Cisco Technology Provides Intelligence for T-Mobile's LTE Network in Czech 
Cisco ASR 5000 Series at the Heart of Fourth-Generation Network 
PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/16/13 --  Cisco
(NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced that leading Czech telecommunications
operator T-Mobile has chosen the Cisco(R) ASR 5000 Series to manage
its mobile data traffic from the new LTE network, together with
existing 2G and 3G networks. The ASR 5000 routing platform will help
enable T-Mobile to optimise video transmissions and offer customers a
broader range of multimedia services. The solution will be
implemented this year. 
With one unified platform providing oversight and management of all
network traffic, the operator will be able to not only enhance
network speed and connectivity, but also offer innovative services
that enrich the end-user experience and, in turn, enable T-Mobile to
further monetize its network.  
The Cisco ASR 5000 Series is purpose-built for the complexities of
the mobile network. It is a robust multimedia services platform that
brings a new level of network and customer intelligence that is
critical for delivering real-time, personalized mobile services. By
combining multiple functions into a single carrier-class platform
like the Cisco ASR 5000 Series, T-Mobile can reduce signaling
overhead, distribute session management, and take full advantage of
the network's control and user plane capabilities. As network demand
grows, the Cisco Next-Generation Network architecture and ASR 5000
will help enable T-Mobile to multiply network capacity. 
According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) Global Mobile
Data Traffic Forecast for 2012 to 2017, the volume of mobile data
traffic will increase 13 times during the next five years and will
reach a total annual volume of 134 exabytes in 2017. This growth will
be caused by, amongst other factors, the expected rapid increase in
the number of mobile connected devices, of which there should be more
than 10 billion by 2017. According to the same study, by 2017, 66
percent of all mobile traffic will be video. All this leads to an
increased demand for mobile operators to provide fast internet
