The Ericsson SmartEdge Multi-Service Edge Routers have been specifically designed and optimized to deliver carrier-class services such as video, voice, data and interactive content delivery. It consolidates and simplifies the edge of the service provider’s network by converging Ethernet aggregation, B-RAS and IP/MPLS PE functionalities onto a single compact platform.
The award-winning SmartEdge Multi-Service Edge Router (MSER) family unifies multiple sets of functionality into a single, multi-functional platform that includes edge routing, Ethernet aggregation, subscriber management, and advanced services. These services are offered with carrier-class reliability, scalability and performance. The MSER family of products also has minimal power requirements. Some key features and characteristics include:
The SmartEdge 100 integrates high-performance edge routing and advanced subscriber management capabilities into a compact and flexible multi-service edge router. It is suitable for deployment in smaller network environments with fewer subscribers or ports.
The SmartEdge 600 MSER consolidates and simplifies the network edge, allowing operators to accommodate more bandwidth, traffic and subscribers.
The SmartEdge 1200 MSER is a highly scalable platform specifically designed to address the requirements of large networks that support large volumes of traffic. For maximum throughput, it supports 20G card slots. For additional traffic processing, it can also support 40G card slots (2:1 oversubscribed). In addition, it can support up to 256,000 PPP or DHCP subscribers in one chassis in 1/3 of a 7 ft. rack.
The SmartEdge 1200 MSER paves the way for fixed-mobile convergence, supporting more than 750,000 subscribers per rack and facilitating the delivery of IPTV, HDTV, broadband and megabit mobility.
