Native Packet Optical 2.0
The current rapid growth in video content, music downloads and business Ethernet applications are driving a booming demand for network capacity, for both fixed and mobile operators. Therefore, the need for a cost efficient way to build and scale metro transport networks is paramount to the ongoing success of any operator.
Transmode’s answer to this challenge is the Native Packet Optical approach. With the belief that standards based implementations bring the best value, Transmode is committed to continuing development and investment in this architecture. Recent developments, such as the new Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE2.0) initiative from Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF), have lead to a step change in the level of functionality available from the Native Packet Optical architecture, creating enhanced Native Packet Optical 2.0.
Native Packet Optical 2.0 combines the best of the optical and Ethernet worlds and adds significant new capabilities including MEF CE2.0 services, MPLS-TP and OTN transport to the already solid and proven architecture.
Native Packet Optical 2.0 uses:
- Ethernet to provide an extremely packet friendly metro network
- CE2.0 to add a broad range of service options to operators
- MPLS-TP to add traffic engineering, additional protection schemes and scalability
- OTN to add a core network agnostic architecture
