Listen up, small MSOs. You're the target.
Germany's Siemens AG's effort to "target small cable MSOs worldwide with a professional end-to-end solution that will allow operators to quickly and efficiently upgrade their networks" just snapped up RiverDelta Networks' BSR1000, RiverDelta reports.
The Tewksbury, Mass.-based provider of carrier-class broadband routing, switching and service management solutions was tapped by Siemens Information and Communications Networks Group, which will integrate the Broadband Services Router 1000 into its effort.
Siemens' use helps RiverDelta's efforts to grow into European markets.
The DOCSIS-1.0 and EuroDOCSIS-1.0-qualified system will let small- and medium-sized operators add such services as voice-over-IP, video streaming and high-speed Internet access, the company reports, adding that it also will combine both the upconverter and high-end routing capabilities within the smallest footprint in the industry.
In other news, RiverDelta just launched its hardware-based Distributed Policy-Based Routing, which it says scales to support multiple ISPs delivering thousands of services over a broadband network.
At the same time, the company released the Multiprotocol Label Switching Per-Flow Control, which lets operators use QoS across the access network and the backbones of multiple service providers.
