NSN Integrates Accedian's Ethernet Demarcation Device

Accedian Networks announced a partnership with Nokia Siemens Networks to offer service providers a solution to assure high performance of IP/Ethernet networks. Specifically, Nokia Siemens Networks has integrated Accedian Networks' MetroNID demarcation device, and its MetroNODE 10GE Ethernet Operations Administration and Maintenance (OAM) aggregation platform with their solutions such as Mobile Backhaul, Carrier Ethernet Transport and Multiservice IP Backbone.

"The data deluge in mobile networks is quite a challenge for mobile service providers," said Martin Brundert, Head of Solutions Management for Network Systems at Nokia Siemens Networks. "Therefore, we made Accedian devices an integral part of our solutions with fully verified interoperability between our base stations and Accedian network elements covering the entire backhauling network. Our solutions help customers to verify and maintain the performance of packet networks. This significantly improves the Smartphone user experience."
