Transition Networks Accelerates Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Services with Converge EMS

Transition Networks launched its integrated Carrier Ethernet 2.0 + software defined services (SDS) orchestration solution designed to automate the entire service lifecycle, accelerate the rollout of MEF CE 2.0 services while supporting stringent performance SLAs.

The rollout includes CE 2.0 demarcation devices, access switches and a "Converge EMS" service and resource manager that automates the complete service lifecycle. The Converge EMS features a RESTful API that allows for integration with SDN and other 3rd party applications for truly programmable networks. It open architecture, based on the Amartus Chameleon SDS platform, supports next-generation service delivery workflows.

Transition Networks said its solution offers a unique template-based automated provisioning solution that enables rapid service activation with quicker time to revenue.

“Transition Networks’ integrated CE 2.0 platform delivers unmatched value for service providers, enabling simplified deployment and robust centralized management,” said Kevin Faulds, Director of Product Management at Transition Networks. “A single vendor solution from access to edge goes a long way toward making the management of the service provider network more simple and cost effective.”

Transistion's demarcation devices feature advanced Service OAM (IEEE 802.1ag and ITU Y.1731) Performance and Fault Management for strong performance assurance in business, mobile backhaul and cloud services while reducing operational expenses.

The S4140 demarcation device enables service providers to address growing bandwidth needs for next-generation services. The company’s two new Carrier Ethernet switches, S4212 and S4224, aggregate traffic from demarcation devices for efficient transport to the core network.

For mobile backhaul, Transition also features a unique capability to convert between Synchronous Ethernet and IEEE 1588v2 synchronization methods while maintaining clock accuracy. Additional features include service activation capabilities to assist with circuit turn-up and maintenance and linear and ring protection capabilities for sub-50 millisecond failover providing service redundancy.
