Ethos Networks Revolutionizes Packet Transport with High-Capacity Switch.

Ethos Networks Commercial E-80 Ethernet Service Transport Switch Manages Traffic, Guarantees QoS in PBB-TE Networks

HERZELIA, Israel -- Ethos Networks, a pioneer in connection-oriented Ethernet solutions, announces its E-80 Ethernet service transport switch, the latest addition to Ethos' E-series line of purpose-built solutions, designed to deliver an advanced, revenue-generating set of multi-tiered Ethernet services. Now commercially available, the E-80 allows Quality-of-Service (QoS)-enabled services to be delivered over a Provider Backbone Bridges - Traffic Engineering (PBB-TE) network.

With unmatched QoS and traffic engineering capabilities, the E-series switches are optimized to address Ethernet service delivery with high scalability coupled with the highest service assurance. Unlike most switching products in the market, the E-80 was designed from the ground up as a PBB/PBB-TE Carrier Ethernet switch. It delivers programmable traffic management capabilities, supporting flexible future upgrade to Ethos' DynTE[TM] engine, an end-to-end Connection Admission-Control (CAC) mechanism that adapts to traffic conditions in real-time. The E-80 is fully integrated with Ethos' Domain Management System (DMS) to offer dynamic, real-time centralized carrier-grade control. The E-80 also offers an integrated hybrid card combining 1GB and 10 Gb for maximum flexibility.

"Balancing network efficiency, operations efficiency and service determinism has been a constant challenge, resulting in alternate and often conflicting views of centralized versus distributed path selection and quality-of-service decision making," said Mark Seery, Vice President, Switching and Routing, Ovum. "By matching centralized management techniques with distributed real-time quality-of-service information generation and processing, Ethos Networks joins a new generation of equipment suppliers developing new and fresh approaches to delivering the balance of efficiency and determination desired in today's networks."

The E-80 replaces E-60 as a part of Ethos' end-to-end E-series product line, which includes the entry level E-20, high-capacity E-240, and Ethos DMS. E-80 features best-of-breed capabilities for a full carrier-grade solution:

* 80Gb of full non-blocking switching capacity

* Carrier-grade "Five 9s" availability

* Distributed power management

* Adaptive air flow response system for heat management

* ATCA standard chassis and mechanical conformance

E-80 shares a common set of modules with the E-series family to ensure maximum flexibility and "pay as you grow" deployment possibilities. It provides support for a full range of connectivity options, up to120k services and 2 million MAC addresses for multipoint services.

"Ethernet-over-Ethernet is the simplest, most efficient means of service delivery, and with the E-80, carriers can have full control over their network traffic while creating new revenue opportunities and enjoying high customer satisfaction rates," said Hayim Porat, CTO and co-founder of Ethos Networks. "Ethos' newest solution does this by ensuring that all service assurances are strictly met with minimal resources, at every given moment, with full carrier-grade functionality."

About Ethos Networks

Ethos Networks has pioneered connection oriented Ethernet by providing a dramatically enhanced solution for intelligent network traffic engineering. Ethos provides a complete solution including PBB-TE devices and a network management system combining management resource analysis and optimization. Ethos' solution utilizes advanced traffic engineering while employing Ethernet as a single transport technology thus creating a congestion free metro packet network and retaining the advantages of PBB-TE simplicity. The Ethos platform is the first packet transport system of its type developed from the ground up with a service-centric approach. Ethos' carrier-grade transport solution enables the delivery of any network service with strict end-to-end assurances. With Ethos' solution carriers can guarantee end-to-end QoS and offer an unlimited variety of services, enabling the increase of revenues and reduction of the total cost of managing Ethernet networks.
