Cisco will upgrade the Telefonica network through its Next-Generation Core & Edge Network Solution; Cisco's CRS-3 and ASR9000 Selected for International Network Upgrade

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN JOSE, Calif., 10 December 2012 -- Cisco today announced that Telefonica Global Solutions, part of the Telefonica Group, a leading global provider of telecommunication services for fixed and mobile carriers, ISPs and content providers, has selected Cisco for its enhanced Internet Protocol Next-Generation Network . The upgraded network will support new and future revenue generating services and help ensure that Telefnica has the capacity to meet the needs of its global customer base, including those in America, Asia and Europe. Integral to supporting this Internet growth will be the deployment of the Cisco CRS-3 and ASR 9000 Series routers for enhanced capacity, high resiliency, and robust IPv6 support.

Highlights/Key Facts Telefonica's network connects more than 100 locations in more than 60 cities and 40 countries connecting the main cities of Europe, Latin America, the United States and Asia.

With over 8,000 systems deployed and nearly 1,000 multi-chassis configurations, the Cisco CRS is the industry's most robust, scalable, widely deployed multi-chassis core router. Cisco's new elastic core solution capabilities allow it to seamlessly add a second chassis without the space and cost of a separate fabric chassis.

The Cisco CRS offers the possibility of future upgrading capacity for its core network with upto 400 Gbps per slot capability, high resiliency, and a cost-effective intelligent core solution to improve the return on investment for its core network.

The Cisco IP NGN solution is fully IPv6 compliant, helping to ensure that Telefonica is prepared to meet customer demand for IPv6-based services.

Both the Cisco CRS and ASR 9000 Series utilize the modular Cisco IOS XR software operating system, which is designed to simplify network operations and enable comprehensive system redundancy and network resiliency.

The Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) Forecast, 2011-201 6, projects that global Internet traffic will increase more than fourfold to more than a zettabyte by 2016. This amount is 100 exabytes higher than the projected level in 2013, or an increase the equivalent of 10 times all the traffic traversing IP networks in 2008.

Spokeperson Quotes Alejandro Martnez, VP of Telefonica Global Solutions, Global Network and Platforms: "Telefonica is committed to using the most innovative technology for all its services and products. As a global company with a network spanning Asia, Europe, and the Americas we're committed to leading the world in high speed infrastructure that will ultimately give our customers more choice, flexibility and innovation. This network expansion helps ensure that Telefonica can meet that commitment" states." Bill Gartner, vice president and general manager, high-end routing and optical group, Cisco: "Network operators around the globe see the need to prepare for the next-generation mobile Internet and facilitating an increasing demand for mobile video, collaboration, and broadband services. The Cisco CRS family is designed to grow such that it can operate for decades while providing best-in-class performance. Its 400 Gbps per slot multichassis scalable design provides a foundation for customers on which they can continue to expand. Telefonica can look forward to continued growth while lowering operational costs."

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
