Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS)
The company has added this capability to its FSP 150 family. The ITU-T standard, also known as G.8032v2, provides sub-50ms protection and recovery switching, ensuring high reliability for ring-based Carrier Ethernet infrastructures. Fully configured to support IEEE Connectivity Fault Management (802.1ag), the FSP 150 family now features robust fast failure detection, protection and advanced multivendor interoperability, the company says.
This is an enhancement to the DTN-X platform to enable software activation of 100G bandwidth increments. Activation is a one-click process, and without the typical long wait times associated with provisioning equipment, as well as engineering and activating services, according to the company. The Instant Bandwidth solution is a combination of new hardware, software and operational innovation -- the hardware includes new line cards supporting 500G long-haul super-channels with 100G activated initially.
