SAN JOSE, California February 25, 2020 Today Cisco announced new mobility solutions aimed to help service providers drive revenue and profitability from their 5G infrastructure.

As 5G preparation takes over, service providers are facing pressures to transform their networks to accommodate the oncoming traffic growth. According to the Cisco Annual Internet Report, there will be nearly 30 billion connected devices by 2023, nearly half of those will be mobile. Global 5G connections will be more than 10 percent of these total mobile connections.

Service providers are focused on how to grow profitability and show return on investment from their network buildouts. Cisco is focused on delivering the critical foundation that begins where the radio ends, including the converged IP multi-haul' network, packet core and mobile/cloud-native core along with a horizontal layer of automation, trust and security.

The path to profitable 5G for service providers requires thoughtful choices on the mobile infrastructure with a cloud-native core, trustworthy IP network, and an open radio approach, said Jonathan Davidson, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cisco Service Provider Business. The ability to capitalize on 5G opportunities in the enterprise, IOT, data center and security domains is a game changer. Cisco is the innovation leader on mass-scale architectures and cross-domain solutions that enable service providers to grow revenue, reduce costs, and mitigate risk. We are focused on helping our customers navigate the path to profitable 5G and supporting those needs with financing options and flexible business models that make sense for today's global economy.

As the company continues working with its customers on 5G rollouts around the world, it has responded with unique additions to its portfolio featuring new software, hardware and flexible business models designed to support service providers' needs for the Internet for the Future.

The path to realizing the potential of 5G brings new technologies, software-centric deployment models, and revamped operational and business processes for mobile network operators to deliver new services to consumer and enterprise markets, said Heidi Adams, Executive Director, Network Infrastructure Research, Omdia. With Cisco's introduction of new high-performance router platforms for mobile transport, cloud-native enhancements to its mobile core portfolio, and unique funding and revenue sharing models, operators can more easily take advantage of what 5G has to offer.

What's new:

Introducing Cisco Cloud Services Stack for Mobility

To help reduce the headaches associated with integrating multi-vendor telco stacks of hardware, software and services capabilities, Cisco has designed a common foundation that allows for agility and growth at scale with minimal disruption. The new Cisco Cloud Services Stack for Mobility is a cloud-based mobile packet core solution that accelerates implementation of 4G and 5G mobility services, reduces integration costs and overall networking complexity. It offers a carrier-grade NFVI platform that is pre-integrated, pre-validated, and embedded with security, automation and assurance capabilities, running on Cisco UCS and Cisco Nexus fabric. It is deployed and supported through Cisco Customer Experience.

A critical element for accelerating 5G deployments is the need for the right skills and experience to address complex solution integrations, said Dave Malik, Cisco Fellow and Chief Architect, Cisco Customer Experience. The current climate of diverse technology stacks requires engineering expertise across multiple domains to drive seamless interoperability at scale. The Cisco Customer Experience team has the knowledge gained from working with global service providers to accelerate lifecycle management and large mobility deployments, helping customers speed time-to-value and capture market share.

Introducing Cisco Cloud Services Stack for Content Delivery

5G services will require lower latency and much more bandwidth. Cisco's Annual Internet Report shows that a 5G connection will generate up to three times more traffic than a 4G connection. For high bandwidth services like AR, VR and IoT services to thrive, it is best to be as close to the end user or edge as possible. Multi-access edge computing (MEC) enables service providers to create a service edge at the last mile of their networks enabling better experiences. These can be delivered to the enterprise as managed services, and help the enterprise offer new services to their end-customers including, AR, VR, content delivery, etc.

Cisco's new service edge solution, Cisco Cloud Services Stack for Content Delivery uses Cisco's validated cloud-native services stack with a dedicated cloud-native content delivery application t
