Three of these service providers have made initial purchases with plans to use the SmartEdge Router in their production networks in the future.“Having one of the top three IP development teams in the industry has enabled us to develop and deliver capabilities in this platform that are unheard of in today’s traditional IP routers, allowing us to define a new level of IP routing”, said Georges Antoun, senior vice president of marketing and product management at Redback Networks. “The product is distinguished by a number of features for service providers focused on delivering highly reliable IP services today, while maintaining total unique programmability to support new IP services in the future.
