Omnitron Launches Compact and Cost-Effective microNID

  • Omnitron Systems Technology
IRVINE, CA — Omnitron Systems Technology, a provider of Carrier Ethernet demarcation solutions, announced the launch of the iConverter microNID. This low-latency, compact and cost-effective network interface device (NID) enables service providers to easily provision and monitor SLA-guaranteed business, 4G/LTE macro cell and small cell backhaul Ethernet services.

microNID Overview
"Unlike standard network interface devices which operate in a store-and-forward mode, the microNID operates in a cut-through mode minimizing latency and enabling service providers to deliver and monitor the performance of extremely low latency services for time critical financial applications", said Steve Mood, Omnitron's CTO. "The microNID also enables Cable MSOs to deliver Carrier Class monitored business and backhaul services over their existing DOCSIS networks with guaranteed quality of service."

iConverter microNIDTM Features
The microNID supports up to 64 simultaneous Ethernet Virtual Connections (EVCs). Class of Service (CoS) Performance Monitoring and Fault Management per EVC are accomplished by utilizing hardware-based ITU-T Y.1731 and IEEE 802.1ag protocols. The microNID operates as a Maintenance End Point (MEP) for end-to-end fault management or as a Maintenance Intermediate Point (MIP) for fault isolation.

The microNID features built-in ITU-T-Y.1564 and RFC 2544 test heads and supports full wire speed multi-flow Service Activation Testing of throughput, latency, jitter and frame loss. The microNID also supports third party test equipment loop up/loop down activation. The two-port microNID is available with two SFP ports, two RJ-45 ports, or one SFP and one RJ-45 port. The SFP port supports 100M or 1000M fiber and 100/1000BASE-T copper transceivers. The microNID can be powered with an external AC/DC power adapter, with direct DC power, or with Power over Ethernet (PoE). It supports redundant power using a combination of PoE power and AC/DC or direct DC power sources. The microNID can be managed through a serial console port, Telnet, or SNMPv1/v2c/v3. It is integrated into Omnitron's NetOutlook EMS (Element Management System).
