Of special interest is the Tellabs 1000 MSAP ES 10/100 plug-in card, which can deliver Ethernet services to business premises, multi-dwelling premises and cell site base stations. ES 10/100 can be located in any of the multipurpose shelf slots. Used in conjunction with the GbE plug-in card in transport and/or network uplink configurations, the Tellabs 1000 MSAP can deliver end-to-end Ethernet interfaces. Both optical and copper-based SFPs can be utilized with the ES 10/100 plug-in card.
Continued support for legacy services
Deploying Ethernet-centric services from a service provider’s embedded base of access equipment affords the opportunity to capture additional revenues from Ethernet business services and the wireless traffic backhaul from subtended cell tower base stations. However, do not lose sight that the Tellabs 1000 MSAP accomplishes this feat as it simultaneously supports legacy services, like ISDN, FAX, DID/DOD, 2-Wire/4-Wire, Pay Phone, E&M, TO and EBS. Thus, the Tellabs 1000 MSAP is unique in that it can support these next-generation IP/Ethernet initiatives without cannibalizing traditional TDM revenue sources.
Transport and uplink options
The Tellabs 1000 MSAP supports a wide variety of inter-terminal transport and network uplinks, including copper, optical, Ethernet, SONET/SDH, ATM, IMA transports. In particular, Tellabs 1000 MSAP GbE is a high-bandwidth, cost-effective Gigabit Ethernet uplink, and Ethernet inter-terminal transport. The GbE supports voice transport, Ethernet traffic aggregation for High-Speed Internet (HSI), IP Television (IPTV), business premises applications and cell site base station traffic backhaul. Furthermore, it provides point-to-point inter-terminal transport between the central office (CO) based Local Exchange Terminal (LET) and the Remote Subscriber Terminal (RST) located in the non-environmentally controlled cabinet or hut. The GbE provides two full-duplexed Gigabit Ethernet ports equipped with optional configurations of SX, LX, ZX and single-fiber bidirectional small form-factor pluggable (SFP) optics.
Integrated network management
The Tellabs 1000 can be provisioned, tested and monitored using a UI and/or from a menu-driven software provisioning system accessible from any LET, RST or remote Telnet session. To further simplify provisioning and monitoring, the Tellabs Panorama Manager can be used. The Tellabs Panorama Manager is available in both Solaris and Windows operating environments, and offers a full suite of management capabilities like user management, configuration management, performance management and security management. It also supports remote upgrades, service fulfillment, service assurance, remote back-up, remote capacity and inventory reporting, as well as a variety of additional functions.
