Telco Systems introduced a 10GE demarcation Ethernet/MPLS network interface device (NID) – a leap forward in 10GE Carrier Ethernet and MPLS service delivery for service providers and mobile operators. The product boasts 4 x 10GE plus 12 x 1GE ports with a total of 52GE capacity, in a 1RU, half rack width form factor.
Telco Systems said its ultra‐compact design is the densest and most cost effective 10GE demarcation device in the Carrier Ethernet market. Significantly, it offers per-port support for both Carrier Ethernet and IP/MPLS transport at no additional licensing cost.
Some key features include:
- Sub 50msec restoration over Ethernet and MPLS in ring or mesh topologies (G.8031, G.8032, FRR)
- Hardware‐based OAM and embedded test tools (RFC2544, Y.1564) to assure service delivery.
- Supports for all four MEF CE 2.0 services over Ethernet
- IP/MPLS built into the product and license free.
