Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Service Delivery Case Study: Telstra's Ethernet Services Powered by MRV - Heavy Reading
Information Resources  | 
7/7/2014  | 

In March 2013, Telstra became the first service provider in Asia/Pacific and only the second in the world to receive Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 certification. Telstra achieved this milestone after passing stringent tests of its Ethernet Access and Ethernet Backhaul E-Line services, launched in August 2012. The operator's CE 2.0-certified E-Line products are now available nationally in more than 1,700 metro and regional exchange service areas.

Telstra's next-generation Ethernet services use a set of access, pre-aggregation, and service provisioning and management platforms supplied by MRV Communications. MRV's CE 2.0-certified solution is deployed by Telstra as part of a nationwide network upgrade that complements separate investments the company has made to expand its 4G mobile network and broadband infrastructure.

This study examines Telstra's motivation for embracing CE 2.0 technology, discusses the services capabilities enabled by MRV's platforms and explores how Telstra is implementing advanced CE solutions to enhance its service portfolio, deliver greater value to its customers and improve its profitability.

Business Ethernet Revisited: The Testing Imperative White Paper
Information Resources  | 
7/3/2014  | 

The business services opportunity for the cable industry still beckons. Ethernet has emerged as a key enabling technology for its speed, low cost and flexibility. Cable operators have gained a small share of the telco-dominated business services market but are relatively stronger in retail and wholesale Ethernet services. Testing plays a critical role in the installation and maintenance of these services, which typically require adherence to service level agreements (SLAs). In this white paper, we examine how the prerequisite to testing is a workforce trained to use test and measurement (T&M) equipment.

Testing the Next-Gen Network: Make Way for 100GE White Paper
Information Resources  | 
7/3/2014  | 

Telecommunications networks of the future will continue to carry a mix of technologies. But as legacy infrastructure declines, the evolving Gigabit Ethernet (GE) market is poised to play an increasingly larger role.

Network operators already constrained by 10GE circuits have deployed 40GE, and some are now scaling 100GE across backbone, metro and even access platforms. Standards, favorable costs and growing network traffic help explain Ethernet's appeal. As 40GE and 100GE circuits become more widespread, operators will need to enhance their test and measurement (T&M) equipment accordingly.

A Concise Guide to Mobile Backhaul Synchronization White Paper
Information Resources  | 
7/3/2014  | 

As the Mobile Backhaul increases bandwidth between radio equipment and core networks to keep up with demand, legacy TDM links are being replaced by more efficient Ethernet links. However, with packet switched networks (PSN) being inherently asynchronous, the question arises as to what could fill the void of providing the tight frequency and phase synchronization required by the mobile base stations and other real-time applications.

Several technologies like IEEE 1588v2 Precision timing protocol, ITU-T G.8261 Synchronous Ethernet and GPS-disciplined clocks are currently available to fill that gap. Since each one has its strengths and weaknesses, and solutions may include a combination of them, Mobile Backhaul Synchronization is currently a hot topic being studied and discussed by standardization bodies and service providers' labs around the world. This white paper provides a concise guide to these new synchronization techniques, with an emphasis on the IEEE 1588v2 Precision Timing Protocol (PTP).
