RiverDelta is introducing a product for Distributed Policy-Based Routing or open access that scales to support multiple ISPs delivering thousands of services over a broadband network. The company also announced Multiprotocol Label Switching Per-Flow Control, enabling broadband operators to implement end-to-end quality of service across the access network and across the backbones of multiple service providers.
RiverDelta also announced a collaboration with Siemens AG. The Siemens Information and Communications Network Group will integrate the Broadband Services Router 1000 from RiverDelta Networks as part of its own broadband access solutions for smaller MSOs.
RiverDelta Networks has implemented policy-based routing in hardware, with distributed packet processing to support large numbers of subscribers across multiple service providers. Until now, policy-based routing implementations have been software-based and centralized, enabling operators to trial multiple ISP access but not to scale the system for actual deployment.
By placing Broadband Services Router 64000 with policy-based routing at the edge of the network, operators eliminate the bottleneck that forms at the regional headend and increase service delivery rates.
For the first time, broadband operators will be able to monitor and control individual traffic flows for multiple services from multiple service providers across both access and core networks.
