MSW-4424A layer 2+ managed Gigabit Ethernet switches are positioned as a Carrier Ethernet access switch solution. They are equipped with 24 SFP based 100Base-FX/1000Base-X dual speed optical ports and 4 10G Base-X SFP+ or 1000Base-X SFP uplink ports. The MSW-4424A offers the best flexibility and scalability for operators and service providers to deploy their Metro Ethernet networks. Aimed specifically at Metro Ethernet deployment, the specifications of MSW-4424A fully meet the attributes of Carrier Ethernet proposed by the Metro Ethernet Forum. The switches comply with MEF 9 standard to support E-Line/E-Access services and MEF 14 standard to enable the bandwidth profile configuration for delivering SLA (Service Level Agreement) with predictable end-to-end performance characteristics. MSW-4424A also supports advanced service OAM management to rapidly detect and recover from the network incidents in real time.
▪ Front access and hot swappable design
All of the system modules are front accessible, the hot swappable power and FAN module are designed to keep high network availability without service interruption when components fail
▪ Fully dual rate architecture of fiber link port
Dual speed fiber ports offer scalable physical connections for Metro Ethernet network operators
▪ Fully Ethernet OAM enable
Ethernet OAM features (IEEE 802.3ah/802.1ag/ITU-T Y.1731) help to rapidly detect and recover network faults and save OPEX for operators as well as increase customer satisfaction
