Russia's MTS Deploys Cisco CRS-3 with NAT in Siberia

Russia's Mobile TeleSystems (MTS) has deployed the Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System to provide its rapidly growing audience of subscribers with high-quality Internet access despite the growing shortage of IPv4 addresses. The equipment was delivered by Sitronics IT, a Cisco Gold Certified Partner in Russia.

Cisco noted that MTS is using its Carrier-Grade Network Address Translation (NAT) solution to connect new users by offering one address to several subscribers. The capability to extend the system to 80 million address translations will enable MTS to centralize Internet access for several regional mobile and fixed networks. In the initial phase, Cisco NAT has been installed in Siberia. In future this technology will be implemented in all other regional subsidiaries across the country.
