Optimize the Radio Access Network

A radio access network helps mobile network operators meet the challenges of the increasing bandwidth demands of third-generation (3G) mobile applications. With a radio access network, operators can also support legacy services and reduce cost per bit.


Cisco offers a next-generation radio access network portfolio highlighted by Cisco Mobile Transport over Pseudowires (MToP) technology. Using Cisco Radio Access Network solutions, operators can:

  • Collapse all backhaul technologies onto a single IP/MPLS network
  • Easily scale services to one million triple-play subscribers and 2,700 mobile base stations
  • Rapidly provision bandwidth to support new services
  • Transparently support 2G, 3G, and 4G radio technologies
  • Take advantage of alternative transport media (such as Ethernet and DSL) for additional cost savings
  • Achieve carrier-class IP security

MToP in the RAN
Reduce capital and operational costs in the radio access network by delivering all services over a single IP/MPLS network.
