Centec Introduces Industry Leading Hardware-based MPLS-TP OAM Solution

SUZHOU, China, July 6, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — Centec Networks, a leading innovator of carrier-grade IP/Ethernet switching silicon and advanced ODM/OEM system solutions, today announced the industry leading hardware based MPLS-TP OAM solution, supporting both BFD extension for MPLS-TP and GACH + Y.1731 (ITU-T G.8113.1 or IEFT BHH draft) standards. The solution enables telecommunication equipment vendors to build standard based MPLS-TP systems that are compatible to both IETF and ITU-T standards, which is essential for a smooth transition from traditional transport networks to Packet Transport Networks.

The solution is built on top of Centec's latest transport-oriented packet switching core silicon Humber/Manhattan/Brooklyn from the TransWarpTM family and a dedicated OAM Engine on FPGA (CliftonTM). It provides complete MPLS-TP OAM functionalities for equipments from edge to core, while maintains the flexibility of smooth future-proof upgrade. Clifton can work seamlessly with the OAM engine inside Humber/Manhattan/Brooklyn to support a wide range of OAM protocols, including 802.1ag Ethernet CFM, 802.3ah EFM,Y.1731, BFD for IP/MPLS, GACH + Y.1731 (BHH draft) and BFD for MPLS-TP OAM. Hardware based fast CCM (3.3ms) generation and UP/DOWN MEP which is critical for service deployment are well supported by this solution.

Working together with TransWarp's built-in One-Bit Automatic Protection Switching (APS) mechanism, the solution offers sub-50ms recovery for network availability. 1588v2 (both one-step and two-step) and SyncE are also supported by this hardware solution, providing a complete reference design platform for telecom equipment vendors.

The solution has attracted several vendor interests. Centec is working with leading vendors/service providers in the Asia Pacific region to build their Packet Transport systems based on the solution. "OAM is one of the key aspects in MPLS-TP. Compounding implementations, IETF and ITU-T are each developing differing OAM specifications, namely BFD extension and GACH + Y.1731," said Jag Bolaria, Senior Analyst with the Linley Group, "Fortunately, Centec's MPLS-TP OAM chipset supports both standards, enabling OEMs to easily develop a common product regardless of the OAM favored by the carrier."

"This is a complete MPLS-TP OAM solution. Centec not only offers the chipset as a standalone solution, but also provides turn-key solution with complete software/hardware built on top of the chipset, that can further reduce vendors' R&D cost and dramatically shorten customer's time to market," said by Tao Gu, CTO of Centec, "TransWarpTM family is purposely designed for Carrier Ethernet and Packet Transport Networks with NPU-like flexibility. Centec will continue to deliver more cost-effective solutions based on the powerful chipset to better satisfy the fast evolving market."
