Overture, a company that deals in Carrier Ethernet services, recently announced that Overture 4000cp, an Ethernet demarcation device, is now available. MEF (News - Alert)-certified for E-Line, E-LAN, and E-Tree operations, Overture 4000cp delivers hundreds of Mbps of Ethernet services to Mbps to business customers and mobile towers.
“Our customers asked us to bring to market a new edge solution that can cost-effectively bond up to 24 copper pairs for their high-bandwidth applications. The catch was that it had to incorporate all of the advanced service features and powerful management capabilities of our other EoC and optical products,” said Vijay Raman, vice president product management and marketing, Overture. “With our new 4000cp, service providers can quickly capitalize on unrealized revenue opportunities by extending high-speed performance assured Ethernet services beyond their current optical boundaries.”
Overture 4000cp extends a carriers’ service reach beyond their existing optical switching footprint - increasing the revenue potential while reducing OPEX (News - Alert). It supports service delivery at speeds ranging from 1 Mbps to more than 300 Mbps over single bonded copper infrastructure. As with other products from Overture, the 4000cp incorporates automated pair bonding capabilities for 24 pairs at up to 15 Mbps per copper pair to expedite service turn up and eliminate errors typically associated with manual configuration.
“Providers today are looking for innovative solutions that allow them to tap into new revenue streams while reducing costs and without introducing new layers of complexity,” said Stan Hubbard, senior analyst, Heavy Reading. “Solutions like the Overture 4000cp that can help carriers magnify return from readily available copper networks yet reduce capital expenditures are the ones that will succeed in the market.”
Meanwhile, Overture recently participated in a webinar hosted by Heavy Reading senior analyst Stan Hubbard. The webinar explored the rapidly emerging role of metro software-defined networks (SDNs) enriched by new software orchestration systems, multi-layer packet-optical transport systems, photonic switching systems and virtualized services edge platforms in the Carrier Ethernet Edge to usher in a new era of services and accelerated innovations.
