Cisco ASR 5500: Intelligent performance for the new normal

Mobile operators need a mobile packet core solution that they can count on - one that provides efficient evolution to 4G technology and small cells.

Operators must plan for the ‘new normal’ of the mobile internet - elastic, flexible, virtual. This means being able to harness the right resources (intelligent performance) when you need them - instantaneously.

This new normal starts with the intelligent performance of the Cisco ASR 5500 multimedia core platform, which sets a new standard for intelligent performance that redefines the economics of the packet core. The Cisco ASR 5500 is the first mobile platform designed for terabit performance that scales to tens of millions of sessions, and supports the transaction rates required to address the signaling surge.
