Indonesia's Biznet Deploys Nortel's Metro Ethernet

Biznet, an Indonesian ISP and data center provider, has deployed optical Ethernet technology in Jakarta. The new Biznet services include MetroNET, a bundled local loop and Internet access service at speeds up to 2 Mbps, and MetroWAN, a local loop service for interconnecting multiple locations across Jakarta's main business district. The services use Nortel's Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 to provide guaranteed bandwidth service levels, secure services with customer demarcation on a shared uplink, and QoS for triple-play applications.

Nortel's Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 delivers high-density, high-performance Layer 2-7 switching, routing and traffic classification.

Nortel said more than 35,000 units and 187,000 service cards have been shipped to service provider and enterprise customers around the world.
