China Unicom Deploys Cisco Mobile Exchange

China Unicom will deploy the Cisco CMX (Cisco Mobile Exchange) solution in Beijing, Guangdong, Shandong and Heilongjiang to support on-demand services, service-based authorization and tariff schemes.

The move to a wireless data access platform also facilitates China Unicom's development in the 2.5G and 3G mobile data business. The CMX enables China Unicom to manage real-time services and pre-paid applications. In addition, the Cisco CMX supports pre-paid and post-paid systems and allows operators to switch from air-time-based or per-byte tariff schemes to those based on services or applications. Financial terms were not disclosed.
