Foundry Demos at Isocore

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and RESTON, Va. -- Foundry Networks(r), Inc. (Nasdaq:FDRY), a performance and total solutions leader for end-to-end switching and routing, today announced successful completion of its participation in Isocore's fall 2006 Leading Edge Code (LEC) interoperability testing. Foundry's NetIron XMR Series of Internet and MPLS core routers will be demonstrated live as part of a multi-vendor interoperability demonstration at Isocore Internetworking Lab in Reston, Va. The demonstration will be held on October 19 at 11:00 am EDT following the 9th MPLS International Conference (MPLS 2006).

Foundry's NetIron XMR Series of Internet and MPLS core routers were tested and verified for a variety of Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN services, such as BGP/MPLS VPN, Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) and Virtual Leased Line (Pseudo-wire) services. The viability of these technologies was verified for the transport of data as well as MPEG encoded streams simulating both high and standard definition Video on Demand (VoD) feeds. Real time Media Delivery Index (MDI) measurements were made to verify successful delivery of such streams over a Carrier Ethernet network. Testing was conducted over one of the world's largest MPLS interoperability test beds including over 11 MPLS vendors and 29 nodes.

"We have a vested commitment to product interoperability, and Foundry's long term relationship with Isocore has proven effective in maturing the MPLS technology, as well as advancing the new Carrier Class Ethernet," said Ken Cheng, vice president and general manager, High End and Service Provider Systems Business Unit for Foundry Networks. "Foundry's NetIron XMR Series of Internet and MPLS core routers delivers a core solution that future-proofs service providers' networks with unparalleled performance, scalability, affordability and resiliency to deliver IPTV and multi-play services."
