DATASHEET
8611 Smart Router
Fully Redundant, Scalable Network Element for LTE and
IP/Ethernet RAN Access Aggregation
The Coriant® 8611 Smart Router is a compact and highly modular next generation
access element. The device offers high data delivery capacity in LTE, 4G, and 3G
networks. With a switching capacity of up to 7.5 Gbps and 5.5 Gbps with Simple IMIX
packet size distribution, the 8611 Smart Router is cost-efficient, powerful, and easy to
scale. Offering 7 slots for physical interface modules, the 8611 Smart Router is ideal for
service providers’ large cell sites or small hub aggregation sites in areas where there
is demand for high capacity aggregation. The interface and power feed modularity
improves various site configurations and also optimizes cost and maintenance of
inventory management. The fully redundant Switching and Control Module (SCM)
enables unsurpassed carrier-class reliability.
OFFERING COMPACT FORM FACTOR WITH A
FLEXIBLE ARCHITECTURE
The 8611 Smart Router has a packet-based forwarding architecture with Quality of
Service (QoS) awareness enabling network optimization for voice and data services
in LTE and 3G networks. The advanced QoS features provide the differentiation of
premium and best effort data services for real-time voice and video services. The
environmentally hardened 8611 Smart Router has a compact 2RU form factor with hot
swappable power units and fan modules that are simple to replace. The modular router
architecture can be easily changed by the user and includes Gigabit Ethernet, Fast
Ethernet, 10G Ethernet, and E1/T1 Line Modules.
SUPPORTING ROBUST SYNCHRONIZATION
The 8611 Smart Router supports a high quality Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator
(OCXO), which provides excellent temperature stability for IEEE 1588v2 and adaptive
timing recovery. The OCXO also offers a highly stable node clock holdover. In addition
to adaptive timing and IEEE 1588v2 clock recovery mechanisms, node timing can be
obtained from a BITS or GPS source, any PDH, SONET/SDH interface, or any of the
synchronous Ethernet interfaces.
ENABLING QUALITY OF SERVICE TESTING IN
PACKET NETWORKS
With support for an extensive set of OAM capabilities, the 8611 Smart Router ensures
network availability and maintains QoS requirements for voice, video, and data services.
The 8611 Smart Router supports LSP Ping, LSP Traceroute, and Ethernet OAM functions
from IEEE 802.1ag and Y.1731. In addition, the 8611 Smart Router along with the Coriant®
Smart Router product portfolio and Coriant® 8000 Intelligent Network Manager (INM)
support a unique Packet Loop Test tool that enables the testing of QoS parameters
including delay, jitter, throughput, and connectivity.

The Coriant® Smart Router Series
The Smart Router series offers versatile and scalable solutions for mobile backhaul from small aggregation sites to controller
and gateway sites. In addition, Smart Routers serve fixed and mobile convergence and cloud computing networking needs.
These solutions are designed to meet the ever-growing requirements of data hungry mobile and enterprise users. All of the
Smart Routers are LTE-ready and provide an extensive Ethernet and IP/MPLS feature set. Simultaneous support for multiservice
applications in access and aggregation networks protects earlier network investments. The Smart Router product family is
supported by the 8000 INM, which is an easy to use end-to-end network management solution. The 8000 INM minimizes
operational and maintenance costs and scales up to tens of thousands of network elements.
IMPLEMENTING AN OPEN, PROGRAMMABLE, AUTOMATED SDN SOLUTION
The 8611 Smart Router is fully supported by the Coriant Transcend™ SDN Packet Controller. The Packet Controller is an integral component
of the overall Coriant Transcend™ SDN Solution suite, a modular SDN software suite that combines the benefits of open, programmable,
and automated multi-layer (Layer 0-3) SDN architecture and a proven portfolio of IP/MPLS edge routing and packet optical transport
solutions to enable dynamic, end-to-end network control.
