Typical MPLS-TP Ring Application


The Loop-G7860 mPTN (MPLS/CE Packet Transport Network) is a new and cost-effective solution for transmitting many different data types, including traditional circuit-based traffic, over a packet-based transportation network.

By adopting MPLS-TP (Multi-Protocol Label Switching Transport Profile) and Carrier Ethernet technologies, the G7860 can transport Ethernet (EPL, EVPL, ELAN, EVC defined in MEF), E1/T1 TDMoE, and SDH CEP* traffic.

The unit is also equipped with OAM tools to perform diagnosis on the LSPs (Label Switched Paths) and pseudowires. The Loop-G7860 series is a perfect packet transport platform for IP-Mobile and lease-line applications containing hub, ring and mesh topologies.
