Mobile Internet

Unlock the power of the evolved mobile Internet.


The paradigm of a mobile operator is shifting. Cloud, SDN, and NFV are making it easier for providers to introduce new services quickly at scale and with compelling economics. Architectures that simplify, automate, and virtualize can help create and deliver services securely and efficiently. And with 5G around the corner, you will need to consider having a 5G-ready network foundation in place.
Cisco’s Mobile Internet can help you:

  • Boost agility to capture new revenue opportunities
  • Improve operations and provide a better customer experience
  • Prepare for 5G, IoT, and beyond with a unified enablement platform that integrates heterogeneous access, transport, core, services with end-to-end automation, management, orchestration, and security – across multi-vendor environments.
  • Take advantage of cloud efficiencies through separate control and data planes and dynamically deliver customized services through network slicing

Cisco’s Open Network Architecture for service providers is a comprehensive framework to make networks more open, flexible, and programmable. This approach consists of three functional layers: physical and virtual infrastructure, network abstraction, and applications and cloud-based services that are tightly integrated with security, policy, and analytics. It also leverages telemetry and automation to deliver an optimized, high-quality user experience to customers and self-healing to the network.



Shifting focus to cloud and IP services

Cisco 5G Open Network Architecture integrates physical and virtual solutions into a unified network fabric through advanced automation and telemetry. This creates a platform that meets many 5G requirements, helping you pursue new business markets faster and more efficiently.

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.
