Laurel Networks to Demo Triple Play Capabilities at CES(December 20, 2004)
Featured in the "Living Room" of the DSLHome, Laurel's ST200 B-RAS (broadband remote access server) will serve up video on demand, broadcast television, and dynamically-tunable, high-speed Internet services. The demonstration will showcase the Laurel router's ability to provide the wire-speed performance and sophisticated TR-059 QoS (quality of service) required to simultaneously deliver high-quality video as well as other high-throughput services desired by today's network-savvy consumer.
As part of the demonstration, Laurel will also give booth visitors the ability to change the throughput capacity of their Internet connection dynamically. Via a web portal tied to the Laurel router, users will be able to sample advanced turbo button functionality to adjust the speed of their web browsing connection with no impact on TV video quality. "DSL service providers are looking to expand the services they can offer consumers beyond high speed Internet. Being able to reliably deliver broadcast video and video on demand is a competitive requirement for these providers and will allow them to better compete against cable industry vendors for consumer dollars. Laurel's demonstration in the DSL Forum booth allows us to showcase our platform's ability to cost-effectively deliver these services for service providers," said Steve Vogelsang, vice president of marketing and co-founder, Laurel Networks.
