Overture Releases Overture 6500 Service Aggregation and Switching Platform

Overture announced the latest release of Overture 6500 service aggregation and switching platform. This release includes a new 8-slot chassis and features that enhance service assurance and service availability. With a new high-capacity chassis and rich feature set, the Overture 6500 raises the standard for delivering performance-assured Carrier Ethernet over any access method, including fiber, E-Access, copper, SONET, and TDM, with full resiliency. The 6500 is a key component of Overture's Ensemble Open Services Architecture (Ensemble OSA), an open platform for service automation and network virtualization. Ensemble orchestration and control software activates the Overture 6500 to build connectivity in the OSA between end customers and virtualized network functions. This allows service providers to create connections among service end points and to virtual network functions to create an end-to-end service. The newly introduced 6508 8-slot chassis joins the 3-slot 6504 released in 2013. Leveraging the same interface modules and processors as the 6504, the new 6508 chassis brings scale to service providers with high density Ethernet service deployments. The 6508 chassis takes service density to a new level, serving combinations of up to 192 1GigE and 18 10GigE optical, 768 Ethernet over Copper pairs, 32 Ethernet over SONET, 2688 Ethernet over DS1s from a single 19 chassis. The latest 6500 software release adds cross-card bonding capabilities for copper and TDM groups to the 6500's existing cross-card link aggregation and cross-card G.8032v2 Ethernet ring capabilities. Cross-card bonding improves resiliency and eliminates the need for service providers to move pairs from one card to another when addressing pair growth. The 6500 cross-card bonding approach consumes no additional card slots and requires no dedicated switching cards, which means service providers don't pay a premium for high availability and easy growth. With dramatic increases in service operations and maintenance (SOAM) processing throughput, the new software release gives service providers the ability to extend Y.1731 Service Assurance and Fault Management to over 3,000 services and implement high speed ring protection signaling.

Overture Introduces 65vSE Open Platform for Virtualization at the Service Edge

Overture announced it has added to its product portfolio with the introduction of the 65 Virtual Service Edge. The 65vSE is the new member of the Overture 65 product family and the latest platform enabled with Overture's Ensemble Open Service Architecture, the open architecture for software-defined services at the metro service edge. The Overture 65vSE combines Carrier Ethernet access with the benefits of virtualization, openness and software-defined services. A single platform for both services and network access, the Overture 65vSE allows for a myriad of virtual network functions to be turned up, turned down, expanded and removed dynamically so that compute and storage resources are used only when needed. This technology opens the door for new on-demand applications that service providers can deploy instantly at a customer premise to simplify operations and unleash new service innovation.

Overture Unveils Two Key Components of Ensemble OSA(TM) for Service Automation and Network Functions Virtualization

Overture announced the availability of its Ensemble Service Orchestrator (ESO) and Ensemble Network Controller (ENC), two key pieces of its open architecture for software-defined services at the metro service edge. Ensemble OSA(TM) is the industry's first complete and open platform for service automation and network functions virtualization (NFV) that is built specifically for the service provider metro edge. Leveraging open APIs for deployment into any service provider architecture, Ensemble Service Orchestrator and Ensemble Network Controller may be deployed together as a system or integrated independently. The Ensemble Service Orchestrator is an open, extensible carrier-class NFV service lifecycle management and orchestration system that coordinates virtual resources and physical network elements to create, activate and assure services using one or more virtual network functions. ESO uses the OpenStack(TM) cloud controller -- bundled with ESO -- to manage the virtual compute environment, including virtual machines, virtual switches and top-of-rack datacenter switches. For management of the physical wide area network traffic flows, ESO leverages Overture's Ensemble Network Controller but can also be integrated with other third-party network controllers. The Ensemble Network Controller is a service-aware network controller and management system for the Carrier Ethernet metro service edge. With native support for all Overture network elements, ENC is extensible to support third-party network elements and automates service creation, service activation, device detection, fault management and performance monitoring. By presenting a complete network picture, ENC helps service providers add new services and virtualized network functions without compromising existing network operations.
