Telco Systems (News - Alert), which provides Carrier Ethernet and MPLS access services, recently showcased a significant industry milestone at the MPLS and Ethernet World Congress in Paris.
The EdgeGenie Service Management System from Telco Systems successfully managed the services in an MPLS network over 3rd party core devices. This milestone addresses one of the major concerns associated with managing multiple services across multiple vendors and multiple technologies.
Telco Systems’ EdgeGenie Service Management System allows planning, managing, monitoring and maintaining Ethernet services. Operators can model “what if” scenarios to predict how network changes will affect service delivery. With its next-generation GUI navigational design, the solution streamlines and simplifies complex operational procedures for network operators.
The interoperability tests were carried out using G.8032 Ethernet rings on an MPLS VPLS cloud. It created a combined MPLS VPLS and Ethernet Layer 2 interworking scenario, which was monitored by EdgeGenie.
During the testing, Telco Systems solutions achieved carrier grade switchover times below 50 ms when the signal reached a defined degradation threshold across multiple vendors’ equipment. EdgeGenie monitored the changes of the service path in real time.
This achievement is a breakthrough in managing multi-vendor Ethernet/MPLS services end-to-end across third-party core equipment, according to company officials. Providers can now use Telco Systems’ MPLS solution at the edge with other core vendors using point and click service management.
The service provides both LoS and CFM protection over interconnected MPLS and Ethernet rings, allowing service providers to maintain a highly reliable and dynamically responsive network with end-to-end service assurance and service-protection.
”By implementing a seamless interoperating Ethernet and MPLS network using unified service management, carriers can easily add new services to their customers while lowering their operating expenses,” said Nir Daube, vice president of product line management for Telco Systems, in a statement.
Earlier this year, Dell' (News - Alert) Oro Group predicted that the L2-3 Ethernet Switch market is set to hit $28B in 2016. The growth will be primarily driven by sales of Ethernet switches optimized for larger data center deployments. Rajani Baburajan is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
