Shanghai Cable Network Co. Ltd (SCN) announced today it has selected Cisco Systems end-to-end networking solution to create a more reliable, cost-effective, flexible, and scalable network infrastructure.
When completed its network will allow SCN to expand its broadband service offerings from simple cable access to a suite of integrated next generation IP services including multimedia broadcasting, high-speed Internet access, digital television, videoconferencing, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), and long-distance education for both residential and commercial customers.
The Cisco solution extends from the metro, to the backbone, to the edge enabling consistent application of Quality of Services (QoS), high availability, and security polices. SCN selected Cisco 12000 Series routers for the core, Cisco ONS 15454s for optical transmission, and Cisco Catalyst6509 and Catalyst 4507 switches for the aggregation layer. At the network edge, SCN selected the Cisco 10000 to aggregate Ethernet customers, and Cisco uBR10012 and 7246VXR cable modem termination systems (CMTS) to aggregate cable broadband traffic.
