Well I told you that we would be back real soon with another update and here you go. As you remember we recently blogged that ACG Research again confirmed that Cisco continues to be the leading provider of Mobile Packet Core and Mobile IP Infrastructure over the past several quarters.
Now another analyst firm, IHS Infonetics Research highlights that Cisco has indeed increased our Mobile Packet Core in Lead to 24.9%, an increase of +4.5% points from Q1 2015 based on EPC / 3G Packet Core data in their report “Mobile Infrastructure Equipment” for Q2 2015. That is three consecutive quarters in a row that IHS Infonetics Data has shown that Cisco has increased our market share for the Mobile Packet Core.
So where is this customer momentum coming from you ask? Well we have recently seen customers using our Packet Core for:
AT&T Connected Car: Launched their Connected Car Service with Cisco at MWC 2015 and now has more than 6M vehicles.
Verizon: one of the largest 4G Service Providers is quickly looking to launch a 5G Service and leverage it’s Packet Core to give them Any G.
XL Axiata: who announced their Virtualized Packet Core (VPC) and launched their 4G Service in July and plans to have 10M 4G customers by 2016.
So it has been a great Summer 2015 as well as a great last several quarters for Cisco Mobility as we continue to build momentum in the Packet Core, as well as Cisco continues leadership roles in the Service Provider Universal Wi-Fi and Small Cells, Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) with our Evolved Packet Data Gateway (ePDG), and growing quickly in Service Provider Policy Suite. So lot’s of momentum continues to build thanks to the teams focus on quality and working with the customers on their mobile requirements.
