SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Riverstone Networks today announced the RS 3000 Optical Metro Access Router, the industry's first compact platform that integrates legacy and optical networks and extends traffic engineering intelligence to the access edge. Featuring MPLS for traffic engineering and versatile connectivity that runs the gamut from WDM to 10/100 Ethernet, the RS 3000 enables the delivery of rich services across any network infrastructure. The RS 3000 allows New Business Internet metro service providers to migrate transparently to next-generation optical networks, and its unmatched feature set gives service providers the control and accountability to turn bandwidth into profits.

"The RS 3000 is the only solution that allows us first-mover advantage in our multi-tenant building deployments while offering the features and versatility to secure our status as the incumbent building carrier, no matter how networks evolve in the future," said Carlo Lalomia, Chief Technology Officer of Intellispace. "It's the only switch router that meets our size constraints of a building basement and yet has the versatility to integrate with any network, from legacy TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) to POS (Packet over SONET) and WDM (Wave Division Multiplexing) fiber."
