Telco Systems’ T-Metro 8100 is a next-generation, high-density, standalone service aggregation platform providing carrier Ethernet 2.0, MPLS, IP (Layer 3), and SDN (NETCONF). T-Metro 8100 offers massive service scalability, carrier class resiliency, and an industry-leading features like QoS and OAM (operations, administration and management).
This best-in class service switch allows carriers to offer 100GE connectivity and aggregation to meet the growing pressure for more bandwidth and lower price per gigabit. With 960G capacity in a compact 3RU chassis, the T-Metro 8100 provides a wide range of port density, management and resiliency making it the platform of choice for wide-scale carrier Ethernet adoption, implementation, and network transformation.
T-Metro 8100 is designed for service providers who need high reliability and flexibility to aggregate multiple services over 1GE, 10GE, 40GE and 100GE port rates in a metro Ethernet environment. It offers a full MPLS provider edge (PE) solution with integrated, advanced MPLS/HVPLS and IP/MPLS capabilities, and multi rate ports flexibility between 100GE, 40GE, 10GE or 1GE ports. By using 100GE, carriers can gradually move from dark fiber xWDM transport to active fiber network and lower their total cost of ownership.
100GE MPLS Cloud-based Service Solution
Cloud-based services pose new challenges for service providers. T-Metro 8100 addresses these challenges using MPLS to provide low latency L2VPN, high availability, and end-to-end service assurance using advanced OAM tools and increased scalability.
T-Metro 8100 complements the T-Metro 8000 Aggregation and Cloud Gateway Family by driving high capacity 100GE/40GE rings into the aggregation layer to support high-bandwidth cloud applications and mobile backhaul networks. With the addition of T-Metro 8100, Telco Systems offers service providers cloud-to-edge and cloud-to-cloud end-to-end services, assuring an exceptional level of experience for the end user while optimizing carrier resources.
T-Metro 8100 provides comprehensive solutions and services with native IP support, including Virtual Routing and Forwarding VRF lite, IP static routing, and dynamic routing protocols like OSPF and BGP. T-Metro 8100 also supports Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) for dynamically distributing network configuration parameters, and Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP).
The T-Metro 8100 leverages Telco Systems’ field-proven, carrier grade BiNOX operating system – common among all its platforms – to provide a robust and advanced multi-layer software platform to support administration, and maintenance requirements. Hardware based QoS allows for very high QoS granularity independent of physical ports or services, while an embedded test head* supports end-to-end SLA measurement and assurance. It also offers advanced OAM, supporting hundreds of services with ITU-TY.1731 SLM, RFC 2544 and Y.1564 measuring the network performance.
T-Metro 8100 provides full SDN support with comprehensive adoption of NETCONF, the network configuration protocol, and YANG, its data modeling language. It also supports OpenFlow 1.3.1 with a simple software upgrade to ViNOX OS (available separately).
