Riverstone Networks, a provider of Carrier Ethernet solutions, announced recently the availability of Hierarchical Virtual Private LAN Service (HVPLS) across both its RS and 15000 product lines. According to the press release, this enhancement allows service providers to scale either up or down to cost-effectively deliver more reliable business and triple-play services.

The HVPLS technology extends the capabilities of MPLS-based Ethernet, giving service providers the added reliability and scalability necessary to serve hundreds of thousands or even millions of subscribers dependably. It also provides a more economical means of delivering high quality video services by pushing video packet replications for multicasting further out to the edge, added the company.

In addition to adding HVPLS, Riverstone has boosted the overall operational efficiency and network resiliency of its products. These enhancements include boosting the introduction of double density line cards on the 15000 platform; support for dual-homed edge and MTU devices; extended troubleshooting with HVPLS OAM support; and Dorado Software's Redcell configuration management.

Riverstone added that the combination of enhancements will allow carriers to reduce their expenses while enabling new, premium services and service bundles, including advanced VPNs and residential triple play applications.
