Cisco has showcased three networking products architected and designed in India.
Aggregation Services Router (ASR), Cisco 800M Integrated Services Router (ISR) and Multilayer Director Switch (MDS) 9250i are the three products.
Cisco ASR, a converged access platform for delivering wireline and wireless services, is optimized for mobile backhaul, residential and business service applications.
The Cisco 800M ISR router designed for wireless wide-area networks (WAN) deployments provides connectivity over both GSM and CDMA technologies, making the router ideal for micro-branches, remote offices of large enterprises or government services across the country.
The ISR 800M, which is 4G compatible, is one of Cisco’s first routers to provide an open, extensible environment for developing and hosting applications at the network edge for local processing right in the router.
The Multilayer Director Switch (MDS) 9250i is Cisco’s Storage Area Networking (SAN) services switch. Cisco will be targeting large and small companies which require better connectivity, application uptime, reliability, disaster recovery and data backup capabilities.
Amit Phadnis, president, Engineering and India Site Leader, said: “Cisco’s belief is that the innovative application of technology can have a positive impact on India’s competitiveness, diversification of its industry base, its ability to create jobs and improve quality of life for its citizens.”
Cisco Visual Networking Index 2013 – 2018 says India will have 526 million Internet users and 1.5 billion networked devices by 2018. Video will be 62 percent of India’s mobile data traffic. The three products demonstrate the company’s ability to create products and solutions for the next generation of communications technologies.
