World Wide Packets Continues to Drive Cost Efficient Application Delivery for Carrier Ethernet; LE-135 Further Extends the Benefits of Carrier Ethernet to Both Residential and Business Users.

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -- World Wide Packets, a leading provider of Carrier Ethernet solutions, announced today a new addition to the LightningEdge(R) product family, the LE-135, which brings flexible and cost effective delivery of simultaneous telephony, business and entertainment video, broadband data and Internet access services to the Multi-Tenant Unit (MTU) and Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU) and mixed use markets.

Utilizing a dual module design, the LE-135 offers increased flexibility by allowing optimal central configuration of the units, enabling the reuse of existing wiring solutions for analog phone, voice, video and data in MTU/MDU applications. Field replaceable components provide enhanced system flexibility, reliability and a reduced operational cost model. These features make LE-135 the optimal choice for both business and residential dwellings by offering a more cost effective method of deploying true Carrier Ethernet services to subscribers with an improved operational model for service providers.

The LE-135 offers several key services and benefits including:

Residential Services:

--Triple play MDU Service - The LE-135 provides a lower-cost triple play service to the entire spectrum of high, medium and lower end dwellings using an integrated solution with rate limiting services, inquisitive leave and VoIP POTS residential service. The flexibility of the different module combinations, customizable to the specific buildings requirements, allows a complete utilization of the ports in the LE-135. This lowers the cost to the service provider who otherwise might require additional equipment. Advanced switching features such as inquisitive leave enables multiple Video set top boxes off a single 10/100Mbps port, reducing network traffic resulting in lower infrastructure costs.

--VoIP POTS Service - The LE-135 provides VoIP POTS service through a centralized location to multiple dwellings and tenants through the use of a multiple port module. As VoIP architecture is highly variable depending on the next generation component design of your network, the POTS module is highly configurable to meet customer needs.

Business Services:

--Instant MTU Services - The LE-135's modular design permits service providers to plug a second POTS module into a single LE-135 port, automatically activating MTU services, generating a reduction in inventory costs.

--Transparent LAN Service - The LE -135 enables Q-in-Q tagging which delivers Transparent LAN Services (TLS) for retail and remote office interconnections.

--Ethernet Service Demarcation - All the ports of the LE-135 are dual speed, either 10/100Mbps or 100Mbps/GigE. This allows the delivery of 100Mbps or GigE drops to the subscriber over either fiber (SFP) or copper. The unique port configuration of the LE-135 also offers protected (redundant) gigabit uplinks.

--Low Cost Ring Architectures - The LE-135 enables GigE Ring Architecture with customer demarcation at 100Mbps and/or GigE over fiber and/or copper with SONET-like resiliency and stability provided by World Wide Packets' carrier Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Rapid Spanning Tree Domains (RSTPD).

Reduced Operational Costs:

--Field Upgradeable/Replacement Units - With field upgradeable/replacement units, network operators can add and/or change power supplies and fans to the LE-135. This reduces downtime and minimizes inventory costs to the service provider.

--Modular Design - The modular design of the LE-135 adds flexibility to the overall network design. The carrier can deploy the same product yet customize it for each building and that buildings ratio of business/residential subscribers. In addition, the adaptability of the modular design allows the service provider to add on additional capabilities as requirements arise.

--Centralized Design - The LE-135 is designed to be installed in centralized wiring closets. This avoids the costs associated with entering individual customer premises, while enabling the use of existing wiring.

"With the addition of the LE-135 to the LightningEdge product family, World Wide Packets is pleased to now offer an even more robust and complete Carrier Ethernet delivery option," said Chad Whalen, senior vice president of business and market strategies at World Wide Packets. "The LE-135 allows our customers to deliver both business and residential subscribers a more reliable, cost-effective set of services while simplifying networks."


The LE-135 is available now.
