It is an established leader among metro-focused high-density routers, combining powerful service creation tools, dynamic bandwidth provisioning, and a connection-oriented data collection architecture. The Used Riverstone RS38000 can aggregate or deliver these services over a complete range of optical and legacy network interfaces, including GbE, MPLS-enabled GbE, Fast Ethernet, CWDM, Channelized DS3, Packet over SONET/SDH OC48c, MPLS-enabled Packet over SONET/SDH OC48c/OC12c/OC3c and ATM E3/DS3/OC3c/OC12c interfaces.


The Used Riverstone RS38000 is ideally suited to serve as an MPLS Label Edge Router (LER) or Label Switch Router (LSR), and sits at the critical juncture for extending metro VPN services over a nationwide ATM or MPLS backbone. The 38000 is NEBS compliant and features fully redundant processors, switch fabrics, and power supplies, along with a standards-based implementation of the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP). Overall, the Used Riverstone RS38000 makes the perfect fit for service creation in the most demanding and highest density environments found in today's Metro networks.

Key Applications

  • Aggregate Ethernet, TDM and ATM traffic from metro networks, and support POS/SDH OC-48c uplinks to the Internet core in a single, carrier-class platform

  •  Create or hand off MPLS/Ethernet VPNs, Transparent LAN Services, or Virtual Leased Lines, across an MPLS or ATM core

  • Create cost-effective CWDM/Ethernet metro backhaul or regional transport networks between access rings, POPs, and data centers.

RS 8000/8600

Used, pre-owned, refurbised, new Riverstone networksThe Used Riverstone RS8000 and Used Riverstone RS8600 are high-performance, all-purpose metro routers. Among the most recognized and highly deployed router platforms in the metro, the 8000 and 8600 combine powerful service creation capabilities with a full range of optical and copper interfaces in a compact, NEBS-compliant platform. The Used Riverstone RS8000 and Used Riverstone RS8600 provide an ideal service-provisioning platform for service providers in the metro, with powerful service creation tools like Riverstone's metro-optimized MPLS Layer 2 or 3 tunneling technology, dynamic bandwidth provisioning, and connection-oriented data collection architecture.


The Used Riverstone RS8000 and Used Riverstone RS8600 are best known for their ability to deliver services over the full range of networks found in the metro, including TDM, RPR, Packet over SONET/SDH, ATM and Gigabit Ethernet. The RS 8000 and 8600 already serve as trusted platforms in a diverse range of metro deployments, from Metro Ethernet Aggregation and high-density access to broadband aggregation and content injection, and even as part of class-5 switch replacement solutions in the Telco central office. Overall, Used Riverstone RS8000 and Used Riverstone RS8600 routers are an established, trusted choice wherever the need for IP intelligence is found.

Key Applications

  • Aggregation of access and data center traffic

  • On-demand bandwidth provisioning using hardware-based rate limiting technology with kilobit resolution

  • Create MPLS VPN, virtual leased line, or Transparent LAN services as an MPLS Label Edge Router

  • Aggregate TDM or Ethernet traffic and uplink with Packet over SONET/SDH, ATM, or Gigabit Ethernet

Used Riverstone RS1000 and Used Riverstone RS3000

Used, pre-owned, refurbised, new Riverstone networksThe Used Riverstone RS1000 and Used Riverstone RS3000 are Riverstone's metro access routers. Among the most highly deployed access platforms in the metro, they extend IP service delivery to the metro access edge, featuring Riverstone's metro-optimized MPLS services, full function routing and switching, and dynamic bandwidth provisioning with a connection-oriented data collection architecture. At the same time, the Used Riverstone RS1000 and Used Riverstone RS3000's combination of a compact form factor and high port density saves operational costs and improves service provider margins.


The key to the platform's popularity is its unique ability to deliver Layer 3/2 services to the access edge over either existing TDM or ATM networks or available dark fiber. Service providers have deployed the Used Riverstone RS1000 or Used Riverstone RS3000 to extend the reach of a Metro Ethernet deployment to customers with last-mile TDM access, to offer VLAN-based Transparent LAN services over a wide-area ATM network, or to simply provide fast Ethernet access with Gigabit uplinks. Both the Used Riverstone RS1000 and Used Riverstone RS3000 design feature two flexible media slots that accommodate Gigabit Ethernet, WAN, ATM and Packet over SONET/SDH interfaces.
Key Applications

  • Extending services to the metro access edge

  • On-demand bandwidth provisioning using hardware-based rate limiting technology with kilobit resolution

  • Creating MPLS/Ethernet VPNs, Transparent LAN services, or Virtual Leased Lines at the access edge

  • Delivering services over copper or optical infrastructure - Gigabit and 10/100 Ethernet, T1/E1, T3/E3, ATM, and DWDM

ES 10170

Used, pre-owned, refurbised, new Riverstone networksThe Used Riverstone ES10170 is a new generation of Ethernet aggregation Layer-3 switch designed for wiring closets and Carrier data centers. The Used Riverstone ES10170 can deliver 448 Fast Ethernet + 4 Gigabit Ethernet or 60 Gigabit Ethernet ports at wire-speed in a modular chassis occupying only 5 rack units. This high port density helps save rack space and can decrease operational complexity by reducing the number of deployed network elements. The modular chassis is designed for growth - the Used Riverstone ES10170 can be deployed with as few as 64 Fast Ethernet and 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports, and is expandable up to 448 Fast Ethernet ports or 60 Gigabit Ethernet ports. In addition, the Used Riverstone ES10170 allows network capacity to scale further by supporting 8 Gigabit trunked links over CWDM optical fiber connections.The Used Riverstone ES10170 features full-function hardware-based switching & routing capabilities. It also has an unmatched range of features such as packet filtering, rate limiting, prioritization and accounting which combine to give pinpoint bandwidth control and monitoring.
