EastLink chooses Cisco ASR 9000 for residential and business broadband services

June 10, 2010
JUNE 10, 2010 -- Cisco says that EastLink is deploying Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers as the broadband aggregation platform to deliver ultra-high-speed Internet access throughout its Atlantic Canada network footprint.

JUNE 10, 2010 -- Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) says that EastLink is deploying Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers as the broadband aggregation platform to deliver ultra-high-speed Internet access throughout its Atlantic Canada network footprint.

Initial deployment of the Cisco ASR 9000 will occur in EastLink’s Atlantic regional centers, which serve customers in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland.

The use of video, collaboration tools, and cloud-based services is driving increased adoption of EastLink's faster-service tiers, including its recently announced 100-Mbps service offering, says Cisco. Deployment of the ASR 9000 will also meet EastLink's future bandwidth requirements, including 100 Gigabit Ethernet, 3-D video, and advanced business services.

EastLink's ASR 9000 deployment complements its existing Cisco optical infrastructure. Cisco says its reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM), technology, a component of the Cisco ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP), enables EastLink to add, drop, or pass through any combination of the available wavelengths by remote control.
