Mobile Backhaul


Mobile backhaul demarcation with end-to-end service control and SLA monitoring. Go beyond Best Effort Ethernet, over any infrastructure and keep your costs down.

End-to-End QoS: Shape your traffic any way you want with powerful traffic classification, policing, hierarchical scheduling and per-EVC shaping

Flexible Connectivity Options: Rely on flow-based Ethernet NIDs to maximize port utilization for MEF-certified EVPL, E-LAN and E-Tree services over any infrastructure - Fiber, TDM, SONET, DSL, PON or Microwave

Lifecycle Cost Management: Reduce inventories and avoid truck rolls with NIDs that provision Ethernet across any infrastructure and feature pluggable SFP Ethernet converters, fiber/copper combo ports and all-in-one power supplies

Non-Disruptive Upgrade to Carrier Ethernet: Move from Best Effort Ethernet to Carrier Ethernet without overhauling your entire network. Color-sensitive P-bit re-marking ensures metering continuity in color-blind networks. NIDs support legacy and next-gen protocols.

Enhanced Service Assurance: In-Service and Out-of-Service: Manage your service KPIs 24x7x365 with built-in test engines for RFC 2544, Ethernet OAM, fault management, and performance monitoring

Hardware-Based OAM: Faster than software-based OAM, hardware-based OAM is quicker to detect loss of continuity, and detects even a single lost frame. Multi-flow monitoring and line-rate loopback

High Availability: Minimize service downtime and meet availability targets with standard Ethernet ring protection switching, Ethernet linear protection switching and link aggregation

Synchronization over Packet: Protect critical traffic from latency and jitter with powerful timing and synchronization tools, including IEEE 1588v2 and Synchronous Ethernet
