Riverstone and PacketFront Deliver Active Ethernet

Riverstone Networks and PacketFront are partnering to provide carriers with an integrated, end-to-end Active Ethernet solution primarily targeted at European service providers.

The collaboration between the companies leverages the Riverstone 15008
Ethernet Edge Router in the metro edge and core and PacketFront's fully automated broadband solution including its ASR aggregation and access routers and "BECS" system software used for control and provisioning of network elements and triple play services.

The companies said the combined solution is intended to allow
carriers to more rapidly deploy open access FTTH networks based on best-of-breed products by eliminating the need for them to conduct interoperability trials between vendor platforms.
