Nokia Siemens Networks and Juniper Networks (NYSE, JNPR), through their Carrier Ethernet Solutions joint venture, have unveiled Carrier Ethernet Transport 2.0 (CET). Designed to enable operators to balance capacity and cost in their networks, CET 2.0 includes two new Ethernet access switches from Nokia Siemens Networks.

The two new switches, the A-Series 1200 and 1210, offer higher capacity and lower cost to the Ethernet access network, say the companies. CET 2.0 also includes new features for Nokia Siemens Networks’ ASPEN network management system. The Nokia Siemens Networks technology is paired with Juniper’s MX Series of routers. Together, CET 2.0 will provide fixed and mobile service providers with reduced operational costs, faster time to market for new services, and advanced visibility into their network operations, Nokia Siemens Networks and Juniper assert.

CET 2.0 is designed for operators that offer business and residential services as well as fiber mobile backhaul. It aims to bring operators closer to fully integrated and managed end-to-end Carrier Ethernet Transport. Correspondingly, ASPEN adds the Connection Analyzer capability, which tracks performance and enables fault isolation, enabling the service provider to monitor performance and availability according to service level agreements. It also features alarm management capabilities that the companies assert are unique to the packet-based network niche.
