The Overture 4800 10GigE Carrier Ethernet edge platform was developed in conjunction with leading service providers and is unique in three fundamental areas:

Richness of the feature set
The Overture 4800 offers service providers a cost-effective way to differentiate their services and make available increased bandwidth for enterprise access, mobile backhaul and key vertical applications such as financial services, datacenter connectivity, cloud computing backhaul, hub aggregation and carrier network demarcation at the ENNI. With support for over a thousand of service flows, fine-grained quality-of-service, G.8032 Ethernet protection rings and industry standard performance monitoring and fault management, the Overture 4800 boasts the richest feature set in the industry.

Operational flexibility
10 Gigabit Ethernet provides the most cost effective scalability for many different applications at the network edge.  Having a single platform that can support many scenarios reduces operational expenses for the service provider. The Overture 4800 is built on a modular architecture supporting combinations of up to six 10GigE and up to sixteen 1GigE interfaces with a wide selection of pluggable optics, including SFP, SFP+ and XFP, with software-selectable WAN-PHY/LAN-PHY.

Carrier class performance
As service providers make the shift away from SONET and SDH networks, it is critical that the Carrier Ethernet replacement is capable of the same reliable operation. The compact, temperature-hardened Overture 4800 is designed for the demanding environments of the telco central office, outside plant cabinet, datacenter or enterprise wiring closet. In addition, the Overture 4800 provides the resiliency and monitoring features required for high-performance financial services and data center applications.
