11 November 2003 Bothell, WA Lightwave--Allied Telesyn, a global provider of IP networking solutions for the access edge, today announced the RG613, the first in its new family of residential gateways for carriers offering "triple play" voice, data, and video services. The 600 Series Residential Gateways bring advanced data and IP voice capabilities to triple play service providers and their subscribers, enabling more efficient and secure Internet access.
In addition to IP voice, video, and high-speed data capabilities, the RG613 includes advanced Layer 3 data functions such as network address translation (NAT), a stateful inspection firewall, and virtual server/DMZ functions for added security; and support for more IP signaling protocols to support a broader range of network equipment and applications.
The RG613 Residential Gateway delivers new Layer 3 data functions and an enhanced voice-over-IP (VoIP) feature set that will be essential as carriers deploy new home data services. Its integral 10/100 Ethernet switch supports port-based operation on up to 16 tagged virtual LANs (VLANs), combining wire-speed Layer 2 switching between VLANs with high-performance Layer 3 routing between VLANs in a single, cost-effective unit. NAT and the RG613's built-in firewall capabilities will allow subscribers to protect their always-on broadband connections against a wide range of unauthorized attacks, while ensuring speedy delivery of approved content. In addition, the RG613 offers enhanced Voice-over-IP capabilities that support SIP, MGCP, and H.323 signaling protocols.
"The RG600 Series is another step forward in our mission to deliver the most advanced networking applications for carriers delivering triple play services over fiber or copper," said Howard Kamerer, president and chief operating officer of Allied Telesyn. "We will continue to be aggressive in rolling out new, end-to-end solutions that accelerate the cost-effective deployment of advanced and profitable carrier services."
The RG613 supports services delivered over fiber or copper. It features three 10/100 Ethernet LAN ports, one 10/100FX/LX singlemode and multimode Ethernet WAN port, and two integral FXS ports for standard analog phones, faxes or modems. The new gateway supports cost-effective video delivery with Internet gateway message protocol v1 and v2 snooping and proxying and supports 16 VLANs resulting in high quality, high-bandwidth video streaming without affecting Internet surfing or IP telephony on adjacent ports.
In addition, the RG613 offers a modular design for its fiber versions that gives builders and service providers extra deployment flexibility and cost savings. Builders can install the low-cost base terminal in every new home to terminate the fiber connection, and then service providers can simply mail the RG613 gateway to customers who sign up for triple play services. Once the RG613 is plugged into the base, it automatically retrieves a configuration file and initiates the appropriate services -- typically eliminating the need for deploying a professional installer. The RG613 is available immediately.
