General Description

Carrier class 40-80 Gbps packet switch and traffic management solution for transport networks. Support for E-Line/-LAN/-Tree services through support of MPLS, Ethernet, and pseudo-wire switching and tunneling. TPX4004 has fully deterministic performance with any combination of protocols under any loading condition. It supports hardware-based OAM processing with 3.3 msec OAM transmission/reception and sub-50 msec protection switching.

Benefits

  • Carrier class integrated packet processing and traffic management solution for transport networks.
  • Fully deterministic performance with any combination of protocols under any loading condition.
  • Support for E-Line/-LAN/-Tree services through support of MPLS, Ethernet, and pseudowire switching and tunneling.
  • Hardware-based OAM support with 3.3 msec OAM transmission/reception and sub-50 msec protection switching for thousands of flows.
  • Adaptable to changes in standards and requirements due to SoftSilicon technology.
