Designed to enable Carrier Ethernet transformation across the metro access network, the Alcatel-Lucent 7210 Service Access Switch (SAS) portfolio of compact Ethernet access and aggregation devices is optimized to deliver high-value Carrier Ethernet demarcation in support of business networking services and mobile backhaul applications. It also extends the reach of MPLS-enabled Carrier Ethernet aggregation into smaller network locations.
Available in seven principle variant options and providing comprehensive support for Ethernet, IP, MPLS, PBB, and MPLS-TP, along with advanced Hierarchical-QoS and OAM, the 7210 SAS provides the deployment flexibility, service richness and operational intelligence to extend Carrier Ethernet throughout the metro access network.
The 7210 SAS is Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified across E-Line, E-LAN, E-Tree and E-Access service types. As a member of the industry-leading Service Router product portfolio, the 7210 SAS runs the Alcatel-Lucent Service Router Operating System (SR OS) and is managed by the 5620 Service Aware Manager for seamless integration into end-to-end Carrier Ethernet and IP/MPLS solutions from Alcatel-Lucent.
