Integral Access PurePacket Platform Receives NEBS Certification; MPLS-Based Multi-Service Access System Achieves Universal Measure of Public Network Product Excellence.
CHELMSFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 13, 2000
Integral Access, Inc. -- the multi-service MPLS (1) (MultiProtocol Lambda Switching) The earlier name for GMPLS. See GMPLS.
(2) (MultiProtocol Label Switching) A standard from the IETF for including routing information in the packets of an IP network. access company -- today announced that the PurePacket Platform has successfully achieved Network Equipment Building System (NEBS) certification. PurePacket, which enables network operators to combine voice/data on IP-based and circuit switched infrastructures, conforms to the stringent NEBS standards for risk, safety, and hazard. NEBS certification is required for all equipment that Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) collocate col·lo·cate

Originally developed by Bell Telephone Laboratories in the 1970s and expanded by Bellcore (now Telcordia Technologies Telcordia Technologies, formerly Bell Communications Research, Inc. or Bellcore, is a telecommunications research and development (R&D) company based in the United States and created on January 1 1984 as part of the 1982 Modification of Final Judgment that broke up ), NEBS is a rigorous set of specifications for network facilities located equipment. To receive NEBS certification products must pass a suite of tests ensuring that they will: not negatively affect other service providing equipment; operate properly in adverse environmental conditions; and not cause harm to the environment or personnel.
"NEBS provides network operators with the confidence of knowing that certified equipment is safe to use and does not pose a risk to existing equipment," said Marc Parent, Vice President of Hardware, Integral Access. "The PurePacket platform was designed to comply with the NEBS standards and exceed the requirements of the most demanding carrier networks."
PurePacket is a multi-service packet-based access system that enables competitive carriers to offer differentiated services Offerings that can be classified by type, or quality, of service. For example, a differentiated services network could prioritize real time traffic for a higher fee. and combine voice/data on new generation IP-based networks, as well as traditional circuit switched infrastructures. This complete access solution includes customer premise equipment, central office aggregation devices (for central office, co-locations and points of presence), and an operations management system for network control and services management. To guarantee QoS, enable Class of Service (CoS), and maximize the traffic carrying capacity carrying capacity

Usually stated as dry cows or dry sheep equivalents per hectare. of access networks, PurePacket uses an MPLS-based architecture to route, transport and switch voice and data transmissions in packet format.
