Below are available ordering options of the ETX-2, along with additional features to the list detailed in the “Quick Specs” tab:

ETX-2i

IP and Carrier Ethernet Demarcation Device with D-NFV

The ETX-2i is a next-generation hybrid L2 and L3 demarcation device for business and mobile applications. It is ideal for E-Line, E-LAN, E-Tree, and E-Access services, L3 VPNs, and value-added services using virtualization at the customer edge. The ETX-2i features an 8 Gbps forwarding engine for Carrier Ethernet and IP, with high capacity service provisioning, performance monitoring, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), and application awareness capabilities. With future-proof design and architecture, it supports dynamic forwarding to fit software defined networks (SDN).

  • Up to eight GbE combo ports
  • Integrated 8 Gbps switch/router
  • Flexible classification, H-QoS traffic management and scheduling
  • Modular network interfaces: FE/GbE (combo), E1/T1, T3, VDSL2, or SHDSL
  • Flexible synchronization offering Sync-E, IEEE 1588v2 slave, BC and TC for frequency and phase synchronization in mobile networks
  • Pluggable x86 D-NFV server module for hosting virtual functions
  • SDN-ready with configurable forwarding

ETX-203AM

Universal Carrier Ethernet Demarcation Device

Available as a modular demarcation device, the ETX-203AM enables operators to deliver Carrier Ethernet services and IP VPNs over any network connection. This reduces carrier TCO and simplifies purchasing, homologation, training, service production, and management integration.

  • Four FE/Gigabit Ethernet user ports
  • Modular network interfaces: FE/GbE (combo), E1/T1, T3, VDSL, or SHDSL
  • Optional 1 Gbps wire-speed router module for L3 VPN demarcation
  • NEBS-compliant and environmentally hardened enclosure options

ETX-203AX

Carrier Ethernet Demarcation Device

ETX-203AX delivers SLA-based Ethernet business services to the customer premises over native Ethernet access. It handles up to 5 Gbps of user traffic at wire-speed and is ideal for carriers, service providers, and wholesale operators requiring advanced Ethernet functionality at customer premises and multi-tenant units (MTUs).

  • Six FE/GbE ports (two network, four user); flexible selection of SFP and copper interfaces
  • Wide range AC/DC power supply options
  • NEBS-compliant option in a metal enclosure

ETX-205A

Carrier Ethernet Demarcation/Mobile Demarcation Device

The ETX-205A provides advanced Carrier Ethernet and L3 demarcation, as well as Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) capabilities, and offers combo interfaces and power supply redundancy. As a demarcation device for mobile backhaul, the ETX-205A incorporates Distributed GrandmasterTM functionalities, and is installed at cellular tower and controller sites to guarantee differentiated SLAs for LTE/LTE-A mobile operators, while cutting down provider costs by minimizing equipment needed for timing and demarcation.

  • Integrated 1 Gbps router for L2 and L3 VPN service demarcation with superior traffic management and monitoring capabilities
  • Flexible synchronization offering Sync-E, IEEE 1588v2 slave, BC and TC for frequency and phase synchronization in mobile networks
  • Distributed GM architecture integrating built-in GPS receiver with IEEE 1588v2 Grandmaster functionality for cost-optimized LTE deployments
  • E1/T1 pseudowire services per MEF-8, UDP/IP, MPLS static labeling in SAToP and CESoP modes and with CAS • Built-in x86 D-NFV server module for hosting virtual functions
  • Optional environmentally hardened enclosure

ETX-220A

10G Carrier Ethernet I Demarcation/Aggregation Device

Optimized for high speed access applications, the ETX-220A combines intelligent demarcation and aggregation capabilities to deliver SLA-based Carrier Ethernet services for enterprise and carrier-to-carrier E-Access applications. As a demarcation solution, the ETX-220A is used for managing the service hand-off at an enterprise headquarters handling a large volume of traffic, at carrier inter-connects, or between provider networks. Alternatively, it can also be used as an aggregation solution at the concentration point, where a single unit can support numerous services and concurrent OAM sessions.

  • Up to 4 x 10-GbE ports and up to 20 x 1-GbE ports in various combinations
