MANSFIELD, MA, July 17, 2019 – Telco Systems, the leading provider of innovative SDN/NFV, CE 2.0, MPLS and IP solutions, today announced the availability of its groundbreaking T-Metro 8104 service aggregation and cloud gateway platform that enables telecom operators to stay ahead of the insatiable demand for bandwidth, evolving business services and smarter connectivity. T-Metro 8104 is a compact, high density, modular platform that delivers 1.2Tb throughput with flexible, pay-as-you-grow options: base configuration expandable from 40 up to 88 SFP+ ports; optional additional CPU; optional OAM module.

T-Metro 8104 is the first CE2.0 compliant, modular, multipurpose service aggregation and cloud gateway platform available at the ultra-high capacity of 1.2Tb. It combines a high density, standalone carrier Ethernet platform for MPLS, Layer 3 and SDN, with powerful service aggregation capacity.

T-Metro 8104 with its ultra-high capacity and flexibility positions operators to take advantage of the transformation enabled by 5G and Multi-access Edge Computing. Its service scalability, carrier-class resiliency and advanced features include QoS and OAM for multiple scenarios, including off-net aggregation, mobile backhaul and optional SLA testing diagnostics. T-Metro 8104 supports the connectivity to the Cloud for these new data-intensive services in terms of both overall capacity and performance.

Since the growth in bandwidth requirements is a certainty, T-Metro 8104 enables telcos and managed service providers to make initial investments according to their current needs. The modular architecture of T-Metro 8104 allows service providers to add capacity and interfaces at any time, expanding as necessary without expensive forklift replacements.

By positioning a high capacity aggregation and compute platform at the network edge, T-Metro 8104 brings the Cloud closer to the customer and increases serviceability, while also offloading workloads from the network core.
