Mobile network infrastructures are quickly evolving as mobile operators expand beyond voice to bring high-speed services available from IP networks and the Internet to subscribers. The result is the emergence of networks that are becoming mobile versions of the high-speed Internet or a “mobile Internet”. As the leader in IP networking, Cisco is uniquely positioned to help mobile operators deliver what some analysts predict will be a 100 fold increase in mobile data traffic by 2013.
One of the key areas in mobile networks is the Radio Access Network (RAN). Mobile operators must dramatically reduce the cost per bit in their current backhaul solutions while providing transport for third generation (3G) technologies, the next wave of Long Term Evolution (LTE) technologies, and traditional technologies. The move to the all-IP RAN is the single largest infrastructure challenge facing mobile operators.
A group of folks at Cisco from around the world got together using Collaboration 2.0 tools, like Webex Connect, and have written a paper which explores the strategy recommended by Cisco for mobile operators to implement an IP RAN backhaul network that allows decoupling from the radio technology as they migrate to an all-IP RAN.
Today I was studying the seamless MPLS approach from this page:https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/multiprotocol-label-switching-mpls/mpls/116127-configure-technology-00.html But there is a point where I really struggle.See the picture below.H...
Quick Question please, In MPLS network with VRFs, there are two labels on the packet, one is the MP-BGP label and the other is LDP label. Does the MP-BGP label have EXP bit? Or it's only on the LDP label? Thank you
Having an issue where the amount of radius sessions are not in sync with the BNG sessions. We use IPoE for authentication, so any COAs that need to sent from radius to the bng need to be known by radius and that is where the issue lies. ...
I'm reviewing our hardware for replacement planning, and have most of the EoS dates, except for the following:ASR-9001A9K-MPA-20X1GEA9K-MPA-4X10GEA9K-MPA-8X10GE Any info or references are appreciated. Thanks,Phil
