Vecima Launches Entra Access Switch

Entra's Outdoor 10Gb Network Switch extends fiber network capacity

VICTORIA, BC--(Marketwired - May 29, 2017) - Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX: VCM), an experienced designer and manufacturer of innovative technology in the broadband equipment market, is pleased to announce the launch of the Entra Access Switch at ANGA COM 2017.

Vecima's Entra Access Switch is designed to extend the capacity of networks with insufficient fibers while minimizing the use of expensive digital optics. The Entra Access Switch significantly reduces capital costs for short run fiber extensions, deep fiber deployments, and DOCSIS 3.1 node aggregations, ensuring the maximum ROI from existing short and long range fiber links. An outdoor centrally managed 8 port x 10GbE weatherproof network switch, it is capable of supporting Carrier Ethernet services in almost any deployment environment. A unique feature of the Entra Access Switch is its rugged versatility. Being strand mountable, it can be placed at the edge of a broadband access network to support businesses, mobile network backhaul and DOCSIS 3.1 distributed access architecture (DAA) aggregation.

"In terms of customer reach and use, the capabilities of the Entra Access Switch are quite broad," said Sumit Kumar, Vecima's President and CEO. "We're seeing several use cases emerging, many of which are tied to fibre savings, fibre-to-commercial premises, and empowering distributed access where using the Entra Access Switch to feed DOCSIS nodes deeper in the network is an elegant approach."
