As the foundation for the new "drop-in" IP Video Routing Solution, Laurel's ST200 broadband services router provides the high scalability needed to reliably meet the bandwidth demands of delivering video services. Laurel has enhanced this platform with a new Ethernet-optimized network processing blade that can deliver 10 gigabits per second of wire-speed performance and a complementary high-density 10-port gigabit Ethernet physical interface card.
As DSL access networks transition from ATM to IP, Laurel's gigabit Ethernet port density will allow direct connectivity to new Ethernet-based DSLAMs as well as provide high-speed connectivity to the IP backbone. For service providers who want to consolidate their networks immediately, the B-RAS B-RAS Broadband-Remote Access Server capabilities of the Laurel platform allow it to be deployed as a combined video router/Internet service platform.
The Supercomm demo will also feature the latest release of Laurel's ShadeTree(TM) system software. Included in the new ShadeTree 3.2 release is support for automated discovery, authentication, and network configuration of Ethernet home media devices such as IPTV set-top boxes. These enhanced subscriber management features are designed to simplify video delivery to the home. They also allow service providers to easily migrate Internet subscribers and other services onto a converged broadband services router.
The Ethernet-optimized network processor blade (NPB-E), 10-port Gigabit Ethernet physical interface card, and Shadetree 3.2 trials are scheduled in 2Q, with general availability scheduled for 3Q 2005.
