Overture released a high density 10 gigabit optical Ethernet Access Device (EAD).
Key features include:
- Rich service assurance – A full suite of CE2.0 demarcation tools, hierarchical QoS, and an sFlow monitoring agent; layer 3 features including RIP, NAT, and multicast eliminate the need for CPE router for many IP services.
- Capacity – Non-blocking 64Gbps switching capacity, full line rate classification on four 10GigE and 24 1GigE ports, support for up to 256 EVCs, 32k MAC addresses, and 4096 QoS classification rules addresses aggregation and ENNI demarcation applications.
- Flexible deployment options – Deployable in both ring and point-to-point architectures, and is a state-of-the-art 10GigE demarcation device. Its high performance switching on all 10GigE and 1GigE interfaces supports high-density aggregation and router offload applications. Additional flexibility also comes from the 65F10’s integrated universal AC and DC combo power supply.
- Timing precision – Hardware-based OAM and exacting IEEE1588v2 implementation backed by nanosecond accuracy for mobile synchronization, precision one-way delay measurements, and less than three microseconds of latency delivers high-powered performance for financial and mobile backhaul applications.
- Reliability – Support for G.8031, G.8032v1 and G.8032v2 rings, as well as link aggregation create highly resilient network topologies; extremely low-power and extended operating temperature range ensure high service availability.
- Ready for Network Virtualization and Software-Defined Services – The Overture 65F10 joins the Overture 65, 6500 and Ensemble OSA as a member of the Overture Open Service Delivery family. It is the first 10Gig EAD ready for network virtualization and software-defined services.
“We understand that service providers need to economically address ongoing bandwidth capacity challenges, while also finding ways to optimize service creation, activation, and assurance,” said Keith Donahue, vice president of Product Management, Overture. “The Overture 65F10 along with Ensemble OSA allows CSPs to more easily leverage the benefits of performance-assured Carrier Ethernet 2.0 in an extremely cost effective package today and provide a straightforward path to network virtualization and software-defined services when they are ready.”
