Carrier Ethernet Switch

Service providers today are focused on transforming their networks and business models to operate more efficiently and profitably. To meet these challenges, service providers need to extend their reach and offer differentiated services while reducing both cost and complexity.

The 6910 Ethernet Access Switch (EAS) provides a flexible, easy-to-deploy solution to address these challenges. Optimized for pure-play Ethernet access within metro areas, the 6910 Switch supports applications for business Ethernet services, mobile backhaul, and next-generation broadband offerings. In addition, it offers an energy-efficient and small form-factor solution that extends wire-speed Ethernet services to the network edge without compromising on reliability.

The 6910 Switch helps service providers reduce operational costs by providing greater flexibility and efficiency. In addition to supporting multiple fiber or copper configurations on a single switch, it allows the same ports to be configured to connect directly to the customer or as a network interface on the service side. This ideally positions the 6910 Switch at the edge of a broadband access network for Ethernet service demarcation, access, and aggregation — enabling service providers to economically deliver high-value Ethernet services.

Ruggedized for Resiliency 

The Extreme 6910 Ethernet Access Switch not only operates outside a wiring closet, it actually operates outside. That’s why it’s built to withstand dust and extreme temperature with worry-free maintenance. So you’re assured that your high-value services are reliably and cost-effectively delivered.

Remote Management

Rolling trucks to reconfigure switches is not an option. Fortunately, the Extreme 6910 Ethernet Access Switch has comprehensive remote management capabilities that eliminate service calls.

Prioritized Services for Diverse Needs

Give your customers premium service at an affordable price. The Extreme 6910 Ethernet Access Switch provides fine-grained and flexible control of your traffic, making it easy to manage and prioritize traffic at the access layer.
