BellSouth Selects Redback for Triple Play

BellSouth selected Redback Networks' SmartEdge Service Gateway platform for its next-generation integrated IP network. The SmartEdge systems will enable the delivery of "Triple Play" services, including potential future IP video services that BellSouth is currently testing, in addition to serving as the new architecture for broadband services and subscriber management. Deployment of the systems could begin as early as the second half of 2005.

Previous generation SMS systems from Redback Networks have powered BellSouth's successful deployments of DSL to its customer base. Currently, Redback products run the majority of the broadband DSL lines in the U.S. Utilizing the next-generation SmartEdge Service Gateway systems provides BellSouth with high bandwidth for integrated video, voice and data networks along with individualized services, very high levels of reliability and advanced edge routing capabilities. Migration from SMS systems to SmartEdge Service Gateway systems is architected to offer seamless, simplified installation, configuration and training.

  • Redback has recently announced deployment of its SmartEdge Service Gateway systems in Triple Play networks of Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom, and Hanaro Telecom, Korea's second largest DSL provider.
