XL Axiata Axis Capital Group Jakarta Indonesia, one of the largest cellular operators in Indonesia for consumer and machine-to-machine (M2M) services, has selected Cisco Virtualized Packet Core (VPC) to cater for its rapidly expanding data traffic. XL Axiata has reported 136 percent year-on-year data traffic growth, with data subscribers crossing over half of its 60 million subscriber. The service provider has also seen strong growth in their data smartphone users, reaching 14.6 million users as of September 2014.

According to Cisco, by implementing Cisco Virtualized Packet Core (VPC), XL Axiata has become the first to implement the Cisco solution in Asia Pacific and Japan. Cisco said that its VPC, coupled with Cisco Evolved Services Platform (ESP), enabled XL Axiata to turn up new services in minutes and easily scale operations. XL Axiata also tested Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS) servers as a compute platform to deploy Cisco VPC and Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN). Cisco VPC combines all packet core services—for 4G, 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, and small cell networks—into a single solution, providing network functions as virtualized services to enable customers to scale capacity and introduce new services much faster and more cost-effectively.

Cisco claims that the VPC is the industry's first hardware platform and hypervisor-independent solution that combines Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN).
