"The radio-independent IP-based mobile backhaul and packet core infrastructure will offer pre-eminent traffic capacity and operating efficiency for the global growth of the next-generation mobile internet," said Vish Iyer, vice president, of Cisco's service provider businessin a statement.

Reliance's new mobile architecture, which includes the Cisco ASR 5000, Cisco 7600 and Cisco ME 3800X Series routers, will enable Reliance to develop and deliver, on a large scale, highly personalised and customised mobile multimedia services with superior quality and reliability.
