Transport and Ethernet

Altran’s software framework solution for transport and metro carrier ethernet switches reduces development time and cost by providing pre-integrated features on leading chipsets so NEMs can keep their development moving at future speed.

Altran software framework solution for transport and metro carrier Ethernet switches is designed and optimized for mobile fronthaul, midhaul and backhaul, carrier Ethernet aggregation switches, and packet-optical transport systems. The software framework is comprised of MEF CE 2.0 services, L2 /L3 VPN services, IP/MPLS, MPLS-TP, protection mechanisms, Ethernet and MPLS OAM. Transport and metro framework provides significant time to market advantage by providing pre-integrated features on leading chipsets from Broadcom XGS and DNX families, Marvel xCAT chipsets.

By including these standard capabilities in their devices, network equipment manufacturers can reduce development time so they can focus on advanced application development.

Primary markets for the framework include:

  • Carrier Ethernet and Metro Ethernet device
  • Cellular Fronthaul, Mid haul and Backhaul
  • Optical aggregation
  • Optical transport network node
  • Packet microwave backhaul
  • LTE backbone infrastructure
  • Managed Ethernet switch
