Overture today announced the availability of recent enhancements to its award-winning 6500 service aggregation and switching platform. The new release fulfills the promise of performance-assured Carrier Ethernet over any access method, including fiber, E-Access, copper, SONET/SDH, and TDM, with full resiliency. Additionally, Overture’s introduction of a 96-pair Ethernet over Copper (EoC) interface module makes the 6500 the industry’s highest density EoC solution on the market.
The EoC interface module incorporates Overture’s market-leading EoC technology that offers from 1 to 24 pair bonding across cards for resilient delivery of up to 300Mbps of symmetric performance-assured Ethernet service. The 6500 integrates seamlessly with Overture’s 400, 4000, and 6100 family of EoC Ethernet Access Devices to enable rapid service deployment on any scale.
Additionally, the 6500, a 2013 Stevie Product of the Year Award winner, is the entry point for Ensemble Open Services Architecture™ (OSA), Overture’s open architecture for delivering software-defined services and virtualization at the metro service edge.
“The 6500 and Ensemble OSA represent a fundamental new approach for service creation, activation and assurance,” said Keith Donahue, vice president of Product Management, Overture. “Ubiquitous Carrier Ethernet access – as enabled by the 6500 – is the foundation on which virtualization and software-defined services will be used to drive service agility and improve operational efficiency. At Overture, we are committed to helping service providers meet today’s challenges while providing a path to efficiently address future service evolution.”

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
