* MRV debuts OptiSwitch 904 at CTIA
By Traci Patterson
MRV Communications Inc. has debuted its OptiSwitch 904, a network interface and demarcation device that makes it cost-effective to use Carrier Ethernet for wireless backhaul and MPLS transport (T-MPLS) access network applications.
The OS904 serves as a network interface device (NID) located at the wireless packet-base station or customer premises to terminate optical networks, the company said. The device is an advanced demarcation device featuring hierarchical quality of service (QoS) with L2 VPN encapsulation, selective VLAN stacking and a path to future T-MPLS services over a packet-switched network.
The device is being demoed at the CTIA Wireless 2008 tradeshow in Las Vegas.
