XTran product family


An XTran network consists of nodes, interconnected by Ethernet, and a management system called TXCare. A variety of node types is available providing the ideal solution for each location. The network is perfectly scalable from tens to thousands of nodes. Any topology can be constructed with the XTran portfolio. On the WAN side, gigabit Ethernet, 10Gbps and 40Gbps interfaces are available - evolving to 100Gbps. XTran comes with an unprecedented suite of interface cards for legacy equipment, including popular analogue circuits for operational telephony, as well as state-of-the art Ethernet/PoE.


Redundancy is key in order to maximize network availability. Common control, switching fabric, network synchronization, uplinks, MPLS tunnels, pseudowires and power modules can all be duplicated. Obviously, this results in spectacular MTBF figures for service availability.






State-of-the-art Network Management System


TXCare is an intuitive, graphical interface for the network administrator. It has built-in traffic engineering capabilities making sure that critical services are configured properly. Network failures are detected and diagnosed. Event logs and audit trails are available to perform in-depth investigations. On demand performance management is done with a few mouse clicks. Multi-functional views of the physical network, the programmed tunnels and its individual services are retrieved on the fly.
