Product Overview

Cisco ® announces the availability of the Cisco Content Services Gateway 2 (CSG2). This next-generation content services gateway delivers best-in-class content-aware billing, content filtering, service control, traffic analysis, and data mining in a highly scalable, fault-tolerant package.
The Cisco CSG2 is part of the Cisco Service Exchange Framework for Mobile (Mobile SEF), an open platform that can readily interface to all the control elements in a mobile network, including multiple RANs, back-end billing systems, and content-filtering and compression solutions. Mobile operators can install and deploy Cisco Mobile SEF solutions without disrupting any services.
The Cisco CSG2 is an application deployed on the Cisco Service and Application Module for IP, which provides high-performance, scalable, distributed service processing for the Cisco 7600 Series Routers.
