Nortel launches Versalar Switch Router
Nortel Networks has launched its Versalar Switch Router 15000, to provide service providers with IP CoS features and a high concentration of dedicated connections. According to the company, it also reduces price per port and increases access density, saving access POP infrastructure costs. The Versalar Switch Router 15000 is also an MPLS Label Edge Router, which lets service providers maximise return from their transmission investment through MPLS traffic engineering and offers customers MPLS-based virtual private network services. It allows much higher levels of aggregation and provides an application-intelligent platform for IP services, such as VPNs and voice-over-IP, through flexible CoS capabilities.
The Versalar 15000 also allows differentiation between multiple classes of premium and non-premium traffic to provide service-level agreements based on delay or packet loss without having to over-engineer the backbone, according to Nortel.
