The radical shift from traditional TDM based voice traffic to packet based data traffic, and growing demand for bandwidth from new services like 3G/4G, PTP, IPTV etc. presents a serious challenge to network operators in terms of capacity, supported services and related costs. Efficient, scalable and reliable aggregation network is a mandatory element of network infrastructure to address such business growth challenges in the era of explosive data traffic growth.
The UTStarcom’s NetRing® Packet Aggregation Network (PAN) solution uses the heritage of widely deployed NetRing 10000 Series products, and adds a number of cutting edge features to create a truly efficient aggregation platform for telecom operators and enterprises. The NetRing® PAN provides a unified all-packet aggregation platform for new data services. The solution is based on Pseudo Wire over MPLS-TP technology that supports an efficient Ethernet aggregation. The PAN platform offers wide range of protocols, standards and interfaces coupled with highest reliability and carrier-class set of features, including the carrier class sub 50ms recovery resiliency, hard QoS/SLA guarantees, end to end and multi-layer OAM, network-wide time/clock synchronization, efficient multicast data distribution.
Without compromising on high performance and rich functionality, UTStarcom products are designed to provide very high port density for smaller equipment footprint, and consume less power, resulting in further CAPEX and OPEX savings related to networks deployment and operation.
