Magya Telekom chooses Cisco routers for LTE

Magyar Telekom has agreed a deal with Cisco to deploy 4G LTE multimedia services using its mobile internet solutions.

The Deutsche Telekom Group subsidiary will use the Cisco ASR 5000 series mobile multimedia core, Cisco ASR 9000 series aggregation services routers and Cisco ME 3800X series carrier ethernet switch routers to deliver improved mobile services to its customers.

By doing so, Magyar Telekom is able to provide a suitable 4G mobile broadband network to cope with the increase in demand for network capacity caused by the increasing popularity of smartphones and the subsequent surge in demand for mobile web services.

Istvan Maradi, chief technology and information officer at Magyar Telekom Group, said: "We are delighted to be the first service provider to launch a commercial 4G/LTE service in Hungary. The commercial launch was preceded by a broad-scale test period involving hundreds of residential and business customers - both SMEs and large enterprise clients."
