Lax ARTCC advised medium large transport, 'I have a ca, maintain your altitude. Just popped up conflicting traffic at 11500'.' we were at 11700'. First officer was flying and immediately pushed altitude hold. Aircraft leveled off at 11500'. The air traffic controller kept us informed of our situation as we climbed up to 12200'. All of this took less than 20 seconds when the controller advised us we were clear of traffic. Suggestion: install collision avoidance on board aircraft.
