Telco Systems has released its T-Marc 3312SC next-generation mobile backhaul Carrier-Ethernet/MPLS demarcation device. Several mobile backhaul providers are testing the T-Marc 3312SC currently. The device will be launched early in 2013. The device enables telecom operators and wholesale providers to standardize their deployments on one product. It is also designed to support the mobile operators’ transition into 3.5G and 4G technologies. The device provides large port density at a small footprint, making it an ideal solution for small cell deployments. The device incorporates high capacity in a compact size (1RU by half shelf width), with non-blocking architecture 12x1G ports and 8xE1/T1 circuit emulation services (CES) ports for TDM over Ethernet at cell sites with legacy mobile technology. It supports extending the core IP/MPLS to the cell site to use MPLS as a transport technology and enables providers to benefit from scalability, resiliency, traffic engineering and easier third-party integration and interoperability.
