Ericsson Shows Ethernet Metro Access Node

Ericsson unveils its new EMN120 Ethernet Metro Access Node, which is designed to serve as a Layer 2 and Layer 3 Gigabit Ethernet aggregation node with optional 10 GE uplinks. The EMN120 expands the Ericsson EDA broadband access portfolio to include Metro Ethernet products and strengthens Ericsson's Full Service Broadband offering.

Ericsson said the new EMN120 complements both the OMS Ethernet Transport portfolio, which tightly couples the packet aggregation capability with Optical/WDM integration for a reliable transmission over fiber, as well as the Redback SmartEdge portfolio, which provides IP Service Intelligence.

EMN120 is dedicated to Ericsson's EDA solution but can also be used for Ethernet aggregation in non-EDA networks.

EMN120 is now commercially available.
