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!

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 »

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 »

There’s an interesting dynamic taking place in the Service Provider industry these days: The simplest devices are becoming more capable and complex. The simplest applications are becoming more specialized and personalized. And the networks that enable both are becoming more inefficient and ineffective.
I don’t want to come off sounding like Dana Carvey’s Grumpy Old Man, but I think I’m echoing many of my colleagues within Cisco and the Service Provider industry when I express a growing desire for simpler times.
Maybe not direct-connection, crank-phone, Pennsylvania 6-5000 simpler times – I’m no more willing to give up my iPhone or iPad than the rest of you – but it seems to me we need to rethink the way we design and build networks, develop and deploy services over those networks, and manage and maintain those networks to ensure those services consistently and continuously deliver the types of Internet experiences consumers demand, or rather, expect.
