Overture 6500 Extends Performance-Assured Ethernet Across Any Access
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. --(Business Wire)--
today announced the availability of recent enhancements to its
service aggregation and switching platform. The new release fulfills
the promise of performance-assured Carrier Ethernet over any access
method, including fiber, E-Access, copper, SONET/SDH, and TDM, with full
resiliency. Additionally, Overture's introduction of a 96-pair Ethernet
over Copper (EoC) interface module makes the 6500 the industry's highest
density EoC solution on the market.
The EoC interface module incorporates Overture's market-leading EoC
technology that offers from 1 to 24 pair bonding across cards for
resilient delivery of up to 300Mbps of symmetric performance-assured
Ethernet service. The 6500 integrates seamlessly with Overture's 400,
4000, and 6100 family of EoC Ethernet Access Devices to enable rapid
service deployment on any scale.
Additionally, the 6500, a 2013 Stevie Product of the Year Award winner,
is the entry point for Ensemble
Open Services Architecture™ (OSA),
Overture's open architecture for delivering software-defined
services and virtualization at the metro service edge.
"The 6500 and Ensemble OSA represent a fundamental new approach
for service creation, activation and assurance," said Keith Donahue,
vice president of Product Management, Overture. "Ubiquitous Carrier
Ethernet access - as enabled by the 6500 - is the foundation on which
virtualization and software-defined services will be used to drive
service agility and improve operational efficiency. At Overture, we are
committed to helping service providers meet today's challenges while
providing a path to efficiently address future service evolution."
