Overture 1400 Edge Platform Enhanced with New Capabilities

Overture, the preferred Carrier Ethernet edge and aggregation partner for service providers and network operators worldwide, today unveiled its 3-port DS3 interface module and software enhancements for the Overture 1400, its award-winning gigabit Carrier Ethernet edge platform. Introduced as part of Release 12.1, the software upgrades add MLPPP bonding to the existing T1/E1 interface module, as well as capabilities for rapid service activation, dynamic re-marking of service classes, and synthetic loss measurements. With the debut of the new module, carriers and network operators can also leverage readily available DS3 circuits to deliver performance-assured Ethernet at speeds exceeding 100 Mbps to sites lacking dedicated fiber access.

“Carriers are looking for ways to better serve the needs of all customers, including those who require reliable high bandwidth services but can’t connect directly to the optical network due to physical or geographical barriers, or other gating factors,” said Vijay Raman, vice president of product management and marketing, Overture Networks. “With the Overture 1400 Release 12.1 and the 3-port DS3 interface module, service providers can quickly and easily meet customer demand for premium business services. It’s another powerful solution that allows us to turn the difficult into the doable.”

Named “Best Carrier Ethernet Demarcation Product” during the Carrier Ethernet World Congress, the Overture 1400 is a modular gigabit Carrier Ethernet edge solution. The platform enables premium business Ethernet and mobile backhaul service delivery over a variety of infrastructures, including native optical Ethernet, SONET/SDH, DS3/E3, DS1, and E1. Now, with the availability of the 3-port DS3 linecard, providers have the ability to bond up to three DS3 circuits to overcome Ethernet service delivery challenges in areas outside of existing fiber network footprints and offer 100 Mbps or more using readily available DS3s.

The 3-port DS3 linecard for the Overture 1400 supports Generic Framing Procedure (GFP) and Virtual Concatenation (VCAT) bonding using Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAS). The 3xDS3 module is supported by Overture’s Release 12.1, which introduces additional performance enhancements and upgrades, including:

  • Dynamic p-bit remarking – which allows traffic that exceeds the committed information rate (excess information rate or “EIR”) to be marked with a priority bit valued for special handling by upstream networks.
  • Zero touch provisioning – which allows the Overture 1400 to be installed at the customer site and automatically configured remotely with no local on-site intervention.
  • Y.1731 synthetic frame loss (ETH-SLM) – which provides the accurate one-way measurements of frame loss by injecting specialized test traffic alongside live user traffic.
  • MLPPP support on the existing 8-port T1/E1 interface module – which provides an alternative industry standard encapsulation and bonding technique for use with edge routers and aggregation switches. Previously, the module only supported GFP encapsulation with PDH-VCAT bonding.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
