Omnitron in the News

Irvine, CA – June 16, 2014 - Omnitron Systems Technology, ( a leader in Carrier Ethernet demarcation, today announced the launch of the iConverter® XM5 10G Network Interface Device (NID). The XM5 is an MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 compliant NID that provides 10 Gigabit and Gigabit service demarcation and aggregation for wholesale Ethernet, 4G/LTE mobile backhaul, small cell, business and cloud services.

The XM5 is the smallest, full-function 10G NID available, and has the lowest power consumption. It features three 10G SFP+ or XFP ports and up to four SFP or 10/100/1000 RJ-45 gigabit ports, and functions as a UNI or NNI. The XM5 can be deployed as a 10G ring node with aggregation ports for 10G and gigabit spoke links, or as a demarcation NID on a 10G access link with gigabit and 10G customer-facing ports for multiple tenants. It is available with redundant AC or DC power inputs, and supports extended temperature ranges from -40º to 75ºC.

By providing Carrier Ethernet 2.0 demarcation for a variety of 10G and gigabit services, the XM5 simplifies operations, and reduces the need to inventory multiple NID models. Gigabit SFPs can be installed in the 10G ports to provide a seamless upgrade path to future 10G services.

The iConverter XM5 provides comprehensive support of the latest carrier-class service activation testing, performance monitoring, connectivity fault management and protection standards to enable rapid service deployments, and Service Level Agreements for performance assurance and availability. These advanced capabilities maximize service provider revenues, increase operational efficiency, reduce operating costs, and improve customer satisfaction.
