Russian Service Provider Doubles Down on Cisco ASR Family
MegaFon, one of Russia’s leading telecommunications service providers, is into Cisco’s ASR family in a big way.
Just weeks ago, MegaFon announced that it had deployed Cisco’s ASR 9000 series edge routers as the primary routing platform in its network backbone. Today came the announcement that MegaFon has installed the Cisco ASR 5000 mobile multimedia core platform in its central region mobile network.
Oh, by the way, MegaFon has also deployed Cisco’s CRS core routing platform to help serve its 56 million subscribers . . .
But, I digress. Back to today’s announcement . . .
The high performance and advanced intelligence of the Cisco ASR 5000 will enable MegaFon to serve more customers more reliably, while delivering enhanced mobile services such as data and mobile video.
And, with the integrated network and subscriber intelligence capabilities of the ASR 5000, MegaFon will be able to develop and deliver advanced mobile services with high levels of customization and personalization.
The Cisco ASR 5000 was featured in Cisco’s recently announced MOVE (Monetization, Optimization, Videoscape Experience) strategy, designed to help mobile operators like MegaFon monetize their networks through new services and business models, while optimizing delivery of those services for a differentiated, enhanced mobile video experience.
