Cisco enables delivery of predictable business services
Cisco announced further enhancements to its Internet Protocol Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) architecture designed to enable the development and delivery of business services with predictable performance. The Multi-Service Blade (MSB) for the Cisco XR 12000 Series routing platform features integral, route-aware, firewall and video/voice session border control (SBC) functionality for Cisco TelePresence and other advanced applications. These innovations build on the platform’s secure resource virtualization and continuous systems operation to enable the delivery of multiple services over a single, converged IP infrastructure.

Integration of these functions with the XR 12000 Series Router enables providers to move beyond appliance-based service-level agreement (SLA) management, increasing efficiency of advanced services such as collaboration solutions based on the Cisco TelePresence Meeting Solution. Memory and CPU resources in the MSB are allocated utilizing Secure Virtualization methods pioneered by Cisco for its IOS XR operating system and originally used to implement router resource virtualization and Secure Domain Routers.

The integral firewall on the MSB inspects traffic flows and prevents unauthorized access to protected resources.

Building on the development of a next-generation IP network to enhance SAVVIS’ application infrastructure, SAVVIS, Inc. has adopted the Cisco MSB as the basis of managed security services. SAVVIS’ network, based on the Cisco IP NGN architecture, will further enhance SAVVIS’ ability to deliver information technology (IT) “infrastructure-as-a-service.”

The MSB’s integral SBC provides per-session control and management of IP multimedia traffic based on protocols such as SIP and H.323 for signaling and interoperability. It also supports the TISPAN architecture based on the H.248 protocol enabling distributed signaling and media implementations of session border control.
