OE Solutions to sell Aim Valley's EX14 Transport NID

May 22, 2013
OE Solutions Co., Ltd. and Aim Valley BV have extended their partnership beyond technology co-development (see, for example, “Smart SFP first offering from OE Solutions, AimValley collaboration”) to product resale – specifically, OE Solutions reselling Aim Valley gear. The first instance is the EX14, a compact, carrier-class network interface device developed by the Dutch company that OE Solutions has agreed to sell.

OE Solutions Co., Ltd. and Aim Valley BV have extended their partnership beyond technology co-development (see, for example, “Smart SFP first offering from OE Solutions, AimValley collaboration”) to product resale – specifically, OE Solutions reselling Aim Valley gear. The first instance is the EX14, a compact, carrier-class network interface device (NID) developed by the Dutch company that OE Solutions has agreed to sell.

The EX14 offers both demarcation and media conversion via small form pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers. A second electrical Gigabit Ethernet port, transparent for Synchronous Ethernet, can support additional applications such as mobile backhaul. The NID features digital diagnostics monitoring (DDM) to enable both on-site and remote review of optical power levels. A robust metal housing and dual power inputs ensure telecom-grade performance, OE Solutions adds.

The NID supports OAM IEEE 802.1ag Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) and ITU-T Y.1731 frame loss and frame delay measurement to monitor and optimize performance in support of service-level agreements (SLAs). Network operators can provision and monitor all relevant parameters for optimal quality of experience using Creanord’s EchoVault system or the Titan API, OE Solutions says. The unit’s small size and low power consumption make the EX14 well suited for mobile backhaul and business Ethernet access applications where footprint and power dissipation must be small, the company adds.

"Our customers demand an SLA assurance solution that verifies critical service parameters such as end-to-end service availability, frame loss ratio, and frame delay of Ethernet services in their network," says Richard Burroughs, director of sales at OE Solutions. "Just like the OAM Smart SFP, the EX14 provides the key performance indicators that enable mobile backhaul and business Ethernet access operators to provide optimized quality of experience to end users."
