During the inaugural IIR & MEF (News - Alert) Carrier Ethernet Awards EMEA event held during the Carrier Ethernet World Congress in Amsterdam on Oct. 12, Telco Systems was named the winner of the Best Carrier Ethernet Demarcation Product EMEA.

 “The competition for the award this year was very strong, and we thank the industry’s top experts' for underscoring the T-Marc 300 Series for excellence in the Ethernet demarcation product category,” said Itzik Weinstein, CEO at Telco Systems (News - Alert), in a statement.

An intelligent and remotely managed multiport demarcation device, Telco Systems T-Marc 300 Series delivers managed converged services – voice, video, data and mobile backhaul – over virtual Ethernet, MPLS/VPLS and IP networks.

With the T-Marc 300 Series, service providers can deliver various services to multiple customers including many services over a single customer interface as well as maintain separation and security of each customer.

Company officials said that because each service instance can be isolated and providers can remotely troubleshoot each individual service. Moreover, the other services running concurrently across the device or specific customer port are not impacted.  

Over different traffic-engineered paths, applications can be prioritized. Plus, multi-level Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) is used to measure and ensure that provisioned Service Level Agreements (SLA) is met. Company said that security controls are embedded to ensure protection against denial-of-service attacks.

The T-Marc 300 Series is MEF 9 and 14 certified with deployments in both business Ethernet and wireless backhaul applications worldwide.

Telco Systems, a Carrier Ethernet company, designs and develops network edge solutions which enable service providers to migrate their services from a circuit-based network to a more cost effective packet network.

Additionally, the company announced the release of its ATCA hub blades with integrated load balancing features including statistical and dynamic real-time scheduling for 10G to 40G applications.
