Mobile Backhaul Operators
Wireless carriers are competing for customers on the promise of mobile video services, music download and other data intensive applications. To fulfill the bandwidth requirements, wireless carriers are deploying 3G-based networks such as High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) and Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO). At the same time it is recognized that transport equipment accounts for 25% of the cost of building out backhaul infrastructure.
IPITEK is always listening to our customers, and the latest result is an industry-leading solution optimized for mobile backhaul applications and technologies (2/3/4G) backed by a wide range of synchronization options (e.g., Sync-E and IEEE1588v2) and 10G DWDM transport. Our MSP-CES (Circuit Emulation Services) is a modular small-size 1RU platform that provisions both TDM (T1/E1, T3/E3, OC-3/STM-1), and packet services over an Ethernet transport network. The MSP-CES's modularity enables the customer to choose from a wide range of interface types and capacities to exactly match network requirements and evolution.
The MSP-CES supports multiple synchronization options such as IEEE 1588v2 and Synchronous Ethernet while providing 10G DWDM capacity. As a result, the MSP-CES is the industry-only solution that meets the stringent and requirements of all mobile technology generations such as GSM, UMTS, CDMA2000, and the emerging WiMAX and LTE standards. In addition, the MSP-CES model complements the MSP-10GE and MSP-1GE models by providing a modular Ethernet ADM multiplexer that creates Metro Ethernet-based transport networks. These networks can scale to 4000 Ethernet E-Line (Pt-Pt) or E-LAN (Multipoint) circuits per network. The use of all optical interfaces provides the ability to combine up to 24 remotely located fiber-attached sites via 1GE links per site onto a 10GE LAN Native Ethernet protected backbone, while only consuming 1RU of rack space and 80 watts of protected DC power.
OAM is a keystone for building service-centric carrier-grade networks. The MSP-CES integrates several standards based OAM functions that helps the operator monitor the health of the network and meet the SLA requirements of the carried services. The MSP-CES OAM suite includes IEEE 802.1ag, ITU-T Y.1731, and IEEE 802.3ah. In addition, optical power levels, Ethernet layer statistics and alarms are provided for each interface. Local logs of all command entries and events further simplify trouble shooting. SNMP-v2c notifications are also provided.
