Hong Kong's PCCW Deploys Riverstone Edge Router

PCCW, the incumbent service provider in Hong Kong, will deploy Riverstone Networks' 15008 Ethernet Edge Router. Cascade Limited, PCCW's professional services subsidiary, will begin deploying the Riverstone 15008 in PCCW's network to provide the carrier's customers with business-class, bandwidth-intensive Ethernet services through its existing metro Ethernet network. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The procurement builds upon Riverstone's existing relationship with PCCW, which first deployed Riverstone's RS 8600 and RS 3000 carrier Ethernet routers in 2002 to bridge its ATM network to provide broadband access and VPLS. Riverstone has also delivered Ethernet networks to China Telecom, China Railcom, China Netcom, Chunghwa Telecom and Hutchison Global Communications.

  • Riverstone Networks 15008 Ethernet Edge Router features a 192 Gbps non-blocking switch fabric (384 Gbps full-duplex) providing the ability to converge traffic over MPLS. The new ASIC-driven Riverstone 15008 Ethernet Edge Router employs a distributed and modular operating system architecture that allows the router to detect and restart errant protocols without affecting the rest of the system. The 10GigE router offers IEEE VLAN support and VLAN Stacking. Additional VLAN support includes Ethernet Pseudowire, VPLS and H-VPLS, future Layer 3 VPNs, E-Line and E-LAN, E-UNI , etc.
