New mobile devices are emerging every day, from tablets and smartphones to smartcars. With these new devices come new applications and services, and widely varying traffic patterns. The Cisco ASR 5000 Series combine massive performance and scale with flexibility, virtualization, and intelligence - so network resources are available exactly when they are needed.
Whereas today´s traffic patterns are somewhat predictable, emerging mobile applications and services vary in their signaling, throughput, sessions, and density. All capabilities of the ASR 5000 Series were developed to address the anticipated increase in performance requirements that the next generation of the mobile Internet will bring.
The two platforms of the Cisco ASR 5000 Series, the ASR 5000 and the ASR 5500, meet performance challenges in a simple and cost-effective manner. They give operators the capability to amplify network performance, grow revenue, and reduce costs.
Cisco´s virtualized StarOS software architecture spans both platforms in the ASR 5000 Series, enabling enormous flexibility and dynamic resource allocation for mobile services and networks. This virtualized OS provides:
StarOS prepares operators to address the "new normal" head on with intelligent performance and the right resources - elastic, flexible, and virtual.
