Internet service provider EscapeNet plans to deploy new Brocade routers and switches at its new point of presence (PoP) to maximize opportunities from the Australian National Broadband Network (NBN) rollout. The company plans to seize the opportunity for national broadband network, through New South Wales to expand the network to create a new network point scale. National Broadband Network’s fiber access network is much higher than traditional broadband speeds, which makes network infrastructure point quality Internet service providers become more important.

Running the same Brocade Multi-Service IronWare operating system as the large-scale Brocade MLXe Core Routers, the Brocade NetIron CER 2000 Routers and NetIron CES 2000 Switches give EscapeNet carrier-class capabilities and reliability in a single-rack-space form factor. Both the Brocade NetIron CER 2000 and CES 2000 platforms are being deployed with 48 wire-speed 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports and 136 Gbps of forwarding capacity, with additional 10 GbE ports for uplinks to EscapeNet’s MPLS core network.

EscapeNet Stavros Patiniotis founder and Managing Director, said: “Although we do not have any special problems in terms of performance, our network is approaching the point equipment life, and the lack of scalability seriously affected the development of the ideal situation. So we need to be able to deal with a five-fold growth in the next five years, while still cost-effective alternatives to deploy and fully operational.”
