Cisco ASR 9000 Network and Service Management
Source: Cisco Systems
The ASR 9000 network and service management solution provides operational excellence using the Cisco IOS XR System Management Framework and an open, extensible Network Management System (NMS) and Operations Support System (OSS) Platform. This results in continuous systems operations and service flexibility to meet service provider requirements. The carrier-class Ethernet networks are evolving with the multitude of services using the same infrastructure. The need for dense Ethernet-Gigabit Ethernet- and 10 Gigabit Ethernet-based transports is led mainly by the convergence of services such as voice, video, high-speed data, and mobility on this Carrier Ethernet network. The Cisco IP Next-Generation Network (NGN) framework provides a flexible and scalable architecture to support this growth.
