Benefits of Airtel-Cisco Partnership

The demand for high-speed internet services is rapidly growing in India. Bharti Airtel currently serves over 280 million mobile subscribers across 4G and 2G technologies in India. The new IP developed by the telco giant over Ethernet is the most substantial hyper-complex brownfield network transformation in India, which will collapse multiple legacy domains in order to build a smaller and flatter 5G ready IP network.
