T-Com, the broadband and fixed network business area of Deutsche Telekom, has certified and deployed the Cisco CRS-1 Carrier Routing System as the core terabit routing system in its multi-vendor IP/MPLS network. The CRS-1 system is being used to provide the capacity and future scalability to handle the growth in traffic from T-Com's expanding high-speed broadband customer base and innovative services, such as the "T-Home" IPTV and video-on-demand service. Financial terms were not disclosed.

T-Com's multi-vendor IP/MPLS network now incorporates the Cisco CRS-1 Carrier Routing System in the core, Cisco 12000 Series routers at the provider edge, Cisco 10008 Series routers as Broadband Remote Access Server (BRAS) platforms and Cisco Catalyst 6509 Series switches.
