Telcom Operators are looking for efficient ways to provide triple-play services to their residential and business customers in the most cost effective way possible. This requires a multi-service carrier-grade platform: reliable; robust; having guaranteed operational parameters for latency, jitter, throughput, and loss; hot plug scalable; easy to provision; future proof; with fast protection switching, detailed QoS management, and efficient bandwidth management.
The platform should be multi-function (combining aggregation, switching, and transport to reduce hardware costs), able to support global operations at Level 2 (to reduce network complexity and management costs), and be able to maximize efficiency of fiber use with DWDM (to forestall costs of additional fiber installation).
IPITEK is always listening to our customers, and the latest result of that meets all the requirements specified above. Our MSP-CES (Circuit Emulation Services) is a modular small-size 1RU platform that provisions both TDM (T1/E1, T3/E3, OC-3/STM-1), and packet services over an Ethernet transport network. The MSP-CES's modularity enables the customer to choose from a wide range of interface types and capacities to exactly match network requirements and evolution.
The MSP-CES supports multiple synchronization options such as IEEE 1588v2 and Synchronous Ethernet while providing 10G DWDM capacity. In addition, the MSP-CES model complements the MSP-10GE and MSP-1GE models by providing a modular Ethernet ADM multiplexer that creates Metro Ethernet-based transport networks. These networks can scale to 4000 Ethernet E-Line (Pt-Pt) or E-LAN (Multipoint) circuits per network. The use of all optical interfaces provides the ability to combine up to 24 remotely located fiber-attached sites via 1GE links per site onto a 10GE LAN Native Ethernet protected backbone, while only consuming 1RU of rack space and 80 watts of protected DC power.
OAM is a keystone for building service-centric carrier-grade networks. The MSP-CES, MSP-10GE, and MSP-1GE integrate several standards based OAM functions that helps the operator monitor the health of the network and meet the SLA requirements of the carried services. The MSP-CES OAM suite includes IEEE 802.1ag, ITU-T Y.1731, and IEEE 802.3ah. In addition, optical power levels, Ethernet layer statistics and alarms are provided for each interface. Local logs of all command entries and events further simplify trouble shooting. SNMP-v2c notifications are also provided.
