Ericsson Positions SSR 8000 as Broadband Gateway

Ericsson introduced Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) functionality for its SSR 8000 Smart Services Router family.

Ericsson said its next generation Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) supports up to 768,000 subscribers in a single rack with a total power consumption, fully loaded, of 14,000 watts.

The platform can enable the delivery of services targeted at a specific user or session or device. Ericsson BNG on SSR 8000 offers a wide range of interfaces.  This new gateway derives its software technology foundation from Ericsson's Broadband Remote Access Service (BRAS), which has been deployed by more than 360 networks worldwide.

 "Ericsson's BNG on SSR 8000 gives service providers industry-leading subscriber scale - it triples subscriber scalability compared to other industry BNGs. With its time-tested and field-proven software and scale, it sets a new benchmark yet again," stated Jan H├Ąglund, Vice President, Head of IP and Broadband Networks.
