Cisco Enables PLDT to Unleash the Full Potential of 5G

The transformation to a converged SDN transport network simplifies the network, increases capacity and improves scalability while maintaining a consistent and superior customer experience. It is capable of concurrently supporting fixed and mobile services pertaining to consumer broadband, enterprise, small and medium businesses, retail and wholesale business models, real-time immersive experiences, as well as IoT connectivity and value-adds.

The new network is an end-to-end IP and optical network enabled with segment routing, providing a unified, policy-aware network architecture with seamless integration between the transport and the data centre domains. Segment routing also provides the network with the most cost-effective end-to-end network slicing and low latency capabilities, which are key 5G requirements.
