Redback Networks introduces SmartEdge 1200

Redback Networks has introduced the SmartEdge 1200, its third-generation multiservice edge router and million-subscriber rack for triple-play services such as HDTV, HD VoD and broadband mobility.

The SmartEdge 1200 platform introduces three major innovations. It will double carrier capacity for new video upgrades, extend triple-play services to broadband mobile networks and integrate up to six network applications into a single router.

The new network applications include deep-packet inspection for peer-to-peer traffic management, advanced session border capabilities and network security for carriers and their customers.

The SmartEdge 1200 is also compatible with the first two generations of the SmartEdge 400 and SmartEdge 800. All three router platforms share a common operating system, line cards and network software applications.
