Telco Systems Intros High-Density MPLS/Ethernet Demarc for Mobile Backhaul

 Telco Systems introduced its next generation mobile backhaul Carrier-Ethernet/MPLS demarcation device packing 12x1G ports and 8xE1/T1 Circuit Emulation Services (CES) into a compact format (1RU by half shelf width) suitable for small cell deployments.

The new T-Marc 3312SC demarc device supports the extension of MPLS to the cell site, enabling mobile operators to take full advantage of their MPLS networks for engineering and managing their backhaul infrastructure. . It supports IEEE 802.1ag Connectivity Fault Management (CFM), ITU-T Y.1731, IEEE 802.3ah, EFM-OAM, RFC 2544-based embedded test heads and Y.1564.  Telco Systems’ operating system also supports Hierarchal QoS (HQoS) and offers a suite of resiliency protocols.

In addition, Telco Systems said its  T-Marc 3312SC prepares the provider’s network for Software Defined Networks (SDN), as it supports a wide range of management protocols including NETCONF, which is mandatory to support OpenFlow standard. It is also integrated in the company’s service management system, EdgeGenie, to allow dynamic elastic service management and control plane separation.
