T-Marc 3308/H is a first-class quad-tech demarcation device, offering Carrier Ethernet 2.0, MPLS and IP (Layer 3), and SDN (NETCONF/YANG).
Combining all of these capabilities into one device delivers the most cost- while offering the highest level of protection and assuring that requested effective solution and provides operators with the flexibility to face any service scenario now and in the future.

T-Marc 3308/H Ethernet/MPLS/IP premium business demarcation device comes with Layer 3 (L3) support and is ready for future SDN-enabled networks. With the right feature blend, T-Marc 3308/H brings the highest available value for cost performance. T-Marc 3308/H is suitable for wholesale and business service providers to connect their customers efficiently between sites and into the cloud. T-Marc 3308/H enables service providers to choose whether to use Carrier Ethernet network capabilities or to use MPLS to the edge without any additional software costs. In addition, T-Marc 3308/H allows service providers to combine Layer 3 native services together with layer2 advanced OAM tools. By supporting SDN, T-Marc 3308/H allows service providers to smoothly transition to future SDN-enabled networks.
T-Marc 3308/H supports IEEE 802.1q, 802.1ad   (Q-in-Q) and MPLS transport technologies, providing high flexibility in network design and thus “future proofing” the network. The device allows access to advanced data services such as virtual private wire services (VPWS), virtual private LAN service (VPLS) and hierarchical VPLS (HVPLS), simplifying the network and making it easier to manage, while gaining the added value of MPLS
T-Marc 3308/H offers excellent value for performance in a compact size (1RUby ½ shelf width), with 4 x 10/100/1000BaseTx and 4 x dual-speed (100M/1G) fiber ports. T-Marc 3308/H comes with an internal power supply (AC or wide range DC) and with an optional external redundant AC power supply.

Flexible Control of Traffic and Services


To allow communications service providers to cope more efficiently with the increased demand for a more diverse range of services, T-Marc 3308/H embeds sophisticated and flexible QoS and HQoS capabilities such as hierarchical queuing, rate limiting and traffic shaping, advanced scheduling schemes, and intuitive service-oriented SLA configurations. This allows providers to benefit from the multiplexed nature of Carrier Ethernet while assuring SLA requirements during traffic congestion. 
As an MPLS demarcation device, T-Marc 3308/H supports various traffic engineering technologies like LDP, BGP and RSVP-TE. These technologies allow service providers to engineer data paths based on several attributes while offering the highest level of protection and assuring that requested paths can meet defined SLA requirements. They also ensure fast switchover time to minimize degradation or interruption of services in case of failure, and provide high availability and sub-50ms resiliency using G.8031, G.8032, FRR, and Fast Ring standards.

L3 Support


T-Marc 3308/H provides comprehensive solutions and services that best support IP (Internet Protocol) environment requirements– including Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) support, IP static routing and dynamic routing protocols like OSPF and BGP. T-Marc 3308/H also supports Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) for dynamically distributing network configuration parameters, and Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP).

OAM Support

T-Marc 3308/H supports a broad set of hardware-based OAM tools to help providers reduce their operating expenses (OPEX) and to assure their customers that they are meeting their agreed SLAs. T-Marc 3308/H supports IEEE 802.1ag connectivity fault management (CFM) and ITU-T Y.1731, allowing service providers to monitor services end-to-end, identify connectivity and performance issues, enable SLA enforcement, and remotely isolate problems to avoid expensive truck rolls. The device also supports IEEE 802.3ah EFM-OAM at the link-level, and complies with MEF requirements, definitions and monitoring. Using RFC 2544 based embedded test heads and Y.1564 EtherSAM, as well as MEF 46 Latching Loopback, T-Marc 3308/H enables providers to pre-provision and remotely test services (e.g., from a central office), thereby further reducing costly truck rolls, saving OPEX, and improving service quality. Additionally, T-Marc 3308/H supports Zero Touch Provisioning to reduce the need for expensive support when connecting new customers.
