MRV Adds OptiSwitch Carrier Ethernet NID

MRV Communications introduced its OptiSwitch 940 Gigabit Ethernet / 10Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) multi-port network interface device (NID) for connecting and monitoring enterprise Carrier Ethernet Services and mobile backhaul services. The small form-factor (1RU) OS940 features high-performance, non-blocking switching throughput on all four-10GE ports and 12 tri-mode (10/100/1000) GigE interfaces.

The platform targets a wide range of aggregation and multi-tenant Carrier Ethernet applications, including business broadband delivery to office parks or buildings such as multiple dwelling units or multiple tenant units, mobile backhaul applications requiring aggregation of data from multiple high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) cell sites, and NID applications supporting both Metro Ethernet and synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH)/SONET backbone connections where network failover support is required.
