The service will also enable service providers including 3 Scandinavia to better manage, enhance and take advantage of the rapidly growing volume of mobile data traffic.

3 Scandinavia’s fastest-growing business segments are new services, such as mobile Internet, mobile video chat and mobile video downloads for consumer and business customers.

The Cisco ASR 9000 Series will enable 3 Scandinavia to offer new mobile services as well as enable mobile backhaul, and allow providers to make the transition easily to Ipv6.

Cisco notes that IPv6 deployment will meet the current and future demand for globally unique IP addresses, with the proliferation of mobile Internet devices such as tablets, smart phones and wireless connected laptops.

Forecasting that by 2015, the number of network-connected devices will be more than 15 billion, and the total amount of global Internet traffic will quadruple, reaching 966 exabytes per year, Cisco notes that mobile video traffic will more than double every year between 2010 and 2015.

According to the Cisco visual networking index (VNI) global mobile data traffic forecast for 2010 to 2015, two-thirds of the world’s mobile data traffic will be video by 2015.
