The T-Marc® 280 is an intelligent, remotely-managed demarcation devices which has been purpose-built to integrate networking, testing and assurance capabilities. Like other members of the T-Marc family, T-Marc 280 supports advanced Layer 2 networking using Telco Systems' AccessEthernet™ technology to allow total flexibility in deployment, provisioning, and delivery of Carrier Ethernet services.
Two tri-speed customer access ports enable providers to support two separate customers on a single device. The second access port may also be used to create a DMZ (demilitarized zone or data management zone) to separate external (public) traffic from the customer’s internal network. Each access port supports a single EVC and UNI with four traffic classes. Dual network uplinks include an SFP-based fiber and a combo tri-speed/fiber port. The dual network ports provide a rich set of protection options, including link aggregation, resilient, link, and Spanning Tree protocols.
Standards-based OAM features include IEEE 802.3ah link OAM, IEEE 802.1ag connectivity fault management, and ITU-T Y.1731 fault and performance monitoring for end-to-end Ethernet services. Physical and virtual networking capabilities provide automated address management and discovery, bandwidth profiles, advanced traffic classes, and complete control over how subscriber traffic is transported across a service provider’s network.

T-Marc® 300 Series
Ethernet Service Demarcation and Extension Solution
The T-Marc® Ethernet Service Demarcation and Extension product line from Telco Systems provides intelligent and remotely managed, multiport customer-located equipment (CLE) to deliver managed converged services (voice, video and data) over virtual Ethernet, MPLS/VPLS and IP networks.
The T-Marc allows service providers to deliver multiple services on separate customer interfaces, including multiple services over a single customer interface. Because each service is isolated, providers can troubleshoot each individual service without impacting others. Applications are prioritized over different traffic-engineered paths, multi-level Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) is used to measure and ensure provisioned Service Level Agreements (SLA), and security controls are embedded to ensure protection against denial-ofservice attacks.
Advanced Layer 2 Networking using Telco Systems’ AccessEthernet™ allows total flexibility in deployment, provisioning, and delivery of Ethernet services. Physical and virtual networking capabilities provide automated address management and discovery, bandwidth profiles, advanced traffic classes, and complete control over how subscriber traffic is transported across a service provider’s network.

T-Marc® 250 Series
Ethernet and Circuit Emulation Service Demarcation Solution
Telco Systems’ T-Marc™ 250 is a family of cost-effective, fully-managed carrier Ethernet demarcation devices that provide service termination and demarcation over service providers’ packet-based networks. As a multi-port customer-located intelligent demarcation device, the T-Marc delivers managed converged services (voice, video and data) over virtual Ethernet in a metro Ethernet network.
Advanced Layer 2 Networking using Telco Systems’ AccessEthernet™ allows total flexibility in deployment and delivery of Ethernet services.
Physical and logical channel networking capabilities provide bandwidth profiles, advanced traffic classes, and complete control over how subscriber traffic is transported and managed across a service provider’s network.
Circuit Emulation Services over Packet
The T-Marc-254 utilizes AccessTDM™ to deliver legacy TDM over Ethernet enabling service providers to extendtheir reach and addressable customer base to include both voice and data without sacrificing revenues from existing TDM services.
Based on Circuit Emulation Services over Packet (CESoP) standards for T-Line (T1/E1) services, the T-Marc protects users legacy equipment investments - PBX’s, routers with T1/E1 interfaces - while cost effectively enabling Ethernet service providers the ability to offer revenue generating services over dedicated, managed next generation packet networks.
Advanced Networking Features
The T-Marc offers a rich management toolset for multi-vendor interoperability in element, network and service management to reduce operational expenses (OPEX) and scale management to large access networks.
By augmenting existing IP/SNMP-based management frameworks with IEEE/ITU-T OAM protocols and MEF frameworks, the T-Marc family provides proactive health and status updates on network topology and application behavior. The T-Marc supports standards-based management to enable service provers to use any off-the-shelf management system to manage a T-Marc device as an independent network element with its own IP address.
Telco Systems’ BiNOSCenter management system provides both standards-based and extended standards-based management. To reduce operational expenses and scale management to large access networks, existing standards-based SNMP management is coupled with a secure IP-based proxy management solution to provide proactive health and status information on individual links and
Enhanced troubleshooting tools include optical power monitoring, quality of equipment monitoring, and quality of line monitoring to enable fast fault identification that minimizes the need for expensive truck rolls.
