Verizon seeks multi-service edge device

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

September 27 2007: Verizon will likely announce the winner of its RFP for a multi-service edge device by late November, and the announcement could come as much as a month earlier. The company, like many access providers, has been looking for a device that could be used to transition customers from the multiple packet protocols used to deliver business services today, to a converged Etherenet/IP infrastructure. Verizon is looking initially for products to deploy IP VPNs and Ethernet services, primarily over carrier-grade Ethernet infrastructure. The box will have IP features but is likely to be acting as an edge router for IP-over-Ethernet rather than direct IP connection. We believe that Verizon is also asking for a PBB/PBT commitment.
