Telco Systems’ T-Marc 3306 is an advanced business services Network Interface Device (NID) with 8 x 1GE port density. As a cost-optimized demarcation device, T-Marc 3306 reduces network CAPEX, while ensuring the ability to provide and manage converged Ethernet services in multi-carrier networks. T-Marc 3306 offers the ideal combination of affordability and capability. It integrates seamlessly and quickly into any network, guaranteeing the security, performance and access required to ensure delivery of next-generation Carrier Ethernet business services.

T-Marc 3306 is suitable for carrier applications and helps service providers establish a more efficient, reliable and easy-to-manage-and-maintain network.

As part of Telco Systems’ innovative Open Metro Edge (OME) solution, T-Marc 3306 enables service providers to offer new types of services quickly and flexibly while reducing the cost of carrying traffic. The comprehensive set of OAM tools, small footprint, low power consumption and extended temperature support ensure low operating expenses (OPEX).
MEF Services

T-Marc 3306 is fully MEF CE 2.0-certified and which provides extensive Layer 2 functionality with non-blocking wire-speed switching capabilities including E-Line point-to-point Ethernet service, E-LAN multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service, E-Tree point-to-multipoint service and E-Access services.

OAM Toolset

Offering a rich toolset of OAM functionalities, T-Marc 3306 supports up to 64 concurrent OAM sessions. The OAM toolset includes EFM, CFM, Y.1731 for latency, loss, delay, and jitter measurements; RFC2544 in full wire speed and Y.1564 in full wire speed, including four concurrent Y.1564 tests for service activation.

T-Marc 3306 supports user ports and network loopback, including generic MAC swap capabilities in wire speed. Loopback implementation includes a per-service (VLAN) loopback that enables loopback to a specific service while another service continues to run normally on the port.

Hierarchical Quality of Service

HQoS mechanisms manage traffic with multi-level SP, WRR and hybrid-frame scheduling as well as CoS marking and mapping per EVC, including DEI and VPT preservation and remarking. Traffic prioritization is through IPv6 data path DSCP. Single- and dual-rate limiting can be set per port, EVC or flow, and hierarchical rate limiting can be set per EVC.
