Bright House Networks deployed the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers as its Carrier Ethernet platform to deliver enhanced video, data, voice and mobile backhaul services throughout its converged network.
The Cisco ASR platform will help Bright House Networks meet its growing bandwidth needs as it adds advanced products and services. The company also will use the platform to continue to expand its high-speed Internet "Road Runner Lightning" service, using DOCSIS 3.0 technology, to all of its residential and business customers.
The new platform uses Cisco’s IOS XR modular software operating system.
Bright House Networks’ Metro Ethernet architecture is certified as fully compliant with the Metro Ethernet Forum’s (MEF) standards (MEF 9 and MEF 14) for Carrier Ethernet.
