APERTO EXPANDS PACKETWAVE OFFERINGS

Aperto Networks Inc. has expanded its PacketWave 802.16 class broadband wireless products to include a new base station called the PacketWave 760. The 760 is based on the same architecture as the PacketWave 1000, but it features pay-asyou- grow pricing. Aperto says providers don’t pay for ports or stackable modules until they have the traffic and subscribers to justify buying more infrastructure. The 760 also performs as an access point that may be backhauled to a central site using PacketWave 600 Series point-to-point links or function as a cell-within-a-sector of a PacketWave 1000.

The company says service providers can remotely manage their base station capacity use and pre-plan for subscriber capacity, and get ROI in less than six months.

The PacketWave 760 is available for the 2.5 GHz, 3.5 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, and will operate in the same sector and cell as Aperto’s WiMAX Forumcertified base stations and subscriber equipment, when they are introduced in the coming year. The PacketWave system provides a single platform for delivering converged data, voice and video services over an IP network.

QUARRY LAUNCHES WEB-BASED CUSTOMER SELF-MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Quarry Technologies Inc., supplier of security service routers, has unveiled its new iQCSM Web-based customer self-management system. The company says its iQCSM application provides unprecedented visibility into provider-based security services by letting customers view and modify existing policies, and add security services and users through a customized Web portal.

Managers can modify security policies for all sites from a single location. The customer accesses the iQCSM with a standard Web browser; an XML tool kit also is given to the service provider so it can customize or brand the interface for customers.

The Quarry iQCSM customer self-management system also allows enterprise customers to automatically provision new services such as firewalls; to autoprovision bandwidth on demand; and generate reports.

The Quarry iQ-series Security Service Routers allow service providers to offer network-based security services to IP, MPLS and Frame Relay VPNs, extending the enterprise security perimeter to the edge of the service provider’s network.
