IMC Launches Ethernet CPE
FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif. -- IMC Networks, a worldwide leader in fiber access solutions, today announced Optical Ethernet customer premises equipment designed to eliminate the need for additional edge devices.
The new Access EtherLinX/4 performs remote end management, optical-to-electrical demarcation, rate limiting, traffic prioritization, and provides customers with a VLAN-based entry point to the MAN fiber services. Service providers are now able to deliver bandwidth-scalable "Transparent LAN," virtual local area networking, and other metro Ethernet services more cost-effectively than ever.
The remote operation, administration and maintenance capabilities of Access EtherLinX drastically lower operator costs by minimizing customer site visits after the initial equipment set up.
"The Access EtherLinX/4 represents a major breakthrough in Ethernet-based CPE in terms of price and performance, " said Jerry Roby, chairman and CEO of IMC Networks. "We are able to combine a host of features into one unit that addresses the needs of service providers when it comes to operating profitable Optical Ethernet services."
