Key features
Product description

Telecom Operators are now upgrading to high speed 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s links to support the high-bandwidth applications and systems on which customers, business partners, subscribers and Internet of Things (IoT) implementers rely on and expect. NFV adoption and 5G roll out are pushing on the same direction: in this context, Network Visibility is still a must have, to provide the relevant data to monitoring and security tools.

Aster A-630C and A-660C are the Microtel Innovation solutions for high-speed links packet brokering: they host 32 x 40/100 Gb/s interfaces in 1U space (A-630C), and 64 x 40/100 Gb/s interfaces in 2U space (A-660C).

The devices stand out for being best in class solutions thanks to their L2GRE/NVGRE tunnel encapsulation and de-capsulation feature, which allows forwarding data traffic to the vProbes within the NFV Infrastructure and enables the capability of backhauling data to remote tools.

Moreover, they represent a very dense solution for 10 Gb/s and 25 Gb/s packet brokering, being capable to host up to 128 x 10 Gb/s or 128 x 25 Gb/s. In fact, they support breakout cables on the QSFP ports, to individual 4 x 10 Gb/s or 4 x 25 Gb/s interfaces.
