IPITEK Adds New Carrier Class Ethernet Features Designed for Service to Business Parks

November 19 , 2008

CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA -- Integrated Photonics Technology (IPITEK), a leading designer, developer, manufacturer and supplier of Video-Optimized Intelligent Broadband Networks, announced today that it has added a number of new features to its MSP-1GE and MSP-10GE product lines specifically designed to provide high quality Ethernet-based services to business park customers. The features meet and exceed the new standards set forth in the Metro Ethernet Forum’s (MEF) 9, 14, and 17, the IEEE 802-3-2005 and International Telecommunications Union (ITU)Y.1731 Operational, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) Suite to address the OAM requirements needed to offer higher-grade service levels, proactive troubleshooting and monitoring for these business customers.

With the new features, IPITEK’s Carrier Ethernet product line, which includes the MSP-1GE, a customer premise platform; and the MSP-10GE, a powerful Layer 2 aggregation and transport platform, offers an ideal end-to-end network solution for service providers targeting business parks, and the company has been working with its cable MSO customers to bring these MEF-based solutions to the fiber-based higher bandwidth business services typical of office park deployments.

The key new features include:

  • End-to-end Layer 2 monitoring and troubleshooting, using Layer 2 OAM, such as Y.1731, which allows for quick and easy link verification and even fault isolation directly at the Ethernet Layer.
  • Cable TDR measurements between the customer interface and the network interface, enabling service providers to verify and isolate local wiring problems remotely.
  • Single fiber bi-directional optical plug-in diagnostic transceivers that reduce fiber consumption while proactively monitoring power levels of the fiber plant.
  • L2 Tunneling, which helps in transparently extending customers own LAN infrastructure across the WAN by tunneling link protocols normally terminated at the input to the WAN.
  • Per Queue policing, which allows the service provider to sell a rate limited real-time service and an individually rate limited best effort service using a single customer hand-off.
  • Wire-speed loopback of any data port enabling remote verification of customer circuit throughput before deployment or for re-verification during troubleshooting.

All of the above features are now included in IPITEK’s MSP-10GE and MSP-1GE Ethernet service units and are available as software and SFP upgrades to units already deployed.
