Hello to everyone.
One of our SP customers is planning to upgrade their traditional ATM DSLAM to IP DSLAM to enhance customer services and integrate video on ADSL.
They need to upgrade their BRAS actually based on ATM interfaces. They don't have that much to invest so they are willing to buy not more than an ASR1006 whit 10G Processor and 10 gigabit ports.
Let's go now to my question. The PPPoE sessions (from the new DSLAMs) will terminate to the BRAS (ASR1006). Once the user receive the IP address from the BRAS after authentication, video traffic from a local Video Server can reach the customer directly (not passing trough the BRAS) or still need to go back to the customer passing trough the ASR1006? What I'm afraid of are the performance and the number of subscribers.
The DSLAM, BRAS and video servers are all connected in LAN.
Thank you in advance.
