Overture 1400

Business Services
The Overture1400 enables 1 Mbps-1 Gbps Ethernet services to single or multi-tenant business to any location with native Ethernet or by leveraging existing SONET/SDH, DS3/E3 or DS1/E1.  Sub-50ms Link Aggregation or SONET/SDH 1+1 and a 99.999% availability design deliver the reliability required by enterprise customers. Four-stage hierarchical-QoS, dedicated queues per flow, complete Ethernet OAM and flow-level service differentiation deliver sophisticated enterprise services.

Mobile Backhaul
The Overture 1400 enables Ethernet for 3G and 4G services to one or multiple carriers at the cell tower. With a flexible interface slot, the Overture 1400 enables service to all towers: on-net or leased networks, Ethernet over fiber or radio. It can also leverage existing infrastructure with Ethernet over SONET/SDH, DS3/E3 or DS1/E1. A compact, hardened solution fits in any tower cabinet.  With 99.999 percent availability, sub-50ms Link Aggregation or SONET 1+1 and Ethernet OAM for 128 EVCs, the Overture 1400 enables a carrier-grade scalable solution.

Datacenter and Private Cloud
The Overture 1400 is ideal for datacenter and cloud based backhaul solutions, providing the flexibility to leverage native Ethernet or existing SONET/SDH/PDH infrastructure.  A low-latency hardware design and flow-level service differentiation for over 128 EVCs with complete Ethernet OAM enables every location to have a seamless connection to the datacenter or cloud.

Wholesale Ethernet Services
The Overture 1400 has the breadth and depth of carrier features for wholesale Ethernet services, including 128 EVCs, 1024 queues, 3-layers of simultaneous MEPS per EVC, triple VLAN tag management and a four-stage hierarchical-QoS.
