Redundancy is supported with the Tellabs Ethernet plug-in cards and the implementation of Link Aggregation (IEEE 802.3ad LAG) at both card level and per port level. This provides resilient connectivity across central office, remote cabinets and customer premises.
With the Tellabs ES 10/100 used in conjunction with the Tellabs GbE226 (10G+1G) and the Tellabs GbE222 (1G) plug-in cards, in transport and network uplink configurations, the Tellabs 1000 MSAP can deliver end-to-end Ethernet interfaces. Even better, these Ethernet-based interfaces can be deployed without abandoning revenue-generating legacy Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) and Special Services that are delivered simultaneously from within the same Tellabs 1000 MSAP shelf.
Ethernet, ATM and TDM Interworking
Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), TDM and Ethernet interworking is achieved with ATM-to-Ethernet Connection (AEC), Ethernet-to-Ethernet Connection (EEC) and Ethernet-to-ATM Connection (EAC) supported across the Tellabs 1000 MSAP system.
