The Extreme Copper CES7000 Series of Ethernet switch is designed with the demands of the Managed Ring, ITS and Mobile Backhaul markets in mind. The Extreme Copper Ethernet switch line is designed to be installed in either an air- conditioned office or in an outdoor cabinet located on the corner of an intersection or beside the highway.

The Extreme Copper Ethernet switches are temperature hardened and operate from –34C to +74C, making them ideal for operation in harsh environments while not sacrificing any features. The Extreme Copper Ethernet switches provide VLAN and ID tagged VLAN (IEEE802.1Q), IGMP snooping, spanning tree algorithm (IEEE 802.1D), IEEE 802.3 compliant flow control, port prioritization and MAC based trunking.

The Extreme Copper Ethernet switches provide a range of management options for remote installations. Choose from SNMP, Telnet/FTP, and web based management tools.

The CES7000 is a mobile backhaul optimized Carrier Ethernet Switch. It is designed to support carrier grade PTP with the accuracy needed for mobile backhaul. It can operate in PTP master, slave, BC and TC modes. It is designed for backhaul and network edge applications by handling a full suite of Operations Administration and Maintenance (OAM) functions, including Maintenance Entity End Points (MEPs) for both MEP-Up and MEP-Down. The CES7000 supports full hierarchical Quality of Service (QoS), including policing and traffic shaping. All timestamping functionality is implemented on a packet-by-packet basis, including asymmetry corrections for known asymmetries, and frame CRC updates.

The CES7000 Ethernet switch provides up to 10 ports of connectivity. The switch can be delivered in a variety of configurations. For example, the CES7000 can be configured for ten 10/100/1000BaseTx copper ports or eight 10/100/1000BaseTx copper ports and two 100/1000/2500 BaseX SFP fiber optic ports. The CES7000 series switches utilize standard SFP plug-in modules in either multimode or single- mode configurations to provide installation flexibility. POE capability is also an available option. Contact the factory for available configurations.

The Extreme Copper CES7000 is available in several mounting configurations. The CES7000 is available as a shelf mount, wall mount with mounting ears, 19” rack mount or an option for a space saving plug-in to the input file of the roadside cabinet.

Management of the switch can be accomplished thru the local RS232 port or by an HTTP web based Ethernet Graphical User Interface (GUI).
