Ethernet Service Demarcation and Extension Solution

T-Marc 300 Series
The T-Marc Ethernet Service Demarcation and Extension product line from Telco Systems provides intelligent and remotely managed, multiport customer-located equipment (CLE) to deliver managed converged services (voice, video and data) over virtual Ethernet, MPLS/VPLS and IP networks.

The T-Marc allows service providers to deliver multiple services on separate customer interfaces, including multiple services over a single customer interface. Because each service is isolated, providers can troubleshoot each individual service without impacting others. Applications are prioritized over different traffic-engineered paths, multi-level Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) is used to measure and ensure provisioned Service Level Agreements (SLA), and security controls are embedded to ensure protection against denial-ofservice attacks.

Advanced Layer 2 Networking using Telco Systems’ AccessEthernet® allows total flexibility in deployment, provisioning, and delivery of Ethernet OAM 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.
