Cisco ASR 5000 Series

Cisco ASR 5000 Multimedia Core Platform Network Functions

Integrate Functions for Easy Management

By helping to enable appropriate software features, the Cisco ASR 5000 Series platform can support one or more network functions in a single system. A single platform with multiple integrated functions is more cost-effective and easier to manage than deploying several single-purpose access gateways.

Deliver Service Across a Range of Networks

The Cisco ASR 5000 multimedia core platform is designed to fulfill many network functions. You can deliver multimedia services across a range of network architectures to meet subscriber demand for a rich mobile broadband environment.

Integrate and Upgrade to Reduce Costs

Because ASR 5000 helps you integrate one or more of these functions onto a single carrier-class platform, you can:

  • Reduce signaling overhead
  • Distribute session management
  • Use the control and user plane capabilities of the carrier-class node

The Cisco ASR 5000 multimedia core platform and network functions deliver superior performance in the existing network. At the same time, they are easily upgraded to Long Term Evolution (LTE) requirements, including new network functions designed to:

  • Reduce capital and operational expenditures
  • Improve the subscriber experience
