High Wycombe, England (ots/PRNewswire) - Both the Tellabs(R) 6325
Edge Node and the Tellabs(R) 6315 Metro Ethernet Node successfully
demonstrated interoperability at the multi-vendor carrier Ethernet
interoperability test completed by EANTC (European Advanced
Networking Test Center). Following the test, Tellabs is participating
at the live interoperability showcase at CEWC (Carrier Ethernet World
CEWC is the official conference of the Metro Ethernet Forum
organised by IIR in Madrid, Spain, September 26-29, 2006. At the
conference Tellabs also announced the Carrier Ethernet Certification
by Iometrix of the Tellabs 6325 node, as well as the launch of the
node's Feature Pack 1.1.
The CEWC 2006 interoperability event verified multi-vendor Carrier
Ethernet infrastructures offering business and residential services.
This test explored major new MEF and IEEE standards for the first
time, and implemented more advanced services in the test network.
Equipment vendors verified real-world implementations of Carrier
Ethernet standards and improved key interoperability aspects.
The Tellabs 6325 Edge Node is an award winning (1), compact
Next-Generation Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (NG-SDH) node with very
high density. With FP1.1 the Tellabs 6325 node becomes part of
Tellabs(R) AssuredEthernet(SM) solution as it adds another key
application to its capabilities: the delivery of carrier-class data
services. The Tellabs 6325 node offers hard Quality of Service (QoS)
at minimum bandwidth consumption with Multi-Protocol Label Switching
(MPLS)-based Ethernet. Furthermore, the 1U high Tellabs 6325 node
FP1.1 provides features expected in a fully-featured Multi-Service
Provisioning Platform (MSPP) including Multiplex Section Protection
(MSP) 1+1 network protection, redundant matrices, power and
synchronisation. All this enables carriers to cost-effectively
transform the way networks are built and to offer new profitable
services to end-users.
During the award ceremony on Tuesday, September 26th at the
Carrier Ethernet World Congress, Iometrix test laboratories certified
that the Tellabs 6325 Edge Node operating at the User Network
Interface (UNI) delivers Ethernet Private Line (EPL), Ethernet
Virtual Private Line (EVPL) and Ethernet-Local Area Network (E-LAN)
services compliant with the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) MEF 9 and MEF
14 technical specifications. Both the Tellabs 6325 node and the
Tellabs 6315 node now provide the assurance of this certification and
are strong network migration solutions for carriers world-wide.
