highlights of the event was winning the “IIR Carrier Ethernet Vendor Award EMEA” in the “Best Carrier Ethernet Aggregation Product” category with the Cisco ASR 9000 System. Now deployed with over 750 customers worldwide, this was another great endorsement of our Carrier Ethernet strategy and the cost benefits associated with Cisco Network Virtualization (nV) technology.

According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index, global mobile traffic will increase 26 times to 6.3 exabytes per month by 2015. With demand for more mobile data services and increasing innovations in mobile devices, the need for network operators to move to an IP backhaul is becoming more apparent. The key for mobile network service providers is the focus on speed, cost, and efficiency in mobile backhaul. We’d like to hear what you think would be some possible challenges and solutions! So please join us for a #CiscoSPChat Tweetchat this Thursday!

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.

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 »
