Telco Systems’ T-Metro 8001 is a next generation high density service aggregation platform that provides Carrier Ethernet over both MPLS and Ethernet transport technologies, and is integrated with massive service scalability, carrier class resiliency, and an industry-leading feature set that supports Hierarchical QoS (HQoS), operations administration and management (OAM) capabilities. This best-in class service switch allows carriers to offer cloud-based, business Ethernet and mobile backhaul services to the edge. With 200GE capacity in a compact 1RU chassis, the T-Metro 8001 provides industry-leading throughput, port density, management and resiliency. Enabling a wide variety of services and an easy migration to a converged service environment, the T-Metro 8001 is the platform of choice to enable wide-scale Carrier Ethernet adoption, implementation, and transformation.

The T-Metro 8001 is designed for service providers who need the reliability of the traditional SONET/SDH quality of service and the flexibility to deliver multiple services at 1GE/10GE port rates in a metro Ethernet environment. This carrier-class device offers a full MPLS provider edge (PE) solution with integrated advanced MPLS/HVPLS capabilities in compact form factor, and per port network flexibility with either 1GE/10GE SFP+ in each port.
MPLS Cloud Services Solution
Cloud-based services pose new challenges for service providers. 

The T-Metro 8001 addresses these challenges using MPLS to provide low latency L2VPN, high availability, end-to-end service assurance using advanced OAM tools and increased scalability.

The T-Metro 8001 complements the T-Metro 8006 cloud gateway and service aggregation platform, and drives high capacity 10GE rings into the aggregation layer to support the high bandwidth required for cloud applications and mobile backhaul networks.

With it, Telco Systems offers service providers cloud-to-edge and cloud-to-cloud services end-to-end, assuring an exceptional level of experience for the end-user while optimizing carrier resources.

ETHERNET/MPLS/IP Multi 10GE Aggregation Device
Advanced Layer 2 networking allows total flexibility in deployment, provisioning, and delivery of Ethernet/MPLS/IP services. Physical and virtual networking capabilities provide automated address management and discovery, bandwidth profiles, advanced traffic classes, and complete control over how subscriber traffic is transported across a service provider’s network. Its reliable, non-blocking architecture and redundancy features ensure maximum uptime.

The T-Metro 8001 leverages Telco Systems’ field proven, carrier grade BiNOX operating system – common among all its platforms – to provide a robust and advanced multi-layer software platform to support operations, administration, and maintenance requirements. Hardware-based QoS and HQoS allows for very high QoS granularity independent of physical ports or services, while an embedded test head supports end-to-end SLA measurement and assurance. It also offers advanced OAM supporting hundreds of services with ITU-T Y.1731 SLM, RFC 2544 and Y.1564 measuring the network performance.

SDN Support
T-Metro 8001 provides full SDN support with comprehensive adoption of NETCONF, the network configuration protocol, and YANG, its data modeling language. It also support OpenFlow 1.3.1 with a simple software upgrade to ViNOX OS (ordered separately).
