Deutsche Telekom Installs ISE Line Cards in Cisco 12000 Routers

Deutsche Telekom is deploying Cisco IP Service Engine (ISE) technology in its Cisco 12000 Series Routers in order to support new multimedia services. The project is part of Deutsche Telekom's network optimization program to converge services from multiple platforms onto IP/ MPLS.

Cisco said the modular configuration of the ISE linecards provides a cost-effective solution to Deutsche Telekom as each linecard can deliver the capacity of up to three existing routers. This simplifies the network architecture, leading to considerable savings in maintenance costs, space requirements and power consumption. Each ISE linecard is able to support additional capacity, allowing Deutsche Telekom to extend its investment and facilitate future expansion plans.
