Ethernet technologies address growing requirements for additional capacity. Capacity issues arise as a result of higher bandwidth, next-generation applications. For carriers who need to increase network capacity and minimize costs, Ethernet is rapidly becoming the choice of transport technology. The result is a common technology for enterprise LAN, MAN, and WAN site-to-site connectivity.
New Ethernet-based services such as VPLS (virtual private LAN service) provide carriers with added revenue generating opportunities; however these services require a greater amount of bandwidth. Ethernet VPN services, unlike IP VPN services, enable service providers to connect two or more locations using Ethernet. Ethernet has great appeal since it is a familiar technology to service providers and offers a cost-effective way to scale networks, often resulting in lower operating expenditure.
Through a partnership with Juniper Networks, enfoPoint offers a broad range of products, knowledge and solutions in Ethernet Services.
Some additional information about Juniper Networks:
Juniper Networks MX-series Ethernet Services Routers (ESRs) are purpose-built platforms designed to support an impressive number of GigE and 10 GigE ports and MAC addresses, supporting more than twice as many interfaces per chassis as competing products. Customers can increase the energy efficiency of their networks and reduce power, space and cooling costs by as much as 60 percent.
In addition to industry-leading scalability and performance, the MX series Ethernet Service Routers deliver many advantages, including:
- Carrier-proven JUNOS Operating System
- Dense Port Concentrators
- Superior QoS
- Full Layer 2 Capabilities
- MPLS Plug-and-Play
