8GESW is a high-speed card for the O9400R and O9500R series, and is specifically designed to transport Ethernet services over SDH/SONET networks (EoS). Customer LAN bridging types supported by 8GESW include EPL (E-line mode), EVPL (Virtual E-line mode), and EPLAN (E-LAN mode). Bridged traffic is encapsulated in SDH/SONET frames via framing protocols (GFP-F, LAPS, or BCP) and Virtual Concatenation (VCAT).
8GESW supports eight Gigabit Ethernet ports and a range of standard L2 switch functions, including VLAN, Q-in-Q, MAC learning, MSTP/RSTP, CoS and QoS, and etc.
An 8GESW’s total bandwidth for SDH/SONET transportation is either STM-4/OC-12 (8GES4SWA) or STM-16/OC-48* (8GES16SWA). Dual 8GESW cards can be mounted simultaneously to achieve card-level protection. Working card failure will trigger protection switch to the backup card without any traffic interruption. SDH/SONET paths can also be protected by SNCP/UPSR ring protection scheme.
