Telco Systems Introduces T-Marc 3308D Demarcation Device

By Alicia Young November 08, 2016

Telco Systems, a provider of innovative CE 2.0, MPLS, IP and SDN & NFV solutions, offers a portfolio of Carrier Ethernet and MPLS-based demarcation, aggregation and vCPE solutions, enabling service providers to create intelligent, service-assured, CE 2.0-compliant networks for mobile backhaul, business services and cloud networking. This allows service providers to create intelligent, service-assured, CE 2.0-compliant networks for mobile backhaul, business services and cloud networking.

So it should come as no surprise that Telco Systems is expanding on its portfolio of solutions. The company announced last week the release of its new T-Marc 3308D demarcation device for cable MSOs. The device’s purpose is to open new market opportunities for cable operators to offer business customers many advanced data services, such as Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), L2VPN, L3VPN, and inter-sites and data-center connectivity, over their existing DOCSIS networks.

Telco Systems explained that the T-Marc 3308D was created to meet a demand in the market: “Over the past ten plus years, many cable operators have successfully added telephony and data services to their core television content services, although these service expansion efforts have focused mainly on residential customers,” explained Raanan Tzemach, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Telco Systems.

Tzemach continued, “Our new T-Marc device enables cable operators to address a new market segment and generate revenue from business customers, while positioning themselves to compete with other communication service providers also targeting the business segment with enhanced data service offerings.”

Additionally, T-Marc 3308D is also a suitable choice for wholesale application and service providers that need to connect their business customers efficiently among sites and into the cloud.

T-Marc 3308D supports several systems, making it applicable to almost any business setting.  In addition to supporting CE 2.0, MPLS and IP (Layer 3), T-Marc 3308D provides full support for OpenFlow, NETCONF and YANG. This variety of support allows service providers to future-proof their infrastructure and prepare for SDN deployments. T-Marc 3308D also supports a broad set of hardware-based OAM tools to help service providers reduce operating expenses (OPEX), expedite deployments and make sure that all SLA agreements are met.

There are clearly several benefits to working with T-Marc 3308D. Currently, a number of large MSO cable operators in North America and Western Europe are conducting proof of concept (PoC) trials of the new device. However, if you’d like to take a look at T-Marc 3308D for yourself, Telco Systems will be exhibiting the new device along with the company’s other networking solutions at MEF16 in Baltimore, MD from Nov. 7-10.
