Axerra Networks, the leading developer of Multiservice over Internet Protocol (MSoIP) products, announced today the signing of a System Integration and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Agreement with Ericsson AB. The agreement will allow Ericsson full rights to distribute and support Axerra's award-winning AXN AXN Accion (Spanish: Action)
AXN Action Network

Axerra's AXN family plays a key role in rounding out Ericsson's IP infrastructure product family, which includes world-recognized products for use at the core and in packet-based metro networks. Axerra's AXN multiservice capabilities complement Ericsson's existing PBN, particularly the AXI AXI Automated X-Ray Inspection (electronics)
AXI Association Xpertise Inc (Calgary, AB, Canada)
AXI Ada to X-Window System Interface 520 and AXI 580 IP Core Routers. Ericsson's PBN furnishes a unified backbone for the new public network, converging voice and data, wireless and wireline services. The AXN's MSoIP technology now enables service providers to cost-efficiently deploy legacy services, including Leased Line and Frame Relay, alongside emerging IP services on Packet Backbone Networks and Metro-Ethernet networks. As part of the agreement, the two companies will also explore cooperative technology opportunities to develop integrated MSoIP solutions.
The AXN Multiservice IP Concentrators were adopted by Ericsson only after a series of rigorous interoperability tests with the PBN portfolio. These series of tests serve as a positive proof-point for the Quality of Service- (QoS-) enabled robustness of Axerra's MSoIP technology. One of the services tested as part of MSoIP interoperability is the Circuit Emulation Service over IP (CESoIP(TM)), which has been submitted as an Internet Draft to the Pseudo-Wire Emulation Edge-to-Edge (PWE3) working group in the Internet Engineering Task Force (c/o Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI), Reston, VA, www.ietf.org) Founded in 1986, the IETF is a non-membership, open, voluntary standards organization dedicated to identifying problems and opportunities in IP data networks and proposing technical solutions to the (IETF See Internet Engineering Task Force.

Axerra Network's AXN Multiservice IP Concentrator, being displayed at Axerra's stand (Hall 27, Booth C16/2) during CeBIT in Hanover, Germany, defines a new class of products that enables service providers to offer revenue-rich legacy services such as private Leased Lines (LL), Frame Relay (FR), Circuit Switched Voice (CSV), and ATM, alongside emerging IP services such as VoIP and IP-VPN, all over next-generation IP and IP/MPLS IP/MPLS Internet Protocol/Multi-Protocol Label Switching network. One of the most exciting innovations for today's service provider market, the AXN and MSoIP are truly changing the business model for unified IP, IP/MPLS, and Metro-Ethernet deployments.
