Current Analysis Reviews Telco Systems Products for the 100G Metro Market

Current Analysis issued a report on Telco Systems after the company launched two new 100GE switch platforms to address traffic growth from network core to access points.

Telco Systems released the T-Metro 8100 service aggregation platform with 100GE support, which is designed for service providers that need high reliability and flexibility to aggregate multiple services over 1GE, 10GE and 100GE port rates in a metro Ethernet environment. T-Metro 8100 provides carrier-grade service scalability and resiliency along with a comprehensive feature set that supports QoS and OAM capabilities.

Additionally, the company also introduced T-ATCA 510, new 100GE capacity AdvancedTCA switch blade which enables the rapid development of mission critical telecom applications, including LTE evolved packet core (EPC), IP-based multimedia services (IMS) and metro Ethernet aggregation service routing.

T-ATCA 510 is also SDN-enabled and provides an upgrade path that requires only the existing installed base to replace only the SDN-enabled switching element, while allowing continual support in the other computing blades.

Among the positives accentuated in the report are:

  • High-Capacity Metro Aggregation
  • 100G Links
  • QSFP28 Technology
  • SDN Support
  • 100G ATCA Blade


The report’s analytical summary gave these products 4 out of 5 stars for Perspective and Vendor Importance, writing “The T-Marc-8100 aggregation platform and the T-ATCA 510 blade provide increased connection capacity to address metro network bandwidth requirements. However, Telco Systems joins its competitors in applying more cost-effective 100G technologies to support metro traffic growth.”
