The combination of the two will give service providers the ability to aggregate customer traffic as it enters their networks and to apply service policies to it. Redback says its system architecture gives it the edge. By associating circuits to contexts, the equipment reduces the processing needed to handle each packet, boosting performance, Redback says.
Redback also announced SmartEdge , a new hardware platform that is about half the size of its previous SmartEdge He says he expects Redback to eventually phase out its SMS gear.
On the subject of separate boxes, Cisco is offering BRAS functionality on two distinct routing platforms -- one optimized for ATM-centric aggregation, the other targeted at Ethernet. Vendors typically offer both applications on one router. The enhancements include the PRE-2 route processor, which is intended to deliver line rate OC performance for byte packets and support up to 60, active simultaneous sessions.
This enables service providers to configure VCs with 10 to 12 lines of commands per "range" of sessions. Each range typically has 4, to 16, sessions. This is in contrast to 15, lines of commands per range via manual VC configuration, Cisco says. Usually, a session per service would be required. As for the two box solution for ATM and Ethernet aggregation, Cisco says it is protecting investments in the and by adding new functionality to installed platforms. The software and products are available now.
MWAM and its software will be available this month. Learn more about this topic.
