Ericsson IP and Transport Solutions products were involved in EANTC’s interoperability test in Berlin. Focus areas included IPv6 Migration scenarios and Mobile Backhaul strategies, including ERPS and MPLS-TP interconnectivity, and the latest synchronization developments with IEEE 1588v2 and Synchronous Ethernet. The results of the interoperability test are being showcased at MPLS & Ethernet World Congress 2012 in Paris from February 7–10.

Ericsson’s innovative products have once again been put to the test to prove their compatibility with existing networks and devices. The tests, which involved equipment from 13 vendors, were conducted in Berlin by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC).

EANTC offers vendor-neutral consultancy and test facilities for network equipment manufacturers, service providers and enterprise customers and is internationally recognized as an objective test center.

The results of the tests will be showcased at the EANTC and Ericsson booths at the 14th edition of MPLS & Ethernet World Congress in Paris from February 7-10, which is open to the public. Ericsson’s successful participation in the EANTC tests showcases the company’s support of the latest packet transport standards and technologies. Support of these standards and technologies is becoming increasingly important to ensure network transformation and a smooth migration from time-division multiplexing (TDM) to packet-based networks.

A white paper with detailed test results is available for download on the EANTC website.
