IPITEK introduces wireless backhaul for Carrier Ethernet platform
JANUARY 5, 2010 -- IPITEK's modular multiservice platform for carrier-grade Ethernet features both synch-E and the latest IEEE 1588-2008.
JANUARY 5, 2010 -- IPITEK, a designer, developer, manufacturer, and supplier of video-optimized intelligent broadband networks, has introduced new features specifically tuned for wireless backhaul for its Carrier Ethernet Services Platform (MSP-CES). The company says the features allow users to select the synchronization approaches that best fit their applications.
IPITEK's modular multiservice platform for carrier-grade Ethernet features both synch-E and the latest IEEE 1588-2008. Features also include a 10G switch module, adding 10G capacity to backhaul rings. This integrated platform is designed to meet critical needs of mobile and wireless backhaul networks, which are facing increasing high-bandwidth demand as a result of wireless consumer electronics and applications that go beyond other bandwidth-hungry services such as Internet access, video, and gaming.
The company has also introduced a new multiport Digital Signal-3 (DS-3) module that complements its existing time-division multiplexing (TDM) module portfolio of DS-1 and channelized Optical Carrier-3 (OC-3). This new feature provides customers an application-aligned technology to provide to their consumers with capabilities that exactly match their requirements, according to IPITEK.
The Carrier Ethernet services platform now provides standards-based operation, administration, and maintenance (OAM) and monitoring features at node, link, and service levels. Adding to its current suite of OAM and monitoring support, IPITEK now supports IEEE 802.1ag, ensuring customers the ability to meet and monitor their service-level agreement (SLA) offering and to continuously check for network and business operation health.
"With our new wireless backhaul features, IPITEK is able to provide a mission-critical platform that satisfies the challenging requirements cable operators face today," says Michael Salour, IPITEK's chairman and chief executive officer. "This low-cost, highly robust solution is fully optimized for mobile and wireless backhaul networks, and ideal for today's bandwidth-hungry applications."
