SUZHOU, CHINA: Centec Networks, a leading innovator of carrier-grade IP/Ethernet switching silicon and advanced ODM/OEM system solutions, today introduced two switches for carrier-class access/aggregation and modular routing applications.
The systems are fully customizable and combine carrier-class redundancy and ring protection for high-density applications in metro access/aggregation and core networks. The E310 and E810 enable OEMs to improve time to market and minimize R&D resources while providing carriers the latest Carrier Ethernet systems to deploy packet based services.
“Centec is uniquely positioned to enable cost-effective Carrier Ethernet systems powered by our high-performance chipsets,” said Tao Gu, chief technology officer (CTO) with Centec Networks.
“Additionally, our team in China is equipped to deliver rigorously tested and extremely cost-effective engineering services backed by strong domain knowledge, ensuring that customers can optimize system features and optimize competitive differentiation. Our latest systems exemplify Centec’s commitment to giving customers a robust platform that speeds time-to-market and reduces development costs for high-performance, feature-rich access/aggregation and modular routing systems.”
Centec’s compact E310 access/aggregation system supports Layer 2 and 3 Virtual Private Network (VPN) requirements and implements all Quality of Service (QoS), security and Ethernet Operation, Administration and Management (OAM) protocols that are necessary for advanced Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) services.
The E810 modular routing switch delivers wire-speed performance for IP and MPLS packet processing with advanced Metro Ethernet OAM management capabilities, and incorporates a broad range of redundancy protection features into a high density, environmentally-friendly chassis design with a high-conversion-rate power supply to optimize energy efficiency.
Centec’s highly experienced development team will work closely with OEM/ODM partners to customize both systems for special feature requirements. The E310 family will also include environmentally-hardened versions.
