Lucent Technologies has unveiled a portfolio of network products designed to allow Internet service providers (ISPs) to offer a range of service quality levels based on how much a customer pays.
The products could do away with the "one-size-fits-all" approach to Internet access provision, allowing ISP's to guarantee multiple levels of service based on who a user is and what they are doing, the company said.
Among the new offerings is the PacketStar IP Switch, an intelligent Layer 3/Layer 4 WAN routing switch that is due to ship to network providers in the third quarter.
The switch will enable ISP's to offer a low cost service for casual web surfers and a premium service for businesses. The portfolio also includes the PathStar Access Server, an IP server that handles multiple traffic types, ISDN and ADSL.
Priced at about #200 per line, the device costs about half as much as the multiple exisiting products needed to perform the same functions, according to Lucent.
