Som en forlengelse av kjerne, som f.eks. en ring/kjede mellom kjernenoder benyttes Routere eller Switcher avhengig av design. Vi leverer Juniper MX eller ACX5K Routere eller Juniper EX4K Switcher i Metro. Metro delen har ofte flere navn og er oftest det samme som distribusjon eller aggregering. I noen sammenhenger slås også Metro og Aksess sammen.

Innenfor metro, leverer vi blant annet:

Juniper Networks MX Series 5G Universal Routing Platform

"A robust portfolio of SDN-enabled routing platforms that provide industry-leading system capacity, density, and performance with unparalleled longevity. MX Series routers are key to digital transformation for service providers, cloud operators, and enterprises".

ACX Series Universal Metro Routers

"ACX Series routers simplify access and aggregation architectures by eliminating unnecessary layers and network overlays, dramatically reducing CapEx and OpEx.

These MEF CE 2.0-compliant routers address a variety of use cases, including of business Ethernet services, residential aggregation, small cell, mobile backhaul, and industrial field area networks".

EX Series Ethernet Switches

"Fixed configuration 1GbE and multigigabit access switches that deliver enterprise network access and are available with PoE and Media Access Control Security (MACsec) encryption".

Accedian Network Performance Elements/NIDs

Accedian Networks’ array of Network Performance Elements fuse ultra-fast, programmable packet processing with performance assurance, optimization and MEF-certified networking. A unique dual-plane FPGA architecture separates traffic conditioning, mapping, filtering and aggregation functions from test & measurement processing.
