Recently, T-Mobile, a leader among telecommunication operators in the Czech Republic has selected the Cisco ASR 5000 Series as a platform to manage its mobile data traffic from the new LTE-network and existing networks of 2G and 3G. The decision will be implemented later this year which will allow T-Mobile to optimize the transmission of video and offer their customers a wider range of multimedia services.
By having a single comprehensive platform and control for all network traffic, the operator will not only able to increase the speed and connectivity of the network, but also to offer innovative services, thus extending the capabilities of the final user, which, in turn, will allow T-Mobile further monetize their network.
As Cisco ASR 5000 Series covers all of the mobile network, this robust multimedia services platform provides a new level of analysis of network and customer base, which is crucial for providing personalized mobile services in real time. By combining different functions in a single carrier-class platform, such as the Cisco ASR 5000 Series, T-Mobile will be able to reduce the cost of transmitting signals, distribute session management and take full advantage of all the tools and network management capabilities from a user perspective. As the demand for network resources, network architecture is the next generation of Cisco (Cisco Next-Generation Network) and ASR 5000 platform will enable T-Mobile to increase network performance.
According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index(VNI): Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast for 2012 to 2017 study, in the next five years, the global amount of data transmitted over mobile networks will increase by 13 times and will be 134 exabytes per year. The rapid increase in mobile data traffic caused by, among other things, the progressive rate of spread of mobile Internet devices (in 2017 their number will exceed 10 billion). At the same time, 66% of mobile data traffic will come from video. As a result the demand for high-speed Internet connection will increased.
“Selecting the Cisco ASR 5000 platform due to its high reliability and quality, which is extremely important for our network. In addition, due to the capacity of the solutions, we can now offer our customers the fastest Internet connection,” says Vlado Klein, CTO of T-Mobile in the Czech Republic.
