So great news! A couple hours ago, the LTE Asia Organizers tweeted:


Congrats to our ‪#LTEAsia award winners: Best LTE Core Network Product ‪@Cisco

Our Cisco ASR 5000 Series has been chosen the winner of the LTE Asia Best Core Product in the 1st Annual LTE Asia Event. Our ASR5000 Series is the market’s most comprehensive Mobile Packet Core solution. At the heart of our Packet Core Solution is our StarOS Software which can run on our purpose built hardware platform the Cisco Aggregation Services Router (ASR) 5000 Series or on this same StarOS version can run in a virtual mode Cisco Quantum Virtualized Packet Core (Quantum vPC) on an x86 server and is totally hypervisor independent. StarOS’ modular software services all of the 3GPP and other standards for mobile connectivity with SGSN/GGSN/MME/Packet Core functions. StarOS Software was designed with virtualization in mind since day one through intra-chassis virtualization and now by decoupling the software from the hardware, we are allowing customers


To move or migrate to a blade server platform, saving investment dollars and consolidating on a standardized server platform.

We want to thank the LTE Asia Awards judges, Informa and Telecom.com the event organizers, and all of the great Cisco employees that work so hard to make this product number 1. If you are coming to the Informa’s LTE Asia Event or you are in the neighborhood, stop by and say hello.
