Unlock the power of the evolved mobile Internet.


Cisco 5G

Service Providers will differentiate themselves by the connected experiences and the cloud services that they enable for their clients.  Cisco is taking a Cloud-to-Client approach, unifying multi-vendor solutions into a single, standards-based architecture.  Because we do service enablement, the services themselves, the 5G core, the IP core, the cloud, etc. – we can truly optimize across the entire service layer.  This delivers traffic engineering for bandwidth management, network control for your applications, flexible network topology support for interactive service assurance, and much more.

Our 5G enabling solutions include the following:

  • Cisco Ultra Services Platform: Our cloud-native next generation mobile packet core provides a unified platform for service enablement using a distributed architecture that can extend functions and services as needed, where needed – all the way to the network edge. This is a converged core platform that now supports 5G radio along with the 3G/4G, Wi-Fi and IoT access types (i.e. CAT-M1, NB-IoT, etc.)
  • Cisco Policy Suite: This is part of Cisco Ultra Services Platform, but can also stand alone.  This cloud-native solution includes a microservices-based control plane framework.  Cisco Policy Suite has been expand to support the entire 5G/4G/3G scope.  Cisco Policy includes the Network Slice Selection Function to enable Network Slicing over both 4G and 5G.
  • Cisco SON now supports 5G radio along with earlier generations of licensed access.  SONFlex is the industry’s first self-optimizing network solutions to support fast customizable SON APIs by service, user and even slice.
  • 5G means greater demands for mobile xHaul, and the new Cisco NCS 500 series Access Routers are designed from the ground up to meet and exceed 5G requirements.  The NCS 500 series has the greatest port density and throughput in its form-factor.  It also runs IOS XR, the industry’s most reliable, carrier-class routing OS.  With the NCS 500, you can now operate a single OS from the cell tower to the data center – providing greater simplicity in programmability and operations.  The NCS 500 supports Segment Routing to better deliver on SLAs.  This a low-power consumption router with Zero-touch Deployment for easy implementation.



Cisco sees 5G differently

Cisco sees 5G differently.

We see it as a better way to provide a connected experiences and services from the multi-cloud-to-client. See how together we can redefine the network and reimagine opportunities. “Cisco 5G Now!” makes this possible – now.

Ultra Services Platform


Our new software-defined mobility (SDM) framework is a transformational game-changer for mobile network operators. At its center is the Cisco Ultra Services Platform.

Ultra Internet of Things
Cisco Ultra Services Platform supports the 3GPP Cellular Internet of Things architecture, including support for licensed LPWA network access (such as CAT-M1 and NB-IoT) as well as traditional LTE devices (CAT-0, CAT-1). This helps you provide connectivity for IoT devices requiring low power consumption, long range, low cost, and security.

Evolved Packet Core

Meeting growing mobile customer and network demands

Mobile operators around the world are seeing tremendous growth in mobile data subscribers and bandwidth usage. With the widespread popularity of IP-enabled devices, it’s essential to move toward a next-generation network with more capacity and embedded intelligence. Integrate heterogeneous access, core network, and cloud resources, both physical and virtual, across multi-vendor networks. Save money, move faster, and secure your network.
