Corrigent Enhances Mobile Backhaul with MPLS Aggregation

Orckit Communications has enhanced its mobile backhaul offering with a new multi-service access switch and cell site gateway. Together with its existing MPLS aggregation switch, this Carrier Ethernet solution enables the migration of low and high-rate TDM services, as well as data services, to a unified MPLS mobile network. This means cell site, hub site and aggregation site gateways are all implemented on the same switching products.

Orckit-Corrigent's mobile backhaul solution is based on its CM-4140 MPLS aggregation switch, CM-11 multi-service access switch and CM-View management system. This solution introduces cost efficiency and technology advantages to the market by enabling the delivery of TDM services over standard and interoperable MPLS networks, in addition to gateway functionality that is implemented on the switches.

  • CM-4140 -- positioned as Hub and/or Aggregation Site Gateway (HSG/ASG). It is equipped with the following key capabilities: Standard and interoperable Layer 2 MPLS; Dense mixture of GE, 10GE and PDH/SDH interfaces
    E1, STM-1/4/16 over packet; CEP, SAToP, CESoP; Synchronous Ethernet, IEEE 1588v2; and 168G switching capacity at 3RU footprint with 250W of power consumption.

  • CM-11 -- a flexible multi-service access switch with E1/T1, FE/GE interfaces that enables the delivery of voice, video and data services in mobile networks. The product is positioned as Cell Site Gateway (CSG) and is equipped with the following key capabilities: E1/T1 and FE/GE interfaces; SAToP, CESoP, ETHoP; Synchronous Ethernet, IEEE 1588v2.

  • CM-View -- a high-end management and service provisioning system, providing "transport-class" management capabilities for mobile networks.
