Ribbon’s Neptune IP routing portfolio provides the multiservice flexibility required to aggregate and route a vast array of next generation enterprise applications and services. The versatile solution can be tailored to meet the specific needs of any enterprise. The unique capabilities and advantages of Ribbon’s IP routing solutions include:
Converged Multi-Access Edge
Aggregates services delivered from any access technology onto a single network. Providing a full range of connectivity options and supporting real-time Layer 2 and Layer 3 services.
Service-Aware Multi-Service Aggregation and Routing
With a service-oriented approach to routing, traffic is steered over the most appropriate transport technology for any given service. A variety of service levels, from a best-effort service with no performance guarantees to a SLA-backed service, engineered to meet the specific latency, availability, bandwidth, or isolation requirements required for mission-critical applications.
One Network IP Optical Integration
A full set of optical interfaces ranging from simple passive optical components 400G ZR/ZR+ coherent optical pluggables, allows Neptune to support both single layer, hop-by-hop IPoDWDM and multilayer IP and Optical transport. Muse provides multi-layer optimization between the IP and optical layers resulting in a seamlessly integrated end-to-end IP-optical network.
Purpose built to minimize upfront investments, avoid overprovisioning capacity, and align ongoing expenses with business requirements. A high-density, modular design enables pay-as-you grow scalability. Enterprise IT organizations can enable technologies such as Layer 3 VPNs, E-VPN, Segment Routing Traffic Engineering (SR-TE), Path Computational Element (PCE), and FlexEthernet (FlexE) in software for ultimate flexibility, extensibility, and economics. Neptune makes it easy and cost-effective for organizations to add capacity or introduce new technologies over time as requirements evolve.
