ADSL connections: Role of DSLAM and B-RAS
equipment in an access network
The ST-series B-RAS
platform enables broadband service providers to cost-efficiently evolve beyond basic Internet service to revenue-boosting, added-value services such as voice over IP, video-on-demand and IP VPNs.
S3's hierarchical shaper and scheduler solution is a great fit for infrastructure equipment manufacturers looking to adhere to TR-059 Traffic Management and B-RAS
functionality", said Bob Ghaffari, metro-edge segment manager, Intel Infrastructure Processor Division.
The ST-series B-RAS
platform enables broadband service providers to cost-efficiently evolve beyond basic Internet service to sophisticated services that can immediately begin impacting revenues such as voice over IP, video-on-demand and IP VPNs.
The B-RAS (broadband remote access server) capabilities of the ST200 will be featured in the DSL Forum's DSLHome(TM) exhibit (#20229).
In the exhibit of Laurel partner CIENA Corporation (#23815), the ST200 will provide the feature-rich B-RAS and IP/Internet routing functionality in CIENA's multi-product residential triple play demonstration of high-speed data, voice and video services - over copper (POTS + DSL) and fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP).
All advanced ST200 services including robust Internet routing, scalable IP VPNs, Layer 2 switched services, high-performance B-RAS
(broadband remote access server) functionality and triple play-capable QoS (quality of service) are available on the ST50 upon release.
The Redback Service Gateway platforms integrate the B-RAS
strength of Redback's industry-leading SMS(TM) family of subscriber management systems with the SmartEdge platform's purpose-built hardware and software to provide subscriber management with dynamic policy enforcement, carrier-class IP routing, ATM mediation, MPLS VPNs, multicast and advanced video capabilities and high performance Quality of Service (QoS).
Intended primarily for edge equipment vendors and manufacturers, IES is also ideally suited for developers of session controllers, DSLAMs, B-RAS
systems, and IP-Service platforms.
After engaging several B-RAS
vendors in extensive technology evaluations, Arsys selected CIENA to provide the Laurel Networks ST200 platform to meet rapid subscriber growth and customer demand for higher connection speeds.
