Citynet picks White Rock for IP edge aggregation
March 20, 2006 Richardson, TX -- Citynet has selected White Rock Networks' VLX300 service edge concentrator for aggregation of T1- based IP services in the provider's edge networks.
March 20, 2006 Richardson, TX -- Citynet, a facilities-based provider serving retail and wholesale customers in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwestern U.S., selected White Rock Networks' VLX300 service edge concentrator for aggregation of T1- based IP services in the provider's edge networks.
"As we roll out new wire centers, aggregating voice and data as close to the customer as possible is critical for conserving network resources and providing good service levels," comments Eric Krichbaum, director of retail engineering for Citynet. "The VLX300 fits that process well by being completely transparent to the end user, while still giving us the aggregation we were looking to achieve."
White Rock says its VLX300 provides up to 12 channelized DS3 interfaces for aggregation of T1-based IP business services, typically delivered with PPP, MLPPP, HDLC, or Frame Relay to enterprise routers at the customer premises. The platform also provides two options for the backhaul of consolidated IP traffic: clear channel DS3, which utilizes Frame Relay virtual connections for customer segregation, and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) which utilizes VLAN tagging to segregate customer traffic.
