Vodafone Idea (Vi) has signed a pact with Cisco to automate its telecom network to support 4G and, in the future, 5G use cases for offering enhanced user experience to its consumer, retail and enterprise customers.
Vi is working with Cisco to design and build a cost-efficient network architecture to drive greater speed to market with emerging opportunities in 4G and 5G, cloud, and the Internet of Things (IoT), a statement said on Wednesday.
Under the partnership, Cisco will deploy its solution on Vi’s network architecture, which will enable the telco to deploy innovative new software applications and services, including voice-over-WiFi. Cisco’s offering will also enable Vi to leverage functions such as automation and analytics, the statement added.
“We are committed to providing seamless connectivity to our customers and enhancing user experiences, empowered by an intelligent and automated network,” said Jagbir Singh, chief technology officer, Vodafone Idea.
