New T-Marc 3308D demarcation device supports MEF CE 2.0 and enables delivery of SLA-grade services for business customers over existing DOCSIS networks

MANSFIELD, MA, November 3, 2016 — Telco Systems, a leading provider of innovative CE 2.0, MPLS, IP and SDN & NFV solutions, today announced that the company has released its new T-Marc 3308D demarcation device for cable MSOs to offer advanced data services to business customers.

T-Marc 3308D is a DOCSIS-enabled demarcation device that supports MEF CE 2.0, MPLS, IP and SDN networking capabilities. T-Marc 3308D opens new market opportunities for cable operators to now offer business customers many advanced data services, such as Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), L2VPN, L3VPN, and inter-sites and data-center connectivity, over their existing DOCSIS networks. 

“Over the past ten plus years, many cable operators have successfully added telephony and data services to their core television content services, although these service expansion efforts have focused mainly on residential customers,” explained Raanan Tzemach, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Telco Systems. “Our new T-Marc device enables cable operators to address a new market segment and generate revenue from business customers, while positioning themselves to compete with other communication service providers also targeting the business segment with enhanced data service offerings.”

T-Marc 3308D is also suitable for wholesale application and service providers that need to connect their business customers efficiently among sites and into the cloud. 

In addition to supporting CE 2.0, MPLS and IP (Layer 3), T-Marc 3308D provides full support for OpenFlow, NETCONF and YANG, positioning service providers to future proof their infrastructure and be ready for SDN deployments.

T-Marc 3308D supports a broad set of hardware-based OAM tools to help service providers to reduce operating expenses (OPEX) expedite deployments and assure that all SLA agreements are met.

A number of large MSO cable operators in North America and Western Europe are currently conducting PoC trials of Telco Systems’ new T-Marc 3308D device.

Telco Systems will be exhibiting T-Marc 3308D along with the company’s entire portfolio of networking solutions at MEF16 in Baltimore, United States on November 7 – 10 at Booth #103.
