Marconi, has broadened its existing service provider platform with its family of Subscriber IP Services Switches, which integrate with Marconi’s existing platforms.

The SSX family of switches enable service providers to migrate from the current generation of flat-rate Internet access services to differentiated IP services, which promise the ability to generate higher revenues. Self-provisioning and billing features of the SSX are aimed at reducing the costs to service providers of delivering their services.

The SSX-700, SSX-1400 and advanced networking switches also provide next-generation subscriber aggregation features that will scale to more than 100,000 subscribers in a single chassis and deliver at wire speed such IP services as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), IP Class of Service and ATM quality of service prioritisation, authentication, authorisation, and IP Security.

“As the telecommunications and ISP markets in the Middle East become increasingly competitive, providers need solutions that enable them to offer fast, reliable and customer-centric services. Marconi’s SSX switch family brings to the region the technology necessary to create dynamic, on-demand services that are tailored to the region’s users,” said Marconi’s regional director of Middle East Operations, John Marshall.

“The addition of the SSX products to Marconi's existing portfolio increases service provider opportunities to offer new services that increase revenue streams while simultaneously lowering operational costs. The subscriber auto provisioning capabilities of the SSX products combined with Marconi's multi-service switches will permit millions of end users to receive personalised services dynamically to meet their broadband needs. The SSX family is a huge step in providing the tools to ASP's and corporate customers who require remote application delivery over the growing broadband WAN infrastructure,” said Joe Pajer, executive vice president and general manager of Marconi’s Broadband Routing & Switching Products Division.
