JUNE 17, 2010 -- Pacnet, Asia's independent telecommunications service provider, has completed the deployment of a scalable Internet Protocol Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) based on the Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS) platform.

Pacnet aims to take advantage of the system's features to help increase business profitability, service scalability, and operational efficiency while meeting customers' demands for higher bandwidth capacity and greater service flexibility.

Pacnet is witnessing exponential growth in the demand for cloud computing, virtualization, and data center hosting services from enterprises of all sizes. The deployment of the Cisco CRS platform enables Pacnet to transmit data and content faster, transform cable landing facilities into data landing stations, and be well-prepared to scale with the escalating growth of video transmissions, mobile data traffic, and new online services.

Designed to deliver continuous system operation, service flexibility, and extended system longevity to telecommunications service providers, the Cisco CRS platform includes a series of hardware and software innovations that include Cisco IOS XR Software, Cisco Intelligent ServiceFlex design, and more.

Pacnet enables support for bandwidth-intensive applications via its cable landing facilities. With the Cisco CRS terabit-scale system capacity, the company will be able to deliver massive volume transmission with quicker network response for customers, says a representative. It reduces latency and cost by routing International IP traffic directly through cable landing stations without having to route through inland stations.

Pacnet offers services designed for continuous availability with Cisco IOS XR Software, a self-healing operating system for multishelf, multiterabit carrier infrastructure that can be maintained, upgraded, enhanced, and scaled without requiring service interruptions.

The Cisco CRS enables Pacnet to transmit IP packets with an intelligent routing process that optimizes network bandwidth by balancing the IP traffic between the most congested and less congested areas.

Implementation of the Cisco CRS was completed early this month and supports Pacnet's plans for converting cable landing facilities into data landing stations by handling the multidirectional traffic of network and data center cloud interactions.
