Expands BTI 800 Series with the New BTI SA-805 Ethernet Access Platform for High-Performance Ethernet Business, Mobile Backhaul and Cloud Connectivity Services
DALLAS - October 6, 2014
COMPTEL PLUS Fall 2014 CONVENTION & EXPO
BTI Systems, an award-winning provider of cloud and metro networking software and systems to content and service providers around the world, today announced enhancements to its Ethernet Business Services and Mobile Backhaul solutions with the addition of the BTI SA-805 service access platform for high-capacity Ethernet access. Introduced today at COMPTEL PLUS, the MEF 2.0-compliant BTI SA-805 is extremely compact in size, and enables service providers to cost effectively address the transition to 10G access services with advanced features designed to protect and increase revenues.
IPC is a leading global provider of specialized communications solutions for the financial services community. “As the leading provider of specialized communications and connectivity solutions for the global capital markets, we are constantly optimizing our network to increase bandwidth, performance and scale,” said IPC’s Vice President of Global Engineering, Tim Carmody. “Carrier Ethernet access and aggregation are vital to deploying reliable and scalable Ethernet business services. IPC already leverages BTI’s broad portfolio for both metro networking and low latency Ethernet business services, including most recently the BTI 7800 Series as a 100G core platform. We look forward to further optimizing our 10G Ethernet access and aggregation through the compact and scalable end-to-end packet solutions in the enhanced BTI 800 Series.”
Tremendous growth in service provider network traffic is creating the need for increased bandwidth from the end user to the core of the network. For example, streaming video is driving an increase in residential customer bandwidth requirements by 31 percent CAGR by 2018 (ACG Research). Service providers are also reacting quickly to enterprises needing high-speed, guaranteed performance for cloud service access by providing SLA-guaranteed 10G Ethernet business services. Mobile operators need more bandwidth for 4G LTE and LTE-Advanced Radio Access Networks (RANs) in order to keep up with the flood of video streaming and other bandwidth-intensive applications from the proliferation of smartphones. The BTI 800 Series provides highly scalable solutions that are MEF CE 2.0-compliant, drive 1G to 10G access services easily and cost effectively, and increase revenue opportunities for service providers.
“Service providers are constantly increasing bandwidth and driving new services which require an affordable, seamless path to high-performance Ethernet WAN and 4G LTE mobile backhaul services,” said BTI Systems Senior Product Manager, Frank Chang. “Reducing operational costs and complexity are also vital, and the BTI 800 Series seamlessly integrates with our entire packet optical portfolio – including the BTI 7800 Intelligent Cloud Connect and BTI 7000 platforms – all managed with a single management and control system. BTI continues to establish a leadership position in delivering solutions that add value to our service provider customers, while increasing revenues and enabling new services.”
The BTI 800 Series are compact, multiservice, carrier-grade platforms designed to deliver Ethernet, or Ethernet and TDM-based connectivity for enterprise business and wireless provider mobile backhaul service applications. The small form factor, low-power requirements and wide temperature range support make the BTI 800 Series ideal for use at wireless towers or customer premise locations – delivering high-performance, scalable services, while reducing operational costs and complexity. The new BTI SA-805 is an ultra-compact Ethernet Access Device (EAD) that supports 4xGE/10GE SFP+ ports with Ethernet switching capacity up to 40Gbps, G.8032v2 resiliency, Y.1731 Ethernet OAM, built-in RFC 2544 test, SyncE and IEEE 1588v2 support. The fan-less BTI SA-805 delivers up to 4x10GE in a conventional GE NID form factor.
The BTI 800 Series platforms integrate seamlessly with the BTI 7800 platforms providing high-speed 100G metro packet core network connectivity, and with the BTI 7000 Series platforms with packetVX™ Carrier Ethernet switching modules that provide Ethernet service switching and aggregation. This entire packet portfolio is supported by the SDN-enabled BTI proNX Control Software and associated applications, including the BTI proNX Service Manager, BTI proNX Dashboard and BTI proNX SLA Portal. The BTI proNX Service Manager includes a comprehensive and intuitive graphical user interface that provides a full set of ISO FCAPS management functions, and focuses on point-and-click activation of Ethernet services end-to-end across the network. The BTI proNX SLA Portal leverages standard Y.1731 OAM functions for end-to-end Ethernet service quality monitoring, and provides real-time as well as historical access to performance statistics and monitoring of key performance indicators.
