In order to optimize operating expenses (OPEX) and rationalize distribution of investment resources for the FTTx project, MTS set up its core network on the basis of existing transport infrastructure built and actively used for the delivery of 3G services. A unique topology of that network - which has no analogs in
MTS chose field-proven Cisco ASR 9000 core routers for their exceptional performance combined with rich functionality to satisfy growing demand for bandwidth. Deployment of Cisco ASR 9000 routers expanded the capacity of the MTS transport network, raised the reliability and ensured comprehensive support for the IPv6 protocol.
Key Facts / Highlights: IPv6 was developed to solve the shortage of address space of its predecessor IPv4. IPv4 supports 4.3 billion unique global addresses, while the new protocol supports 3.4 x 1038 = 340 trillion trillion trillion addresses - about 670 quadrillion addresses per square millimeter of the Earth's surface. It means that IPv6 address space is almost unlimited.
IPv6 provides end users with a number of benefits first of all, with a sufficient number of direct static IP addresses needed to identify all user devices in a global network. The protocol makes it possible to supply every end user with a range of unique static addresses as well as assign a whole subnet large enough to support various devices: PCs, sensors, security appliances, video surveillance tools, etc.
