Enabling Service Convergence over Packet Transport

Axerra Networks, "The Pseudo-Wire Company®," is the leading provider of circuit emulation and service emulation solutions over packet access networks for mobile backhaul and business service delivery. Axerra's Pseudowire solutions enable mobile operators, cable MSOs, competitive access providers, and incumbent carriers to extend IP and legacy voice and data services in native format over Ethernet, IP, and MPLS networks.
