The MSW-4428X is positioned as a layer 2+ Gigabit access switch solution. It is equipped with 24 100Base-FX/1000Base-X dual speed SFP slots, 4 ports GbE (10/100/1000Base-T) ports and 4 1000Base-X/10GBase-X dual speed SFP⁺ uplink slots. The MSW-4428X offers the best flexibility and scalability for operators or service providers to deploy their Metro Ethernet network. With the deployment of MSW-4428X, operators or service providers can flexibly provision the bandwidth of either 100Mbps or 1000Mbps as well as uplink connection of Gigabit or 10G speed upon their service applications. The MSW-4428X has built-in dual power supplies to enable power redundancy and enhance high network availability.
Aimed at Metro Ethernet applications, the specifications of MSW-4428X fully meet the attributes of Carrier Ethernet proposed by MEF (Metro Ethernet Forum). It complies with CE2.0 standard to support E-Line/E-LAN/E-Tree/E-Access service and enables the bandwidth profile configuration delivering SLA (Service Level Agreement) for end-to-end performance characteristics as well as Ethernet OAM functionality to support carrier grade service OAM management rapidly detecting and recovering from the network incidents in real time.
