New Data Centre Platform Gears Mobile Operator for Future
Source: Cisco Systems
The MTN Group Limited (MTN Group) is a multinational telecommunications group offering cellular network access and business solutions. The data centre performs a very important function for MTN SA, in that it houses all its business applications. The data centre did not support 10-Gigabit and deployment of servers took a long time. As a result, MTN SA experienced lengthy provisioning delays when deploying new applications or subscriber services. MTN SA chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They deployed Cisco Nexus Data Center Platforms (7000, 5000 and 2000) as the best technological fit to their business challenges. The solution also allows them to provision cabling for new projects quicker, facilitates planning for future projects and improved their customer services.
