Fine Point Networks' ServPoET(R) Releases Upgraded Support for AdvancedTCA Solutions.

NEW YORK -- Fine Point Technologies a leader in broadband network connectivity, today announced that the new release of its Broadband Management Server Network Operating System (NOS) ServPoET BMS v3.7 offers enhanced Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture* (AdvancedTCA*) support.

ServPoET 3.7 on AdvancedTCA* in conjunction with the newly released feature of no interruption of subscriber's service during PPPoE configuration changes and its previously released patent-pending SmartCluster(TM) Advanced Clustering Technology solidifies ServPoET BMS as the completely redundant solution for providing mission critical PPPoE termination services.

Bob Carrick, Broadband Product Manager at Fine Point Networks, commented, "Enhancing our AdvancedTCA* support for the BMS 1000, which we've already sold and deployed to two US based providers, enables Service Providers to offer residential PPPoE Internet services on a fully redundant, up to 72,000 subscriber capacity, and load balancing on a standardized carrier grade communications platform, that we feel only standards-based, modular building blocks from Intel could deliver."

The ServPoET BMS 1000 is deployed using standards-based, modular building blocks from Intel, more specifically on the Intel NetStructure(R) MPCBL0001 Single Board Computer, which is housed in the Intel NetStructure MPCHC0001 14U Shelf. Fine Point Networks also deploys the BMS 1000 using the Intel NetStructure MPCMM0001 Chassis Management Module.

Also included in the ServPoET BMS 3.7 release is Bridged Ethernet over Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) support and the ability to modify server configuration changes without interrupting currently connected subscribers.

"TEMs and service providers are increasingly requiring flexible, scalable network infrastructure built on industry standards," said Staci Palmer, director of marketing, Modular Communications Platform Division, Intel. "AdvancedTCA solutions, such as SERVPOET(R) from Fine Point, meet these requirements and help to accelerate CapEx and OpEx benefits in a standards-based network."

The new release of the ServPoET BMS NOS empowers Service Providers to not only terminate PPPoE and PPPoEoA subscriber sessions, but now also Bridge Ethernet over ATM subscriber traffic through the ServPoET BMS. This enhancement allows Service Providers who have a mix of subscriber base, from PPPoX through Bridged Ethernet to all be aggregated on to one central ServPoET BMS as well as bridging costly ATM traffic over to Ethernet, lowering network deployment costs significantly.

The ServPoET(TM) Broadband Management Server (BMS) platform provides the industry-leading family of PPPoE subscriber management products that offload and terminate PPPoE sessions for all types of broadband service at nearly 1/3 the cost and 3x the performance. The ServPoET BMS(TM) platform offers carriers and service providers worldwide a solution for aggregating and managing broadband PPPoE subscribers and value-added services.
