Mobile operator Orange Slovakia has chosen the Cisco's ASR 5000 Series elastic evolved packet core for its recently launched 4G long-term evolution (LTE) network. With Cisco solution, Orange Slovakia aims to transform its architecture and seamlessly migrate mobile data traffic from existing 2G and 3G networks.

According to Cisco, ASR 5000 Series is an elastic solution that allocates resources on-demand across transactions, throughput, and sessions over heterogeneous networks. As a result, services such as policy charging and enforcement function (PCEF) and deep packet inspection (DPI) can be supported with high reliability and availability. The solution is designed for carrier-grade SDN and NfV so it can scale to meet the demands of the rapidly growing mobile Internet.

As of now, 25 percent of the Slovak population can use the 4G network in 13 Slovak towns. By the end of the year, Orange plans to make its new 4G network available in 24 towns and thus cover almost 30% of the population.
