  • Service providers are facing the cost per bit and the revenue per bit rapidly decreasing. On the access side as well things like dial access and DSL for fixed revenue are increasingly price competitve. Service providers want to deliver new value-added IP services such as the ones listed here to gain marginal revenue out of their infrastructure and customer base.
  • WE think our customers need a business quality IP network. What’s a business quality IP network?… It’s one that enables our customers to provide the services that will fuel not just their top line but also their bottom line. It’s one that is ubiquitous and provides connectivity between users AND networks. It’s one that has the performance required to enable a variety of services. This includes speed, capacity, security, and reliability. AND, it’s one that makes efficient use of all network assets. The days of “just throwing bandwidth” at the problem are no longer practical with the realities of today’s capital constraints. Finally, it’s one where the management and provisioning of the network is simple and dynamic and driven from the intelligent services layer.
  • Authentication: For secure access control To control access to valuable network assets on the SpringTide 5000 authenticates users as they request connections and then authorizes their access to specific destinations. These functions employ standard RADIUS-based authentication and authorization techniques in order to leverage existing networks and operator skill sets.
