IP Networks selects Cisco IP next-generation network architecture

Pseudowires over ethernet and native IP packets to be supported by Cisco 7600 Series routers

By CBR Staff Writer

IP Networks has selected a Cisco IP next-generation network architecture featuring the Cisco Mobile Transport over Packet system. This approach is expected to give IP Networks the scale, resiliency and efficiency needed to deliver incrementally increasing amounts of 3G and 4G mobile IP traffic for operators.

IP Networks will migrate its infrastructure to provide multi-homing carrier ethernet from the newly launched Cisco Mobile Wireless Router (MWR) 2941-DC located at the cell site and transport mobile traffic from several operators over a single, converged IP network. Mobile traffic from the cell site will be routed via the Cisco 7600 Series routers enabled to support both pseudowires over ethernet (PWE3) and native IP packets.

According to Cisco, the MToP system is able to support CDMA and GSM-based radio technologies and next-generation all-IP radios.

Gary George, president of IP Networks, said: We provide service level agreement-guaranteed IP radio access network transport using pseudowires over carrier ethernet and native IP. An important aspect in mobile transport networks is maintaining accurate synchronization signals to minimize interference among sites and to ensure optimal inter-cell handover performance. Cisco and Brilliant Telecommunications’s network timing solutions make that happen.
