Creanord Service Delivery and Aggregation Switches with True SLA for Business and Wholesale make NIDs redundant in Critical Communications

Creanord Ltd, a leader in Critical Communications solutions, today announced expanding the portfolio with superior high performance Service Delivery and Aggregation Switches with True SLA for Business and Wholesale networking.

Singapore - June 19th, 2013. As ever more mission-critical applications spread across diverse industries, the performance and SLA requirements placed on connectivity services continue to evolve and get stricter. Customers who really need high quality are too often frustrated with their providers. One reason is that SLA demarcation devices and NIDs no longer meet the service delivery requirements – failing to impress with the networking capabilities required by demanding customers. To meet this demand, the new CreaNODE family empowers service providers to deliver high capacity services with virtually any topology including fiber rings, point-to-point, multi-homed and aggregated 10Gbps uplinks and both 10Gbps and 1Gbps subscriber interfaces. Advanced features such as Link Aggregation, Protection, wire-speed Quality of Service and industry leading SLA Enforcement ensures that the service is Critical Communications ready.

With the new CreaNODE 5000 and 2000 Series, service providers not only get the most flexible and powerful Service Delivery and Aggregation Switches designed for Critical Communications, but also seamless EchoVault integration providing unparalleled network visibility for a service, with SLA and customer perspective.

CreaNODE 5000 and 2000 Series highlights include:
- MEF Services: E-Access, E-Line, E-LAN, E-Tree, EPL, EVPL
- High port density delivering up-to 128 Gbps throughput, Full wire speed, 10K jumbo frames
- Port/queue shaping, H-QoS with hardware queues, Q-in-Q, Dual VLAN push/pop
- Robust bandwidth control mechanism and Service Level Agreement (SLA) monitoring per flow
- Advanced high speed protection mechanisms for link, path, and ring service resiliency
- Complete Ethernet OAM toolbox based on ITU-T Y.1731, IEEE 802.1ag and RFC 2544
- Unique Micro-Burst Detection (MBD) for microsecond granular bandwidth monitoring
- Extensive Precision Timing, IEEE 1588-2008 and Sync-E
- Compact design with low power consumption

The CreaNODE 5000 and 2000 series allow providing advanced services but at the same time, through seamless Creanord EchoVault integration, translate complex technical data such as latency and packet loss into a language that the customer can understand – to answer the question “am I getting what I paid for”. This helps build customer trust and improves the communications service provider brand.

“Extra NIDs are now obsolete in Critical Communications” says Creanord CTO Antti Pappila. “No longer do public safety, defence, healthcare, financial and Ethernet wholesale organizations need to suffer from lack of SLA backed High-Capacity switching and protection mechanisms for link, path, and ring service resiliency. The most demanding services and SLAs can be delivered with the CreaNODE 5000 and 2000 series of Service Delivery and Aggregation switches. Think any topology. Think lowest latency and highest capacity with controlled quality”.
