To address its increasing traffic growth on its fixed and wireless networks, Telstra recently announced it will utilize the Cisco NCS 6000 platform in its network. Driving this need—which is not limited to Telstra—is the growing demand for cloud services, video and media services. Service providers are looking for cost-efficient solutions that address this growth as well as solutions that scale for the Internet of Everything and M2M networks.
Why the Cisco NCS 6000? Although other products enable intelligence on the network, Cisco differentiates by offering a solution that gives providers a programmable and intelligent network. The NCS 6000 has 1 TB/s per slot line cards with 10 port 100GE line, offering high density that can decrease the per unit cost for data transported, which results in a smaller/lower carbon footprint. This unit decrease further supports Telstra’s “green goal” of reducing its carbon footprint.
When looking to build a converged network, it makes sense that Telstra would turn to Cisco, its trusted partner. The company has been using Cisco’s products in the core and is also a strategic partner for new cloud services. The NCS 6000 will provide Telstra with a platform to build an intelligent network that dynamically enables new products and services within the network.
