T-Mobile (Czech) Picks Cisco's ASR
PRAGUE, Czech Republic -- Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced that leading Czech telecommunications operator T-Mobile has chosen the Cisco® ASR 5000 Series to manage its mobile data traffic from the new LTE network, together with existing 2G and 3G networks. The ASR 5000 routing platform will help enable T-Mobile to optimise video transmissions and offer customers a broader range of multimedia services. The solution will be implemented this year. With one unified platform providing oversight and management of all network traffic, the operator will be able to not only enhance network speed and connectivity, but also offer innovative services that enrich the end-user experience and, in turn, enable T-Mobile to further monetize its network. The Cisco ASR 5000 Series is purpose-built for the complexities of the mobile network. It is a robust multimedia services platform that brings a new level of network and customer intelligence that is critical for delivering real-time, personalized mobile services. By combining multiple functions into a single carrier-class platform like the Cisco ASR 5000 Series, T-Mobile can reduce signaling overhead, distribute session management, and take full advantage of the network's control and user plane capabilities. As network demand grows, the Cisco Next-Generation Network architecture and ASR 5000 will help enable T-Mobile to multiply network capacity. Cisco Systems Inc.
