IPITEK Intros Carrier Ethernet Platform
IPITEK’s Internet Media Transport division today unveiled a Carrier Ethernet Services Platform (MSP-CES) with circuit emulation, designed as a cost-effective method for cable operators with legacy interfaces to seamlessly transition to an Ethernet-based platform. It was developed in conjunction with several cable operators to help them take advantage of carrier class Ethernet for delivery of voice, video, and data services to their business customers, while still providing a solution that can reliably support traditional TDM traffic.
The MSP-CES is a modular 1RU platform that uses circuit emulation to hold both TDM and Ethernet line cards for Ethernet transport of legacy voice and data. By using line cards instead of a fixed port configuration, IPITEK’s MSP-CES is designed for flexible configuration options, support of both 1 GigE and 10 GigE services in the same chassis, and cost effective and timely support of new protocols.
