Ethos Networks has successfully completed interoperability testing with Nortel’s Provider Backbone Bridging Traffic Engineering equipment (PBB-TE) to boost Ethernet capabilities for carriers and service providers.

The announcement follows testing by the two companies at Nortel’s laboratory facilities in Ottawa.

During the testing, Ethos’ Network Management System (NMS), part of the company’s Carrier PBB-TE product offering, managed and monitored a Nortel PBB-TE network.

PBB-TE is an Ethernet services technology developed by Nortel.

Ethos FCAPS NMS and Nortel PBB-TE network interoperability involved managing and monitoring a PBB-TE network, including service & trunk management.
