Cisco’s ASR5500 is the LTE core network platform used by service providers like Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T. Cisco’s design team needed functional verification of internal FPGAs to monitor system health and provide access for maintenance and upgrades.
On-time delivery and successfully meeting reliability requirements helped Cisco secure 90% of the worldwide LTE core network market with the ASR5500.
EMC’s Symmetrix development team had a wide range of needs – from development of an IBM Escon card, to verification of a new DDR2 memory controller, to upgraded board-and-backplane connectivity testing.
Delivering the new and upgraded cards allowed Symmetrix to gain access to new markets and helped fuel EMC’s growth.
