Optical communication and IT infrastructure management solutions provider MRV Communications Inc announced on Monday the OptiSwitch 940 (OS940), Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) / 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) multi-port network interface device (NID).

According to the company, the small form-factor (1RU) OS940 features high-performance, non-blocking switching throughput on all four-10GE ports and 12 tri-mode (10/100/1000) GigE interfaces.

The product offers service providers a full suite of carrier-grade Ethernet services along with high-availability, enhanced quality of service, security and operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) support.

The OS940 targets a wide range of aggregation and multi-tenant Carrier Ethernet applications, including business broadband delivery to office parks or buildings such as multiple dwelling units or multiple tenant units, mobile backhaul applications requiring aggregation of data from multiple high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) cell sites and NID applications supporting Metro Ethernet and synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH)/SONET backbone connections.

To help carriers reduce the cost of testing and provisioning advanced services across a network built with equipment from multiple vendors, the device also includes fully implemented IEEE, ITU, IETF standards and Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) specifications.

As part of the OptiSwitch Family, the OS940 is supported by the company's Pro-Vision, an easy to use graphical user interface (GUI) that simplifies end-to-end provisioning, maintenance and management of bonded copper or fibre Carrier Ethernet services, MRV said.

No pricing details were disclosed.
