Pulsecom Extends Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Product Family With Ethernet NID

Pulsecom, a Subsidiary of Hubbell Incorporated (NYSE: HUBA, HUBB; 2011 revenue: $2.9B), announces a further expansion of its Carrier Ethernet access family with release of the SuperG NID, a CE 2.0 compliant Ethernet NID purpose built to exceed rigorous Tier 1 Service Provider criteria and deliver managed, cost-effective carrier-to-carrier global services.

“We specifically wanted to design a Carrier Ethernet NID that could scale to support the number of services required by Tier 1 Service Providers,” says Marco Mascitto, Pulsecom Business Development. “Many Carrier Ethernet NIDs on the market claim to be suitable for deployment by Tier 1 Operators, but they really don’t scale to support the number of EVCs required, and are limited by SOAM functions implemented in software. Our hardware-based Y.1731 implementation ensures Service Providers can generate sufficient SOAM PDUs in order to accurately report the Frame Delay (FD), Inter-Frame Delay Variation (IFDV), and Frame Loss (FL) for each CoS-instance being monitored. Hardware-based implementations are essential for sub-50ms protection switching based on ETH-CC as well.”

The Carrier Ethernet 2.0 ready SuperG NID supports eight QoS queues per port, multiple VLAN tag manipulation functions, per-port and per-EVC statistics, dual token bucket policers, port shapers, and various protection schemes including spanning tree, LAG, ITU-T G.8031 and G.8032, with secured management plane access from the NetPulse Element Management System (EMS). All these features come in a half-rack, fanless, NEBS certified package at a price point that allows for cost-effective Mobile Backhaul.

“As Ethernet gets pushed out to smaller and smaller cell sites, the critical need for accurate clock distribution doesn’t change,” says Dave Corp, Pulsecom Engineering and Marketing. “The SuperG NID supports frequency distribution to cell site equipment through ITU-T G.8262 compliant SyncE PHYs, IEEE 1588 PTP compliant with the ITU-T G.8265.1 Telecom Profile and state-of-the-art adaptive timing to make our solution ideal for the next challenges facing Mobile Backhaul. Equally important, the SuperG family includes a unique DS1 CES architecture to eliminate QoS concerns for efficient multi-carrier and E911 aggregation. Versions certified to GR-3108 Class 1, Class 3 and Class 4 environmental conditions are available.”

The SuperG NID can be used to generate Y.1564 Service Activation Tests to verify circuits for correct Bandwidth Profile enforcement and for conformance to SLA parameters prior to handing over circuits to subscribers. This is an essential tool to ensure that EVCs are setup properly and avoids subsequent truck-rolls to the subscriber’s site.

“Pulsecom is now setting their sights on solving some of the unique issues associated with Small Cell RAN architectures,” Marco continues. “This is an emerging market that Pulsecom is perfectly positioned to address with decades of OSP experience.”

The SuperG NID is proudly designed and manufactured in the United States by Pulsecom, an ISO9001:2008 and TL9000 certified company. For more information on the SuperG family of products, visit Pulsecom at www.pulse.com.

About Pulsecom:

Established in 1963, Pulsecom became a subsidiary of Hubbell Incorporated (NYSE: HUBA, HUBB) ten years later and today over 10,000,000 Pulsecom voice and data circuits have been shipped to the public network.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery. Commvault can ensure this with a single pane of glass solution – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enter...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
