Nortel Networks has launched its Intelligent Internet initiative, which aims to deliver higher levels of security, performance, agility and efficiency.
The initiative incorporates existing products from the Passport, BayStack, Contivity, Shasta and Alteon families of data and Internet switches.
The portfolio also includes the new Alteon Web Switching Module (WSM) and Alteon Switched Firewall System (ASF).
"Data traffic comes off the high-speed enterprise highway and hits the metro bottleneck," said Alan Kember, chief marketing officer, Nortel Networks. "Our Intelligent Internet technology and portfolio will enable customers to break this bottleneck, clearing the congestion."
