MARCH 24, 2010 -- Orckit Communications Ltd. in Tel Aviv, Israel, has upgraded its mobile backhaul offering to combine gateway functionality on Orckit-Corrigent’s CM-4140 MPLS aggregation switch with the company's new CM-11 multi-service access switch and cell site gateway.
Together, this carrier Ethernet solution enables the migration of low and high-rate TDM services, as well as data services, to a unified MPLS mobile network. Cell site, hub site, and aggregation site gateways are implemented on the same switching products.
“Having realized the full impact of smartphones on network performance, mobile operators are starting to build their next generation networks with tremendous focus on data delivery and investment levels,” says Sharon Mantin, vice president of marketing at Orckit-Corrigent. “Since Orckit-Corrigent specializes in Layer 2 MPLS switching coupled with circuit emulation and synchronization technologies, the company is in an excellent position to fulfill the vast potential for the mobile backhaul market.”
Orckit-Corrigent’s mobile backhaul solution is based on the CM-4140 MPLS aggregation switch, CM-11 multi-service access switch and CM-View management system. This solution introduces cost efficiency and technology advantages to the market by enabling the delivery of TDM services over standard and interoperable MPLS networks, in addition to gateway functionality that is implemented on the switches.
The CM-4140 brings added value in its MPLS/Ethernet/TDM package, solution offering and aggressive price point. The product is positioned as Hub and/or Aggregation Site Gateway (HSG/ASG) and is equipped with standard and interoperable Layer 2 MPLS; GE, 10GE and PDH/SDH interfaces; E1, STM-1/4/16 over packet; CEP, SAToP, CESoP; synchronous Ethernet, IEEE 1588v2l and 168G switching capacity at 3RU footprint with 250W of power consumption,
The CM-11 is a multi-service access switch with E1/T1, FE/GE interfaces that enables the delivery of voice, video and data services in mobile networks. The product is positioned as Cell Site Gateway (CSG) and is equipped with E1/T1 and FE/GE interfaces; SAToP, CESoP, ETHoP; and synchronous Ethernet, IEEE 1588v2
The CM-View is a high-end management and service provisioning system, providing "transport-class" management capabilities for mobile networks. The CM-View eliminates the need for costly and complex CLI provisioning and offers a significant OPEX reduction.
