Overture 6500 Extends Performance-Assured Ethernet Across Any Access

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.”
