Metrobility Optical Systems has expanded its E-Services Network Interface Device (NID) product line to include 10/100Mbps support as well as the ability to support rate limiting, Q-in-Q tagging and four service classes for traffic prioritization.

The R821 10/100 E-Services NID consists of a 10/100BASE-T user port and 100Mbps optical network port, which the company says creates a secure customer premise equipment (CPE) demarcation point for point-to-point optical Ethernet services in metro area networks.

The device offers a set of operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) management options through a multi-level management approach for complete, end-to-end management of Ethernet services.

Troubleshooting tools include optical power monitoring, quality of equipment monitoring, and quality of line monitoring to enable fast fault identification and minimize the need for expensive truck rolls.

The R821 also provides the ability to test the copper line quality between the NID and the customer equipment to locate any link problems to the subscriber’s network.
