IBC 2010: Abertis Readying for the Video Surge
Another major announcement for Cisco at IBC was regarding Abertis Telecom and their deployment of our flagship edge router, the ASR 9000 Series. Abertis, a provider of transport to broadcasters and the broader telecom market in Spain, recognized not just the demands on their network that the wave of video will bring in the next few years – as you recall from our postings in June, the bandwidth wave will be a big one! – but they also realized the opportunity that wave, powered by new video services, brings to their business. To help enable them to meet the challenges and reap the opportunity, they chose Cisco and specifically the ASR 9000 Series router. We’re honored to have the opportunity to partner with them as they continue their leading role of bringing video to Spain.
