Please call us at (866) 650-DATA and ask for out IP MPLS switching engineers to help you.
MPLS has its roots in Ipsilon's IP Switching, Cisco's Tag Switching, IBM's ARIS technology and a few other proposals to bring the sort of traffic engineering found in connection-oriented Asynchronous Transfer Mode and frame relay networks to connectionless IP networks.
The idea is to steer IP traffic onto a variety of routes instead of the single one discovered by an interior gateway protocol such as Border Gateway Protocol, to avoid congestion or failures, or to enable a particular class of service or guaranteed service level. MPLS switches and routers affix labels to packets based on their destination, type-of-service parameters, Virtual Private Network membership or other criteria. As a packet traverses a network, other switches and routers build tables associating packets and routes with labels. The MPLS switches and routers - dubbed label switch routers - assign each packet a label that corresponds to a particular path through the network. All packets with the same label use the same path - a so-called label switched path (LSP). Because labels refer to paths and not endpoints, packets destined for the same endpoint can use a variety of LSPs to get there.
OSP-OptiCore-400/800 are Layer 2/3 MPLS Switches. The OptiCore 800 is an eight slot Carrier Class advance switch with full MPLS Layer/3 functionality, while the OptiCoe is a four slot unit. Both chassis when basically configured may supports fast redundancy via VRRP when in ring mode configuration. Unit provides 4/8 access slots for the inclusion various optical 10Gbp/s modules, plus 10/100/1000BaseT electrical and optical mixed modules. Port density varies from 1 to 16 10Gbp/s ports or 348 10/100/1000 electrical ports. Modules may be interchanged to provide for flexible port type distribution.Modules may be interchanged to provide for flexible port type distribution - click for more information on that here.
Optic- Edge- Layer 2 Switch and Layer 3 Switch Series
Telco Systems T- Metero MLPS Switches- Layer 3 Switches
The T-Metro is a feature-rich multiservice access device, designed to increase service provider revenues and deliver a complete portfolio of voice data and video services.
The T-Metro family of products supports Wide variety of technologies including Ethernet, Circuit Emulation (CES), MPLS, OAM (operations, administration and maintenance) tools and Hierarchical QoS (H-QoS). This rich combination of
technologies allows service providers to deliver enhanced service offering while maintaining competitive pricing.
The T-Metro provides access to advanced data services such as virtual private LAN services (VPLS), virtual private wire services (VPWS) and IP virtual private network (IP-VPN) services. In addition, the T-Metro product line enables service providers to transparently carry native TDM traffic across the packet switched network (PSN) using circuit emulation services (CESoPSN). The TDM traffic is encapsulated in Ethernet or MPLS frames to preserve the full array of framing and signaling protocols, ensuring that no enhanced TDM features are lost.
MRV provides several families of Ethernet Switches, IP Switches and
Routers and MPLS Switches and routers and Routing solutions, including
both chassis-based systems accepting interface modules, and fixed-form
switches and routers.
The OptiSwitch product line is designed to meet the needs of
high-density fiber optic switching applications. With a variety of chassis
styles and over ninety modules, the OptiSwitch family provides an exceptional
level of versatility. It supports both high-end switching and IP routing
functionality and is ideal for broadband data communication service.
The OptiSwitch-M provides a wire speed IP/MPLS routing solution
and subscriber management platform, without sacrificing any of the features
required to build a scalable network. This is achieved by using a powerful
hardware engine with network processors implemented on every port. These custom
programmable processors are highly efficient and capable of analyzing and
modifying any part of a frame at wire speeds. Additionally, the network
processor can classify and prioritize each frame and enable per flow decisions
such as: scheduling, routing, forwarding, rate limiting, and filtering. The
OptiSwitch-M family has both modular products, and fixed form
The OptiSwitch-Z products are modular Layer 2/3/4
Switch/Routers, optimized for scalability, performance, and multi-processing
Linux IP services. The OS-Z family provides mid-sized to large systems featuring
up to 16 blade slots, 256Gbps of switching capacity, 160Mpps throughput, and up
to 32 Linux application processors.
Fixed Form OptiSwitch-F
Fixed-form switches and routers provide a fixed number of
Ethernet ports to which you can connect workstations and other network devices,
such as servers, routers, and other switches. Some of these switches also allow
plug-in uplink modules. Many of the product offerings support MRV’s wide range
of optical plug-in modules for maximal fiber-optic flexibility. The switches can
be deployed as desktop-to-backbone switches, aggregating 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX,
and Gigabit Ethernet traffic from other network devices.
