Challenge:  Meeting Growing Mobile Customer and Network Demands

Mobile operators around the world are seeing tremendous growth in mobile data subscribers and corresponding bandwidth usage. The widespread popularity of IP-enabled smartphones, netbooks, e-readers, tablets, and other devices is fueling this growth.

According to the Cisco 2015 Mobile Visual Networking Index (VNI), global mobile data traffic grew 69 percent in 2014. Global mobile data traffic reached 2.5 exabytes per month at the end of 2014, up from 1.5 exabytes per month at the end of 2013.

Monetize New Mobile Solutions Faster to Increase Time to Market

Move to a next-generation network with more capacity and embedded intelligence. We can help you migrate network services smoothly while controlling costs and mitigating risk. Integrate heterogeneous access, core network, and cloud resources, both physical and virtual, across multi-vendor networks


Why Cisco

Today, there are more than 350 global service providers in more than 75 countries running the Cisco StarOS Software Platform on the Cisco ASR 5000 Series. This Cisco technology provides the elasticity and inter-chassis virtualization necessary to meet the dynamic and ever-evolving demands of the mobile Internet.


More than 70 operators across the world are rolling out LTE service based on the ASR 5000 Series platform. It is a demonstration of the industry’s fast adoption to LTE and the trust operators have built in Cisco to help them migrate there.

 Virtualized Packet Core

Capture untapped revenue opportunities, particularly with the proliferation of Internet of Everything (IoE) and machine-to-machine (M2M) connections. As one of the industry's first commercial virtualized evolved packet cores, the Cisco Virtualized Packet Core (VPC) solution redefines the paradigm of agility for service providers.

Cisco VPC combines all packet core services—for 4G, 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, and small cell networks—into a single solution. It provides those network functions as virtualized services, so you can scale capacity and introduce new services much faster and more cost-effectively.

Cisco Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud Connect

Service providers want and need new ways to grow revenue sales. With potentially 40 billion new devices coming onto mobile operators’ networks by 2020, operators must develop new business models. They will need to create network scalability to accommodate the additional mobile data traffic, smart portable devices, and things coming onto their networks.

As mobile devices proliferate, so do opportunities to strengthen relationships with customers by delivering superior subscriber experiences.

Cisco IoT Cloud Connect is our new mobility-cloud-based software suite that offers a complete solution for mobile operators to deliver the IoT. Cisco IoT Cloud Connect addresses service provider concerns by helping you find new monetization opportunities and optimize networks for the fullest utilization.

Cisco provides granular, real-time visibility and updates across every level of the network—transport and user, access, core, and cloud. To learn more about Cisco IoT Cloud Connect Hosted Platform read the At-a-Glance.
