Overture Networks Upgrades its Carrier Ethernet over Copper Product Line
By Raju Shanbhag
Overture Ethernet over bonded copper solutions allow service providers and network operators alike to offer new and improved services to users, not to mention it enables them to achieve as much as 500 Mbps on copper. While that’s a theoretical possibility, the company’s customers can easily deploy services and transport from 10Mbps - 100 Mbps using these solutions.
Recently, the company unveiled release 12.2 for the Overture 239, 400, 500, 600, 4000, and 6100 product lines. According to the company, these improvements provide enhanced scalability, rapid installations and better manageability of services. The advanced version is offered on the company’s Carrier Ethernet-over-Copper (EoC) platforms.
The new release allows the Overture 4000e aggregation platform to accommodate up to 120 remote EoC demarcation units in a stack while also providing extended crosstalk cancellation and new span profiles, which allows service providers to offer touch-free service, the company explained.
“As demand increases for both wholesale and retail Ethernet, one of the primary focus areas carriers worldwide face is how to quickly deliver high-speed, high-performance service while minimizing provisioning and turn-up costs,” said Vijay Raman, vice president of product management and marketing at Overture Networks (News - Alert).
“This release fulfills the need by offering our customers new tools and features that help shorten and streamline the turn-up cycle. This in turn allows them to recognize revenue earlier and drive substantial cost-savings.”
Recently, the company also revealed that it installed two of its solutions for Iceland’s trunk and access networks operator, Mila. With these products, Mila can now cater to the quickly increasing mobile bandwidth demand. The solutions – Overture 1400 and 4800 – help users to cater to the challenge telecom operators face. Supporting 3G and 4G data services to single or multiple carriers at the cell tower, the Overture 1400 is a modular Gigabit Carrier Ethernet platform.
