STOCKHOLM -- Transmode, a global supplier of packet-optical networking solutions, today announced the evolution of the company's Native Packet Optical architecture. Native Packet Optical 2.0 combines the best of the optical and Ethernet worlds and adds significant new capabilities including MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE2.0) services, MPLS-TP and OTN transport to its already solid and proven architecture.
Transmode has been at the forefront of the rapid migration to metro and regional packet-optical solutions, which integrate Layer 2 Ethernet into the optical platforms. To date these solutions have been deployed across the globe for applications such as Switched Video Transport, mobile backhaul, business Ethernet services, GPON replacement and multi-purpose metro/metro-core infrastructure. Transmode's Native Packet Optical architecture and range of Layer 2 Ethernet Muxponders (EMXP II) have been key to the success of these deployments. The company has now extended this architecture to include new functionality across the product family.
The new Native Packet Optical 2.0 architecture extends the solutions to include MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE2.0) services, MPLS-TP and OTN transport. The underlying Native Packet Optical architecture provides network operators with a packet-friendly network with industry-leading transport performance. CE2.0 compliance extends the range of standardized services available from the platform and enhances interconnect and multi-CoS capabilities. MPLS-TP adds traffic engineering, additional protection schemes and scalability. The OTN capabilities facilitate interworking with OTN networks and create a core network agnostic aggregation network.
