A Business Case for Scaling the Next-Generation Network with the Cisco ASR 9000 System: Now with Converged Services
Cisco’s nV technology when deployed across the edge, aggregation and access networks that supports residential, enterprise and mobile services.
Extending nV from the edge to access reduces total cost of ownership as compared to a leading competitor’s converged services solution. Integrated traffic analytics offer traffic generation and reporting capabilities without using an external platform. This saves service providers thousands of dollars per service turn-up. To support the massive growth in mobile devices nV technology is now topology agnostic and its latest addition provides support for both ring, and hub and spoke topologies. The nV architecture allows for effective scaling of converged services while maintaining operational simplicity.
ACG Research has developed a business case analysis for Cisco’s nV technology when deployed across the edge, aggregation and access networks that supports residential, enterprise and mobile services. The analysis captures the market’s evolutionary change in the access network from E1/T1 to Ethernet-based technology. The model addresses this change for backhaul of 2G, 3G, and 4G radio technologies and for enterprise Internet access and L3 VPN services.
