SPB-M for critical infrastructure?why not?
« on: November 08, 2017, 08:11:09 AM »
Hi

Any one know about case study for SPB-M in critical infrastructure?

I taking a bout electric and oil and gas kind of deployment.
The trend is to move from SONT/SDH to MPLS-TP or carrier Ethernet
I donít see why SPB could not be a player in that segment ?


Any thoughts about that?

I would talk with your sales rep to see which industrial complexes have embraced it to that end.
I know several large health systems have done so, and while the data might be different, the security + transport needs are similar.

What's the definition of critical? The largest hospital group in Norway uses VSP4450/8200/8400/9000 to carry all it's traffic. If there's a problem with the network, people may actually die - which fits my definition of critical infrastructure. Add legal requirements to encrypt traffic crossing public grounds, you have a pretty compelling argument for using the VOSS platform and the VSP9000. Oslo University Hospital consists of four major hospitals plus a fair number of smaller installations.

Hi ōyvind

Yes Hospitals can be part of that....but most Hospitals networks are not based on SDH WAN or need 50ms link recovery ...
Itís mostly Transport and power utilities companies that have those needs
The question is there technical reason not to use SPB-M ?
Can SPBM replace SDH/SONET WAN?
