TOKYO -- NEC Corporation announced today the launch of sales for the MN5000 Series, a next generation packet transport device that uses MPLS-TP (*1) transmission to enable carrier networks to migrate to packet based networks, such as IP and Ethernet, with existing ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) and TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) transmission technologies, and bolsters NEC’s portfolio of packet transport products.

The MN5000 series has adopted MPLS-TP to enable the creation of packet based transport networks that offer monitoring of high precision/quality communications, conversion of high speed redundancy systems and advanced operations and maintenance (OAM) (*2), which enables existing networks to provide carrier grade reliability, maintenance and operation. Moreover, ATM and TDM transmission technologies are able to accommodate wide area Ethernet and dedicated Ethernet services using Pseudowire functions that emulate existing dedicated line services and enable a range of carrier network services, including ATM, circuit switching and Ethernet, through a single device that facilitates integration with packet transport networks.

These functions assist with the migration of existing backhaul networks and metro/core networks to packet based next generation transport networks, in addition to further unifying network operation and maintenance in order to optimize and reduce OPEX/CAPEX for telecommunications carriers.
