Cox OKs Axerra’s Commercial Tech


Axerra Networks said Cox Business Services has approved the company’s "Pseudo-Wire" technology for Cox Communications Inc.’s commercial-services division.

Axerra provides circuit and service emulation solutions over packet access networks.

Jay Rolls, vice president of telephone and data engineering at Cox, said the technology will allow the MSO to deliver traditional T1 business services over both Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification-compliant and vendor-specific cable modems and cable-modem terminations systems.

The Axerra AXN Pseudo-Wire Gateways and Access Devices allow Cox to offer T1 services, Ethernet private pine, native frame relay, ATM and IP services.
