Anda Networks Launches EtherReach 1000 Series
May 23, 2007 8:00 AM
Anda Networks has announced the launch of the EtherReach 1000, its new portfolio of Intelligent Ethernet-over-fiber network terminating equipment (NTE), which the company claims addresses carrier requests for easy-to-deploy and cost-effective managed Ethernet access devices.
The new EtherReach 1000 portfolio complements Anda's EtherEdge 4000 Ethernet aggregation and EtherReach 2000 Ethernet-over-copper products, enabling carriers to provide a near-ubiquitous Ethernet service offering over fiber and copper infrastructure.
The EtherReach 1000 series is part of Anda Networks' family of EtherTone carrier-class Metro Ethernet access, aggregation, and transport platforms. All EtherTone platforms are MEF 9 (UNI) and MEF 14 (QOS) certified. EtherTone includes both the EtherEdge 4000 aggregation platforms and EtherReach 2000 series Ethernet-over-SONET/SDH/PDH-based products. By adding the EtherReach 1000 fiber-based NTE products, Anda says it brings a complete portfolio of access platforms with carrier-class quality of service (QoS) and universal interface capabilities.
Additionally, Anda extends its support for multiple types of Ethernet deployments by adding support for the new Provider Backbone Transport (PBT/PBB-TE) proposed standard as well as traditional Q-in-Q and MPLS deployment options.
"The demand for scalable Ethernet transport is high," says Charles Kenmore, president and CEO of Anda Networks. "We are offering carriers flexible options to meet the requirements of all next-generation Ethernet service architectures, regardless of protocol. The new EtherReach 1000 series enables continued acceleration of Ethernet service deployments now over fiber, leveraging not only our flexible, feature-rich hardware and software platforms, but also our extensive field deployment experience of well over 8,000 systems installed worldwide."
The EtherReach 1000 series is a family of fixed-Ethernet intelligent access and demarcation products sharing a common software and hardware architecture to terminate Ethernet over fiber with a mix of different 10/100, 100 FX, and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interface options.
