It enables 100Ge Demarcation with 100Ge line-rate OAM tests, managed services like L2/ L3 VPN, aggregates impressive number of 1/10Ge interfaces and hence assuring rapid adaptability to service providers’ changing service offerings while strengthening evolving business strategy.

  • Up to six 100Ge interfaces
  • Dedicated 100Ge OAM hardware
  • Interchangeable modules – Expand-as-you-grow
  • L2/L3 VPNs over MPLS functionality
  • Hot swappable power supplies and fans
  • CPU redundancy


The T-Metro 8106 offers Industry-leading capabilities. It combines a high-density, standalone and SLA-enabling Carrier Ethernet platform backed by powerful switching capacity of up to 1.2Tb. Its service scalability, carrier-class resiliency, and advanced features include L2 & L3 VPN, IPv4/6 support, line-rate OAM, enable multiple use cases like: Off Net aggregation, Direct Internet Access (DIA), CoC (Carrier of Carrier) demarcation, 100Ge Fan-out and 100Ge Add & Drop.

Telco Systems T-Metro 8106 is offered as a basic future-proof 2U high full rack unit, with optional cards for expanding the number of ports. Its carrier-grade features include hot-swappable fans, dual power supplies (AC/DC), 100GE OAM, CPU redundancy.

It enables:

  1. OPEX and CAPEX Reduction: The SDD significantly reduces cost of deployment and management with its single, flexible platform. One platform that handles impressive number of interfaces for multi-service
  2. Business agility growth: The SDD offers rapid deployment of new services and services growth at a controllable pace. The modularity design supports multiple use cases, hence saving on training and
