Reach for Today's Opportunities and Plan for Tomorrow

Our new software-defined mobility (SDM) framework is a transformational game-changer for mobile network operators (MNOs). At the center of our SDM is the Cisco Ultra Services Platform. It can enable MNOs to get new services to market faster, reduce costs, and achieve the service agility necessary to compete with cloud providers.

It transforms:

  • Mobile networks into a mobile cloud
  • Function virtualization into service automation
  • A centralized architecture into a distributed, scalable, applications cloud

The Ultra Services Platform takes full advantage of Cisco's strengths in IP, cloud, and virtualization to transform an MNO's business and architecture, as well as the overall user experience.

Cisco is reinventing the Evolved Packet Core, GiLAN, and service enablement to reduce cost, provide webscale and bring new services to market in minutes. Our Ultra Services Platform can enable mobile operators to create and deliver customized private networks for:

  • The enterprise
  • Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO)
  • The Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Special events
  • Consumers

Cisco Ultra IoT

Cisco Ultra Services Platform has new capabilities for IoT in support of the 3GPP Cellular IoT (CIoT) architecture, including licensed LPWA network access (i.e., CAT-M1 and NB-IoT). This allows Operators to provide connectivity for IoT devices requiring low power consumption, long range, low cost and security.

Cisco Ultra IoT evolves the Ultra Services Platform to bring these new features for IoT including:

  • Cisco CIoT Serving Gateway Node (CSGN), which terminates access types with uniform identity, authentication, and security, with deployment flexibility and dynamic scalability that leverages Cisco leadership in Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
  • Cisco enhanced Service Capability Exposure Function (eSCEF), which includes standardized APIs to expose network capabilities to applications for new Operator monetization opportunities.

Cisco Ultra M Platform

Ultra M is an easy-to-use virtualization platform from Cisco designed to simplify the deployment of mobile core virtual network functions (VNFs). The solution combines Cisco Ultra Gateway Applications with a Cisco Validated OpenStack infrastructure to give mobile operators the confidence to start deploying services quickly. This virtualization platform can then be upgraded to the Ultra Services Platform, our next generation for cloud mobile services.
