ADVA Intros 10 Gbps Etherjack Demarcation Device

ADVA Optical Networking introduced an ultra-compact 10 Gbps Ethernet service demarcation and aggregation device that enables the delivery of differentiated Ethernet services up to 10 Gbps with strict service level assurance for carrier and enterprise applications.

The ADVA FSP 150CC-XG210 offers full traffic management and OAM along with the following features:

  • Two 10 Gbps network interfaces plus two slots for access interface modules with hot swap support
  • Variety of service protection options including ITU G.8031 and G.8032 for ring deployments
  • Standards compliant implementation of IEEE 802.3ah EFM link management, IEEE 802.1ag connectivity fault management, ITU Y.1731 performance monitoring, Y.1564 Ethernet service testing and embedded RFC 2544 service testing.

ADVA noted that its ADVA FSP 150CC-XG210 is the first 10 Gbps device to leverage its Etherjack and Syncjack technology, which provide service monitoring and assurance.

"Based on the product's full set of Etherjack and Syncjack functionalities, the deployment possibilities are manifold," commented Stephan Rettenberger, vice president marketing at ADVA Optical Networking. "The new unit can be used in business services, wholesale services, as well as mobile backhaul. It is a powerful demarcation device for these applications and can also be deployed as an aggregation and ENNI solution further back in the network."
