SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Redback Networks, Inc.(Nasdaq:RBAK), a leading provider of advanced networking solutions, today announced the Connection Manager, a powerful provisioning tool that enables carriers and service providers to provision optical based services dynamically on the Redback(R) SmartEdge(TM) platform in a matter of seconds. This is a significant shift from today's legacy provisioning systems that can take up to 60 days to provision new services.

The Connection Manager allows users to leverage the advanced optical networking capabilities of the SmartEdge platform by reducing time-to-market, operational costs, shelf space, and by making fault identification easier. In today's expanding optical networking market, shorter provisioning intervals are a compelling competitive advantage. The Connection Manager works in conjunction with the Redback SmartEdge platform and the powerful NetOp Network Management System and forms the basis for extending provisioning control to the end user, enabling automated customer network management of optical based services.

"Redback's Connection Manager provides significant advantages over other provisioning solutions available in the optical market today. Its capabilities will enable service providers to more efficiently and quickly deliver services to their customers. It is critical to the networks of the future that traffic be dynamically provisioned and controlled. The capabilities that the Connection Manager provides is an important component of these network functions," says John Booth, Director of Technology Planning at Genuity, Inc.
