The Case XLR 5000 is a carrier class Multi-Service Access Platform that bridges the gap between legacy networks and the next generation communications networks providing support for both Fibre and Copper services.

XLR 5000 – EFM-based Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP)
Based on Ethernet.The XLR 5000 is an Ethernet based Multi-Service Platform which allows cost effective migrationn from copper to fibre optic network infrastructures
Support for Copper and Fibre in a single platformThe XLR 5000 provides support for both copper and fibre in a single converged platform, with high speed ‘backhaul’ capabilities
DSLAM and Ethernet Demarcation DeviceThe XLR 5000 works with the Case Communications XLR 550 / 560 CPE series of 2-Base TL EFM DSL products as a Mini-DLSAM and can also work as a Smart Ethernet Demarcation Device, allowing carriers to provide a separation point between their WAN and their customers LAN, and provide monitoring of a customers network status.
ManagementThe Case Communications XLR 5000 supports IEEE 802.3ah and vendor specific standards based extended management features.The XLR 5000 Management Interface includes comprehensive command Line Interface (CLI), a user-friendly GUI-based Web Browser Interface, SNMP and Telnet.
