Bob Carrick, Broadband Product Manager at Fine Point Networks, commented, "Enhancing our AdvancedTCA* support for the BMS 1000, which we've already sold and deployed to two US based providers, enables Service Providers to offer residential PPPoE Internet services on a fully redundant, up to 72,000 subscriber capacity, and load balancing on a standardized carrier grade communications platform, that we feel only standards-based, modular building blocks from Intel could deliver.
These new devices will have full service-level compatibility with the classic PacketWave systems, as they share the same provisioning model and identical networking features (NAT, Routing, PPPoE, DHCP, etc).
