Ethernet over TDM

Leverage existing SDH/SONET, E1/DS1, E3/DS3 infrastructure to cost effectively deliver Ethernet and IP services.

Business customers are asking for Ethernet services. But, much of your network infrastructure is built on a SDH/SONET/TDM foundation that wasn’t designed for Ethernet. With Overture's Ethernet over TDM solutions, you can repurpose this network to deliver premium Ethernet services, accelerating the transformation to Carrier Ethernet infrastructure and services.

Overture’s Ethernet over TDM solutions are Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Certified, and enable service providers to bring performance-assured Ethernet services to customers when fiber access is not an option. These solutions allow providers to reduce and defer capital expenses compared to building and integrating a complete Ethernet overlay network. Customers retain reliability of underlying SDH/SONET/TDM transport while adding fast service turn-up and standards based mapping protocols. Performance assurance is delivered with industry standard OAM protocols such as ITU Y.1731, IEEE 802.1ag and ITU Y.1564.
