Resilient and redundant design
A quick recovery and round-the-clock network is vital for service providers to establish a robust network. The MES3500 series provides comprehensive features to make sure network is well operated. The IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation feature reduces network downtime by providing redundant paths and bandwidth aggregation to critical connections, while IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP) allow immediate recovery from failed connections by sending packets via the backup link.
Digital Diagnostics Monitoring Interface (DDMI) SFP support
The enhanced digital interface allows real-time access to the device operating parameters, and it includes optional digital features such as soft control and monitoring of SFP I/O signals. In addition, the MES3500 series fully incorporates the functionality needed to implement digital alarms and warnings from fault isolation and failure prediction tasks as well as component monitoring features, among others.
With the digital diagnostic monitoring interface, the MES3500 series enables users to easily detect packet loss from transceivers and aging cables; therefore users can not only avoid troubles such as unstable networking services, but also boost productivity significantly.
