Dutch service provider KPN selects Cisco multi-chassis carrier routing solution

Cisco announced that Dutch service provider KPN will deploy
Cisco CRS-3 multi-chassis carrier routing system, at the heart of KPN’s
Internet peering network.

The CRS-3 solution will transport all of KPN’s IP traffic to
the Internet as part of KPN’s Internet Cluster Environment (ICE), supporting
future consolidation and streamlining the network and services without the need
for extra system upgrades.

“With the explosion in bandwidth requirements,
providers now require higher network quality at an effective price point, and
the CRS-3 is an ideal fit for companies such as KPN. The CRS-3 has the highest
quality of experience for the lowest total cost of ownership on the market, in
one complete end-to-end solution,” said Michiel Panders, commercial
director, Service Providers, Cisco.

KPN’s focus
for future expansion is based on the demand for video over the Internet and
ensuring that its network can support these requirements. All of KPN’s Internet
traffic will go through two core locations  – the deployment of Cisco CRS-3
covers as the replacement, and upgrade of network capacity until 2020.

Cisco predicts that by 2015, the number of network-connected
devices will be more than 15 billion — twice the world’s population — and the
total amount of global Internet traffic will quadruple, reaching 966 Exabyte
per year.

The multi-chassis Cisco CRS-3 provides industry-leading
efficiency, requiring low power, cooling, and rack-space use for intelligent,
service-rich bandwidth capacity. Providing industry-leading performance, the
Cisco CRS-3 solution provides three times the scale and speed of the CRS-1, as
well as twice the service intelligence in handling core and data centre

With this deployment KPN benefits from significant
environmental and cost savings, with a lower cost of gigabits per second
(Gbps), using considerably less power than competitor solutions.

CRS-3 also offers 13 times the capacity of its nearest
competitor (up to 322 Tbps). The multi-chassis provides a future-proof solution
for KPN, enabling nearly unlimited network growth, and supporting the continued
growth on Internet traffic in the years to come.

Recently, Cisco announced that Bell Mobility selected the
Cisco ASR 5000 Series Mobile multimedia core platform to offer 4G and LTE
mobile services in its next-generation wireless network.
