Ericsson Smart Ethernet Aggregation (SEA) Switches

























The SEA family of multi-access aggregation platforms provides a seamless migration path from TDM circuit to the next-generation packet-switched networks. Built on the ultra-scalable foundation of Ethernet, the SEA platforms have been engineered for a long service life.


Ericsson SEA 20 Switch
Multi-Access Aggregation Platform



SEA family of multi-access aggregation platforms
Globally, carrier networks are under tremendous pressure to expand the bandwidth capacity at the access and aggregation networks. The advancements of mobile and enterprise devices, offering high-definition video and robust real-time applications, have exposed the architectural limitations of legacy networks based on the SONET/SDH system.

Even with the recent retrofits that add Ethernet capabilities, many of these networks are running at near maximum capacity. Well-proven in core and edge networks, Carrier Ethernet is the natural and the best replacement technology.

However, access networks require a different class of architecture; a new class of Carrier Ethernet architecture that serves dual roles - to provide a seamless migration path from TDM circuit to Ethernet, and to lay an ultra-scalable foundation for next generation networks.

SEA Family of Multi-Access Aggregation platforms are a new class of Carrier Ethernet platforms, purpose-built to handle the rapid proliferation of 3G mobile devices.

SEA carries the same heritage that has made Ericsson IP products successful in transforming circuit-based networks to all-IP. With the height of only 1.5 RU and a ruggedized  architecture, the compact form factor makes this platform ideal for extreme temperature operations in access networks, such as cell sites backhaul aggregation and building basements for enterprise managed services.

Ericssson SEA 20 for the converged access

and Ethernet ring aggregation Both the SEA 10 and SEA 20 support industry-largest
switching capacities in the Ethernet access device category. The SEA 10 supports 36 Gbps switching capacity and the SEA 20 can handle a massive 120 Gbps.

The large switching capacity ensures that SEA platforms have enough headroom to handle new innovative IP services and it also protects carrier’s investments by extending the SEA service life. The standard SEA 20 comes with 20-Gigabit Ethernet ports for high-density Gigabit Ethernet aggregation.

Additionally, two standard 10-Gigabit ports can be configured in a redundant ring fashion. With the G.8032 resilient ring feature and 10-Gbps ring backhaul, SEA sets new price-performance standards for access networks. G.8032 adds 50-ms of protection and enables SONET/SDH-like restorations of E-LINE and E-LAN services.

When combined with the TDM expansion module and Circuit Emulation Service, G.8032 enables SEA to backhaul PBX voice and other mission critical services with ample backhaul capacity that effectively reduces network upgrade churns and lowers operational costs.


Ericsson Circuit Emulation Service
SEA supports the most advanced and industry-leading implementation of Circuit Emulation Services (CES) based on the latest CESoPSN and SAToP standards. SEA’s CES goes beyond the simple transport of venerable TDM and ATM IMA services over sophisticated Ethernet pseudo wires. To complement the TDM timing,

Ericsson integrates the 1588v2 and SyncE for flexible timing options via both the link and protocol levels. Carriers can also enforce Service Level Agreements (SLAs) through the Y.1731. The Y.1731 provides embedded performance assurance by monitoring frame loss, jitter and latency, and by allowing a fine-grain, accurate monitoring of SLAs.

Standards-based OAM and Network Management Systems
Both SEA 10 and 20 are tightly integrated into the ServiceON Element Manager (EM) and NetOp Element Management System (EMS). Both management systems provide intuitive GUI interfaces for fast element configurations and full FCAPS monitoring.

Additional management modules include ServiceON ESA and NetOp Network Service Manager (NSM), which give network managers the power to easily provision end-to-end VPN services, automate provisioning work flows and monitor end-to-end circuit with point and click simplicity.

 ServiceON EM/ ESA is a well-proven management system for the legacy transport-oriented networks consisting of MiniLink microware radios, OMS platforms for
PDH/ SDH transport and SEA. For the Ethernet packet switched networks consisting of
SmartEdge, SM and SEA, Ericsson offers NetOp. NetOp EMS/NSM is a powerful management system purpose-built for Ethernet and IP network management.

With NetOp NSM, a network operator can easily provision any type of IP circuits including, L2 VLL/ VPLS, L3 BGP VPN and even site-to-site IPSec VPN with point and click  simplicity.

Both the SEA 10 and SEA 20 support industry-largest switching capacities in its class. The SEA 10 supports 36 Gbps switching capacity and the SEA 20 can handle a massive 120 Gbps. The large switching capacity ensures that the SEA platforms have enough future headroom to handle new innovative IP services and it also protects carrier’s investments by extending the SEA service life.

The standard SEA 10 comes with standard 16 Gigabit Ethernet ports and two multi-access expansion slots. In a cell site application, SEA 10 can be configured to aggregate up to 16 T1/E1 ports from base stations and several Ethernet uplinks from a variety of devices; including radio controllers, base station controllers, appliances and servers. Unlike cell-site routers, SEA 10 offers the simplicity of a full-function VLAN switch to provide efficient intra-cell site communication between devices.

SEA 10 supports dual-home uplinks for redundant point-to-point and redundant ring connectivity via the G.8032 resilient ring feature. When combined with the TDM expansion module and Circuit Emulation Service, G.8032 enables SEA 10 to backhaul PBX voice and other mission critical services with ample backhaul capacity that effectively reduces
