NSN, Juniper Push Carrier Etherent

AMSTERDAM -- Nokia Siemens Networks and Juniper Networks are launching Carrier Ethernet Transport 3.0 (CET) at Carrier Ethernet World Congress 2011. CET 3.0 provides a simple, cost effective migration to packet-based transport networks by managing the surging demand for bandwidth from mobile backhaul, business and residential data traffic. Nokia Siemens Networks is also showcasing its Packet Optical Transport system, illustrating how the end-to-end control of transport services can be greatly simplified. Both technologies are on show at Carrier Ethernet World Congress 2011, between 11 – 13 October, at the Hotel Okura, Amsterdam.

CET 3.0 has been enhanced with IP and Ethernet VPN service provisioning, end-to-end synchronization, extended interoperability with legacy mobile networks and global interconnect capabilities. The solution lowers total cost of ownership by up to 30%, and will be commercially available from November 2011.

“The Carrier Ethernet Transport 3.0 solution offers clear benefits to service providers seeking a more reliable and cost effective way to address the explosive demand for bandwidth,” said Dror Nemirovsky, head of packet networks business at Nokia Siemens Networks. “Our solution allows service providers to operate a truly converged network, define quality depending on the type of service, and simplify network architecture and management, to deliver a vastly improved communications experience at much lower costs.”
