SHDSL CPE are ideal for business applications with support for symmetric bandwidth and the ability to bond multiple copper loops for high speed connectivity.
Ethernet over SHDSL offers the high-bandwidth symmetrical Ethernet services that are demanded by businesses and enterprises. EtherXtend access devices can be used back-to-back for single-line deployments, in multi-point applications where one EtherXtend acts as a mini-aggregation point, or as powerful CPE for use with either Zhone's MALC or MXK.
The ultimate flexibility in Ethernet Access comes with the addition of PseudoWire Edge to Edge Emulation (PWE3). Using PWE3 and optional T1/E1 or V.35 interfaces, EtherXtend is able to carry legacy circuit traffic across the newly created Ethernet infrastructure. Now TDM connectivity, PBX interconnection, and other legacy applications are supported directly over Ethernet. Voice, video and data -- over IP or TDM -- all using a single Ethernet Access platform.
