Kyrgyzstan’s incumbent telecoms operator Kyrgyztelecom is deploying Cisco’s ASR 100 Series Aggregation Services Router as a network platform for broadband-based voice and data services. According to a press release from the vendor, the implementation of the solution is a key element of Kyrgyztelecom’s plans to build a next-generation Metro Ethernet fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) aggregation network, initially in the capital of Bishkek and then across other cities. ‘Kyrgyztelecom’s mission is to contribute to Kyrgyzstan’s socio-economic development by providing a world-class communications infrastructure to every citizen whenever and wherever it’s needed, and by any available media,’ said Marat Mambetaliev, Kyrgyztelecom’s CEO, adding, ‘By choosing Cisco’s latest innovative technologies, we are ready for the future expansion of our network, including the deployment of a next-generation Metro Ethernet FTTH aggregation network in Bishkek and beyond.’ Over the next two to three years, the operator plans to connect five million people to broadband services.
