Santa Clara (sän`tä klä`rä), city (1994 est. pop. 217,000), capital of Villa Clara prov., central Cuba. , Calif. -- Riverstone Networks Riverstone Networks, was a provider of networking switching hardware based in Santa Clara, California. Originally part of Cabletron Systems, and based on an early acquisition of YAGO, it was one of the many Gigabit Ethernet startups in the mid 1990's. , a leading provider of Carrier Ethernet solutions, today announced that Sichuan Telecom, a division of China Telecom, is deploying Riverstone's 15008 and RS 3100 routers to upgrade its existing metro Ethernet A metropolitan area network (MAN) that uses a 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) backbone rather than SONET/SDH links. Ethernet offers a more economical alternative. In a Metro Ethernet network, multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) may be deployed to provide quality of service (QoS). network in Luzhou prefecture, Sichuan province. The deployment reflects Riverstone's growing relationship with China Telecom, which has also deployed the company's industry-leading Ethernet routers in its Shanghai and Wuhan branches.
Using Riverstone's Virtual Private LAN Services Virtual private LAN service (VPLS) is a way to provide Ethernet based multipoint to multipoint communication over IP/MPLS networks. It allows geographically dispersed sites to share an ethernet broadcast domain by connecting sites through pseudo-wires. (VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Service) A multipoint virtual private network (VPN) service from carriers that connects any number of Ethernet LANs together over an IP core, typically using MPLS, although other encapsulation protocols can be used. ) technology, Sichuan Telecom will be able to substantially scale its network to accommodate additional and larger enterprise subscribers. In addition to scaling the network, Sichuan Telecom will be able to offer more reliable and secure Layer 2 VPNs and IP/MPLS IP/MPLS Internet Protocol/Multi-Protocol Label Switching services, all of which it cannot do with its existing network. The VPLS-based network will also provide the additional Quality of Service (QoS) needed for the carrier to provide its business customers with guaranteed Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
