Lucent Technologies Unveils Next-Generation IP Services Router
Murray Hill, NJ (ots) - Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU) today announced the global availability of a high-performance, competitively priced next-generation Internet protocol (IP) service router that will enable service providers to quickly deploy managed IP services to enterprise customers.
The new Access Point(R) 1500 router enables service providers and Lucent Advantage BusinessPartners to provide enterprise customers in large regional headquarters or small Point of Presence (POP) locations a range of services from basic routing to the most advanced IP services, including virtual private networks (VPNs), firewall security and bandwidth management.
Baker Consultants, a Dublin, Ireland-based Lucent Advantage BusinessPartner, is deploying the Access Point(R) 1500 in regional sites where firewall/VPN security and IP management are critical needs.
"The Access Point(R) 1500 will allow us to offer our customers increased bandwidth using Lucent's class-based queuing (CBQ) routing technology for high-performance advanced firewall and virtual private network services in one solution," said Ronan Allen, managing director, Baker Consultants. "The integrated CBQ routing gives us the flexibility to assign multiple users and applications different bandwidth policies on the network with the scalability to support up to 5,000 remote VPN tunnels."
The new Access Point(R) 1500 continues Lucent's leadership in IP service routing price performance by enabling customers to add integrated IP access and advanced IP services in one solution," said Joe Raccuglia, senior product manager, Lucent Technologies. "In today's environment, it's important for service providers and large enterprises to deploy revenue-generating IP services without disrupting their existing IP infrastructure."
According to Infonetics Research, worldwide end-user expenditures for managed and unmanaged VPN services are expected to grow 283 percent, from $10.7 billion today to $41 billion in 2005.
The Access Point(R) product line also includes the Access Point(R) QVPN Builder(TM), a powerful, centralized IP VPN, QoS and firewall policy manager enabling service providers to cost effectively deploy, manage and scale site-to-site VPNs and other IP services in large networks. In addition, Lucent VitalNet(TM), a performance and capacity management product in the Lucent Navis(TM) iAssure product family, supports the Access Point(R) 1500 to enable proactive performance and event management.
The Access Point(R) 1500 is priced from $12,000 to $55,000, and features IP forwarding rates of 700Mbps, 3DES encryption rates of 155Mbps and 1,000/5,000 IPSec site-to-site and remote access VPN tunnels.
The Access Point(R) 1500 is supported by Lucent Worldwide Services' RTS (Remote Technical Support) Advantage, which gives service providers and business customers round-the-clock remote diagnostic, problem management, and software upgrade coverage
The Access Point solutions, including the Access Point(R) 300 and 600, are part of the Lucent Service Intelligent(TM) Architecture portfolio, which also includes the Lucent VPN Firewall Brick(TM) family and the SpringTide(TM) IP Service Switches.
