NTT Plala, a part of NTT group and provider of ‘Plala’ personal Internet service has deployed the Cisco Aggregation Services Router 9000 Series (ASR 9000) for its Internet access service.
By deploying Aggregation Services Router 9000 Series will allow NTT Plala to build a secure wideband Internet service infrastructure while reducing energy consumption, the company said.
