               Router switches traffic to pre-configured backup

   Allows identification of which traffic to protect
   Traffic switched to backup and traffic normally on link contend for resources
    using QoS – no traffic is discarded if link is not over-utilized
   Works for POS and gigabit Ethernet

    Provisioning - Months to Minutes


   Backbone capacity increased without truck-rolls
   Market share not impacted by provisioning
   Immediate provisioning for all bandwidth products up-to
    physical network capacity

Immediate fulfillment of customer demands

     Velocity – Composite Links
   Avoid hitting the transmission capacity wall
   Backbone links with 64 times the capacity of our
    competitor on the same transmission network
   No impact to customer or network stability

    Backbone Capacity added in days not months

                        Best generation networking
   Use IP core for converging all services
   Scale services past competitors offerings
   Spend your time creating new services…
       Make €€€€ at the edge of the network
       Save €€€€ at the core of the network

                           Best generation networking
   Next generation public network switch
        Scalability
        Non-stop system and software architecture
        Quality of Service
        Network and Traffic Engineering
   Benefits
        Reduce capital costs
        Stable service velocity
        Increased equipment life cycle

         Faster, stable network expansion
    & dramatic reduction in cost per bit delivered
