Aggregation Switch HA-821 Affordable and Seamless 10G Carrier Grade Ethernet Aggregation for Ethernet WAN and Wireless Mobile Backhaul: Ethernet WAN and Wireless Mobile Backhaul Support, Versatile Multiservice Delivery, Service Level Monitoring and Provisioning through SLA portal


Affordable and Seamless Support for Ethernet WAN and Wireless Mobile Backhaul

The HFR HA-821 is a cost effective, multiservice, carrier-grade, rack mountable 1G aggregation device designed to deliver Carrier Ethernet services in support of enterprise business and wireless mobile backhaul service applications. The HA-821 can be installed as a 1G aggregation node in a Carrier network to address space and power challenges, deliver high performance and scalable services, and reduce operational costs.

HA-821 is a member of the cost-effective and highly scalable Mobile Access


  • Standards-based Multiservice Delivery

    Designed to support Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) specifications, HA-805 delivers Ethernet Private Line, Ethernet Virtual Private Line, Ethernet LAN, Ethernet Access and Ethernet Tree based connectivity in linear and ring topologies for high capacity business and mobile backhaul 4G services.

    Service Level Provisioning, Monitoring and Management

    Graphical user interfaces based on SNMP are available to provide the full range of management support - from an individual node to an end-to-end network and service centric view. With dedicated hardware for traffic performance monitoring, the HA-805 delivers on today’s requirement for hardware based Y.1731 latency, delay variation and frame loss ratio measurements. Tiered Ethernet services as well as wireless backhaul service level performance may also be monitored through the web-based SLA portal.
