ACG Research analyzed the total cost of ownership (TCO) of meeting requirements for scale and flexibility in the mobile multimedia core for the Cisco ASR 5500 and a leading competitor’s solution. The analysis found that the ASR 5500 solution has 47% lower five-year cumulative TCO than the competitor’s solution; CapEx is 51% and OpEx is 32% lower.

LTE deployments are ramping up, and many vendors have been talking up their mobile packet core expertise and preparing their next-gen platforms. This TCO analyzes why the Cisco ASR 5500 is a compelling product.
