Northern Telecom is targeting US and international telecomms carriers with its Internet Thruway offering. This is a throughput network, which transfers data traffic from voice networks to high speed public data networks.
Internet Thruway is based on several Nortel technologies including its Rapport Dial-up Switch, Magellan Passport data switch, Accessnode data access tool and network management elements.
First to sign up is Southwestern Bell, which will use Thruway as the backbone for a new public data network service, which offers Internet transport completely separated from voice traffic. Nortel also hopes to market Thruway to international telcos.
