Insight Communications deploys RiverDelta Networks' broadband services routers

May 3, 2001
May 3, 2001--Insight Communications, a cable operator in the U.S., and RiverDelta Networks, Inc., a provider of carrier-class broadband routing, switching, and service management solutions, announced that Insight will deploy the RiverDelta Networks Broadband Services Routers.

Insight Communications (Nasdaq: ICCI), a cable operator in the U.S., and RiverDelta Networks, Inc., a provider of carrier-class broadband routing, switching, and service management solutions, announced that Insight will deploy the RiverDelta Networks Broadband Services Routers (BSRs) to deliver tiered service offerings with guaranteed levels of service to residential and business customers in its Lexington, Kentucky service area. The RiverDelta Networks BSR 64000s will also be used by Insight to support future open access applications.

Insight will deploy the RiverDelta Networks BSR equipment to deliver innovative broadband solutions, initially focusing on high-speed Virtual Private Network services to the business and university communities, with other interactive services expected to follow in the future. Tiered service offerings will begin in the second quarter of 2001. Future open access applications will use the RiverDelta Networks BSR 64000 with policy-based routing and Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) to support multiple Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offering services over the broadband network. The high-performance BSR 64000 provides intelligent routing which enables scalability through carrier-class routing, SmartFlow TM Quality of Service (QoS) with per-flow control, and an integrated, high-density, Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS), which supports subscriber base expansion and multiservice provider offerings.

RiverDelta Networks SmartFlow QoS technology runs on the BSR platform to deliver broad multiservice support and enables Insight Communications to track individual traffic flows and isolate the traffic of individual providers, customers, and applications across their own or any service provider's core network to ensure that they are within their Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements. Per-flow control, implemented at wire speed on the BSR 64000 using distributed, policy-based routing, dynamically allocates bandwidth to individual flows based on pre-determined levels of service. Using its unique per-flow queuing, the BSR 64000 assigns each traffic flow its own queue and provides a guaranteed minimum rate to ensure it meets its SLA commitments.
