Carrier Ethernet Edge Switch

Nokia Siemens Networks A-2200 Carrier Ethernet Edge Switch is part of

the complete NSN end-to-end packet transport solution the comprises
access, aggregation core and management.
A-2200 support a diverse selection of services and applications which
include: Enterprise, Mobile Backhaul and Converged networks.
A-2200 is a ,modular multi-service switch, supporting both Ethernet and
legacy TDM applications.
This 1.5U MEF-certified device is equipped with two redundant hotswappable AC or DC power supplies, redundant fans and Dry Contact
alarm interface for alarm management.
A-2200 is full managed by the ASPEN management system offering
end-to-end management solution and enables efficient point & click
configuration, SLA measurement, traffic engineering and network
resource allocation.

Carrier-class features such as
redundant power supplies, N+1 fan
redundancy and dry contact
Multi-service enabled, including ELine, E-LAN, E-Tree, and CES
services, on a single device
CES support including E1/T1, DS3,
OC3/STM-1 with 1+1 APS protection
High Bandwidth & Capacity 4x1G
uplink and up to 20x1G access ports
Support for Hard QoS such as CIR,
EIR, H-QoS, Shaping and WRR
Support for 50ms carrier-class
protection, Multi failure protection
and In-Service-SW-Upgrade (ISSU).
High performance and very low
delay and jitter
Standard OAM mechanism and
protocol support (IEEE802.1ag,

With the rapid increase in the need

for high bandwidth, and the equally
impressive increase in the
performance of Ethernet within the
LAN environment, the demand for
metro network performance has
never been greater.
The biggest challenge for service

providers of all types is to deliver

not only cost-effective and scalable
performance, but also, and more
importantly, a Carrier Ethernet
solution that facilitates new
services, rapid and easy
provisioning and dramatically
reduced operational costs.

Strong management

The A-2200 can be deployed as highend CPE working with the Nokia
Siemens Networks A-4000 and A-8000
series of Carrier Ethernet Core
Switches and Nokia Siemens Networks
ASPEN management system. In
addition, the A-2200 can be used as an
aggregation switch working together
with the A-210 or A-1180 demarcation
device to provide a very cost-effective
access solution. The A-2200 will also
be part of the NSN CET NextGeneration solution and fully
interoperate with CET NG switches.
Using these products in conjunction,
carriers and service providers can
construct a powerful Metro
infrastructure with high performance
and efficiency, designed to quickly
deliver profitable communication
The A-2200 features 8Gbps nonblocking switching capacity. It offers up
to 2,000 protected simultaneous
connections supporting point-to-point,
point-to-multipoint and multipoint-tomultipoint services. Customer traffic can
be mapped to connections using
multiple and flexible rules from layer 1
(port-based) up to layer 3 (IP Address,
Protocol Type and DSCP bits).

Mobile Backhauling applications
A-2200 can be used as 2G/3G
aggregator in tail sites, as tail site
aggregator at Hub sites and as scalable
aggregator at MWR Edge sites.
The A-2200 as a MBH solutions offers:
TDM and Ethernet interfaces
supporting 2/3G and future LTE.
Support of E1, T1, DS-3, OC-3/STM-1
Advanced synchronization
mechanisms (ACR, SyncE,
QOS assurances for delay, jitter and
Shaping per port
Standard OAM mechanisms and
APS 1+1 protection of STM-1/OC-3
ASPEN E2E Management

MEF-Compliant Service Attributes

The A-2200 delivers flexible, affordable
Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet
access interfaces, supporting point-topoint, point-to-multipoint and multipointto-multipoint services. Customer traffic
can be mapped to connections using
any combination of rules from layer 1 to
layer 3.
The A-2200 fully supports SLAs defined
by MEF service definitions including:
Committed Information Rate (CIR)
Excess Information Rate (EIR)
Priority for bounded delay and jitter
Protection levels (sub-10sec or sub50ms)
In addition to pure Ethernet
connectivity, service providers can
migrate legacy TDM traffic onto their
Carrier Ethernet network using Nokia
Siemens Networks Circuit Emulation
Services modules that provide ITU-T
compliant E1/T1, E3/T3 and STM1/OC-3 interfaces.

Full Protection and Reliability

The A-2200 has been designed to
deliver the SONET-like reliability that
carriers demand, but with the price,
performance and scalability of Carrier
Ethernet. The protection mechanism of
the A-2200 is similar to MPLS Fast
Reroute, and thus can achieve sub50ms fail-over time.
It also offers an end-to-end protection
mechanism that protects against any
types of failure within sub-10seconds,
according to service profiles, and in
addition, Multi-Failure protection and InService-SW-Upgrade

Industry-Leading Service Provisioning

and Management Solution Nokia
Siemens Networks Service Provisioning
for Ethernet
Nokia Siemens Networks ASPEN
solution is the industrys simplest
network management and service
management platform for managing
Carrier Ethernet services. ASPEN
delivers enhanced service management
capabilities for rapid service
provisioning, comprehensive network
and element management,
performance and fault management,
and seamless integration with existing
OSS applications. ASPEN software
allows carriers and service providers to
reliably and cost-effectively manage all
elements of the network to deliver the
most reliable, scalable and costeffective Ethernet service offerings.
Using a multi-layered modular
architecture, ASPEN software supports
large, dynamic carrier-class networks
and is ideal for minimizing hardware
deployment time, service planning,
provisioning and monitoring.
