Telco Systems, Sun team on carrier-grade Ethernet solution

Telco Systems has certified interoperability of Sun Microsystems' Netra carrier-grade rack server platforms with Telco Systems’ carrier Ethernet/IP solutions.

The combination of Sun Netra servers and Telco Systems BiNOS-powered carrier Ethernet switches offers service providers and Global Network Equipment Providers a solution for delivering high-bandwidth, mission-critical applications to their subscribers. The testing performed demonstrated interoperability for streaming video, remote client, large file transfers and server/switch redundancy applications.

Throughput testing and interoperability between the Sun Netra T5220 and X4250 servers and Telco Systems’ BiNOS-powered switches included both ring and LAG protection scenarios to observe failover effects on applications running from server to server and server to Internet.
