TELCO SYSTEMS EXPANDS T5C PRODUCT LINE.



Telco Systems, Foxboro, Mass., has expanded its IP product family to include a 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch designed to aggregate traffic from the customer premise onto a carrier's IP network. As the newest member of the company's successful T5C product line, the T5C XG <http://telco.com/int/index/en/prodbycat/prod/108> has been designed with OAM (operations, administration, and maintenance) capabilities to ease the management of triple play services across the access network.

"As enterprise customers demand better service level agreements (SLA), service providers need to find ways to increase service availability and ensure service quality. Ethernet OAM features provide service providers the means to address those challenges and provide carrier-grade services over the Ethernet infrastructure," said Avi Cohen, vice president, Business Development & Marketing. The T5C-XG supports service assurance using industry-standard OAM tools including IEEE 802.1ag Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) and IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, New York, www.ieee.org) A membership organization that includes engineers, scientists and students in electronics and allied fields.  802.3ah Ethernet in the First Mile Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM), also known as IEEE 802.3ah, is a collection of protocols specified in IEEE 802.3, defining the Ethernet in the Access networks, i.e. First/Last Mile.  (EFM (Ethernet in the First Mile) Using Ethernet to provide connectivity from the customer to the carrier. See 802.3ah.  OAM).

The T5C-XG's high performance, carrier-class Ethernet switching functions for IP video and traffic aggregation enable the service provider to future-proof their network infrastructure as consumer demand for these services increases. The device features enhanced QoS tools that support multiple services for multiple customers while allowing service providers complete control over traffic traversing the access network to meet different SLA levels.

"With the growing demand for triple play services and the resulting network bottlenecks that can significantly impact customer service, we saw a great market opportunity for us to introduce a 10 Gig Ethernet switch to alleviate the traffic issues at the network's edge," continued Cohen cohen

The new T5C-XG Carrier Ethernet switch provides the following features:

* Two 10 Gigabit XFP network ports for either protected services or link aggregation=20

* An expansion slot supporting two additional 10 Gigabit Ethernet network ports for ring configurations and scalability

* 24 SFP-based user ports which can support either 100Mbps or Gigabit Ethernet

* Fast forwarding bandwidth (64Gbps)

* Jumbo frame support

* 32k MAC addresses

* Front-facing access

* Redundant AC and DC power supplies and pluggable fan tray

Initially available with Layer 2 capabilities, the device can be upgraded to Layer 3 with no hardware change. This is accomplished with Telco Systems' BiNOS (BATM/Telco Systems Inter-Networking Operating System), a robust operating system that supports the OAM, management, QoS, and security performance requirements demanded by Carrier Ethernet networks.

The T5C-XG has successfully participated in an interoperability test with 15 vendors organized by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC EANTC European Advanced Networking Test Center ). The EANTC Mobile Backhaul Interoperability Showcase will be on public display during the MPLS (1) (MultiProtocol Lambda Switching) The earlier name for GMPLS. See GMPLS.
