EION Announces Ultra Rugged MPLS to enable Self-healing Networks

Enterprises and Service Providers can now guarantee delivery of business-critical applications in real time

Ottawa Ontario, Canada - May 24, 2004. EION Inc. is pleased to announce an ultra rugged MPLS solution that, for the first time integrates self-healing algorithms with Layer 2 fault detection and MPLS forwarding. This addition further strengthens the company's vast suite of IP software solutions, and provides powerful protocol capabilities to manage congestion-free networks.

EION's MPLS algorithms provide protection, restoration, and fast re-routing capabilities for Service Providers to deliver highly available mission-critical applications. The modular architecture has Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that can be seamlessly integrated into existing MPLS based products for additional feature capabilities.

"Automatic protection Switching (APS), traditionally deployed in SONET based systems, has been incorporated into the MPLS infrastructure to achieve rapid protection and restoration of services. This solves an urgent requirement of an inside-out protocol centric fault tolerance in addition to outside-in network centric reliability," commented Kalai Kalaichelvan, EION CEO.

Through this enhanced version of MPLS protocol, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) can easily integrate EION's portfolio either in its entirety, or as an enhancement to their existing product functionality. Improved network management, faster delivery of new services, and better resource management will allow service providers to rapidly deliver MPLS enabled solutions with carrier-class robustness.

Other features that make up EION's ultra rugged MPLS solution are: signaling through LDP, CR-LDP, RSVP and RSVP-TE, Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN, IP and MPLS QoS, as well as monitoring and accounting functionalities. EION software protocols work in industry leading operating systems such as VxWorks, Linux, QNX, OSE, Solaris, and with processors such as Intel, IBM, Motorola and Vitesse.
