SEPTEMBER 9, 2010 -- Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) says that Abertis Telecom, a provider of video and Carrier Ethernet transport to broadcasters and the broader telecom market in Spain, is enhancing its IP next-generation network by deploying a Cisco IP/Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) system based on Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers and Cisco 7600 Series Routers.

Abertis is preparing its network to enable more bandwidth and new capabilities, such as video contribution, video production, Carrier Ethernet transport, and primary distribution and content distribution services, Cisco says.

The upgraded IP/MPLS architecture will be designed to enable Abertis to deliver new types of services, optimize its capacity, and realize operational expenditure savings. Such enhancements will be required for current video demands and future services such as 3D video, increased interactivity, and more pervasive high-definition television experiences across Spain.

Cisco says its Carrier Ethernet system includes video capabilities such as high-performance multicast and in-line video performance monitoring. Furthermore, Abertis will continue to maintain stringent service-level agreements with its customers with zero-loss video transport technology, Cisco adds.
