Wholesale Carrier Ethernet Demarcation Solutions

iConverter HybridNID® with Virtual NID Functions

hybridnid_vsmThe iConverter HybridNID is a Network Interface Device that enables the delivery of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 E-Access services  across multiple-operator networks, and provides independent SLA verification when two Service Providers are delivering one Ethernet service. With the iConverter HybridNID installed at the customer premises, both a Service Provider and Access Provider (Wholesale Operator) can provision, manage and monitor the Ethernet service.

The HybridNID supports the features and functionality of a conventional NID and is Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified to provide wholesale E-Access service demarcation. The HybridNID also complies with IEEE 802.1ag Connectivity Fault Management and ITU-T Y.1731 Performance Monitoring. These end-to-end Service OAM standards enable the efficient detection and rapid isolation of potential service problems, enabling SLA assurance while reducing Operational costs (OPEX).

Conventional NIDs are a challenge when Service Providers deliver services outside of their network (off-net), and must partner with Wholesale Operators to provide Ethernet business services or mobile backhaul.

Omnitron’s iConverter HybridNID provides a single platform that delivers the Ethernet service via one User Network Interface and enables both the Service Provider and the Wholesale Operator to manage and monitor the Ethernet service.
