Loop Telecom PTN 10GE MPLSCE Access Node G7860A mPTN / Loop-G7860A-S-FAN-ALM-G

SKU: 4115 Category:



G7860A supports both MPLS-TP and Carrier Ethernet (EPL, EVPL, EPLAN, EVC defined in MEF) for packet transportation. In addition to native Ethernet transport, G7860A can be used as the gateway for PDH and SDH/SONET networks to enter PSNs using Circuit Emulation and Encapsulation technologies. TDM encapsulation technologies of G7860A support TDMoE, TDMoIP, and TDMoMPLS, while Circuit Emulation technologies supported by G7860A are CESoPSN (Nx64K), SAToP (Unframed E1/T1), and CEP (SDH/SONET paths).

One G7860A with up to 85G packet switching capacity supports six 10GbE SFP+ and four 1GbE SFP built-in interfaces along with 16 E1/T1 built-in ports. With the two hot-swappable plug-in slots, the system capacity can be scaled up with additional E1/T1 ports, STM-n/OC-n, or GbE interfaces.

G7860A provides high availability and reliability required by Carrier, Power Utility, Military, Government and Transportation applications by supporting MPLS-TP LSP 1:1/1+1 protection with protection switching time smaller than 50ms, with section and end-to-end OAM for monitoring. The compact G7860A is only 1U height, but its powerful functions enable customers to construct a hub, ring, or mesh 10G packet network with ultimate ease.

Part Number Description Notes

G7860A-mPTN Datasheet


In addition to native Ethernet traffic, TDM circuits including DS0 timeslots, E1/T1 channels, and SDH/SONET paths can all be emulated as packets via pseudowires, multiplexed by G7860A, and switched to different sites via packet networks.



Protection scheme of an MPLS-TP network is standardized as part of the protocol. By deploying static nodes in the network, traffic transported by a tunnel between remote ends is protected by two label switching paths (LSPs) to achieve 1:1 or 1+1 protection.

In 1+1 mode, traffic is copied onto both working and protection LSPs. When receiving traffic, the remote LER only selects traffic from one of the two LSPs to decapsulate.



In 1:1 mode, traffic flows only on the working LSP. When a failure occurs on the working LSP, traffic is then switched to the protection LSP within 50 ms.
