The MSW-4424CS is positioned as a layer 2+ Gigabit access switch solution. It equips 20 100Base-FX/1000Base-X dual speed SFP slots, 4 ports GbE combo (10/100/1000Base-T or 100/1000Base-X SFP) ports and 4 1000Base-X/10GBase-X dual speed SFP+ uplink slots. The MSW-4424CS offers the best flexibility and scalability for the operators or service providers to deploy their Metro Ethernet network. With the deployment of MSW-4424CS, the operators or service providers can flexibly provision the bandwidth either 100Mbps or 1000Mbps as well as uplink connection of Gigabit or 10G speed upon their service applications. The MSW-4424CS builds in dual power modules to enable power redundancy function and enhance the high network availability.
To aim at the Metro Ethernet application, the specifications of MSW-4424CS fully meet the attributes of Carrier Ethernet proposed by MEF (Metro Ethernet Forum). It comply MEF 9 standard to support E-Line/E-LAN service, MEF 14 standard to enable the bandwidth profile configuration delivering SLA (Service Level Agreement) for end-to-end performance characteristics as well as Ethernet OAM functionality to support carrier grade service OAM management rapidly detecting and recovering from the network incidents in real time. MSW-4424CS supports timing synchronization features (Sync.E & IEEE 1588v2) to enhance and migrate a carrier grade network for mobile backhaul application.
