T-Mobile Czech Republic to Deploy Cisco ASR 5000 Series Platform

T-Mobile Czech Republic, in support of its latest batch of network upgrades, recently selected the Cisco ASR 5000 Series to manage mobile traffic from its new LTE network, along with its existing 2G and 3G networks. Scheduled to be implemented this year, the ASR 5000 routing platform will enable T-Mobile to optimize video transmissions on its network, while offering subscribers an expanded range of multimedia services.

Furthermore, a single unified platform that handles oversight and management of all network traffic will allow T-Mobile to enhance overall network speed and connectivity in the country.

T-Mobile Czech Republic has been steadily rolling out network improvements all throughout 2013. In February, for example, the provider turned to Mavenir Systems for converged IMS core and Application Servers in support of services such as VoLTE. In March, T-Mobile Czech Republic selected Ontology Systems to collect, align and consolidate transmission network data from multiple sources into Amdocs' OSS network inventory management system.

"T-Mobile chose the Cisco ASR 5000 because of its high reliability and quality, which are absolutely necessary and essential for our network," said Vlado Klein, chief technology officer of T-Mobile Czech Republic. "The solution also helps ensure sufficient capacity to provide the fastest mobile Internet to our customers now and in the future."

The Cisco ASR 5000 Series is designed to handle the complex nature of the modern mobile network and it offers a new level of network and customer intelligence crucial for the delivery of personalized, real-time mobile services. By combining multiple functions with this platform, T-Mobile will be able to reduce signaling overhead, distribute session management and take full advantage of the network's control and user plane capabilities.

Best of all, the ASR 5000 supports growth, enabling T-Mobile to multiply network capacity as demand rises. Considering the growth expected for worldwide data use over the next five years — Cisco's estimates suggest mobile data traffic will increase 13 times within that time span — this is perhaps the ASR 5000's most important feature.
