Variety of fiber-based options
The Tellabs 1000 MSAP product line offers a variety of optical plug-in cards, all of which can be used on the same system at the same time. Capacities and technologies can be applied to fit the network operators’ applications.
The Optical Carrier Level 3 concatenated Transceiver (OC-3c-XCVR) plug-in card supports multiple user-provisionable functions. It serves as a 155 Mbps ATM uplink to an ATM network, a point-to-point transport between Tellabs 1000 MSAP terminals and an ATM service drop or a termination and conversion device for TDM-over-ATM (ToA) traffic. As an uplink to an ATM data network, this card interfaces to any UNI 3.1- and UNI 4.0-compliant ATM switch or router. When provisioned as an uplink, the system supports up to seven OC-3c-XCVR cards per terminal. As an interterminal transport, the OC-3c-XCVR plug-in card provides termination for fiber-optic transport spans between Tellabs 1000 MSAP terminals. The card carries all traffic (ATM, TDM and Ethernet) between the terminals. There is no need for multiple spans to support different technologies.
The Optical Carrier Level 3 Transceiver (OC-3-XCVR) plug-in card optimizes bandwidth efficiency for interterminal transport of Tellabs 1000 MSAP traffic carried over a SONET ring. This card supports STS-1 channelized OC-3 traffic or STS-3c concatenated OC-3 traffic, between Tellabs 1000 MSAP terminals over a SONET ring. The OC-3-XCVR card minimizes excess bandwidth usage on SONET rings while providing GR-253-CORE-compliant SONET 1+1 APS functionality and interoperability with SONET ADMs. The Tellabs 1000 supports point-to-point, 5-wide star, and drop-and-insert topologies over a SONET ring using the OC-3-XCVR card to provide interterminal transport.
The Optical Carrier Level 12 (concatenated) Transceiver (OC-12c-XCVR) plug-in card provides two functions for the Tellabs 1000 MSAP. It serves as a 622.08 Mbps uplink to an ATM network, and provides a point-to-point SONET optical transport between Tellabs 1000 MSAP terminals. As an uplink to an ATM data network, the OC-12c-XCVR card interfaces to any UNI 3.0-, UNI 3.1-, or UNI 4.0- compliant ATM switch or router. As an interterminal transport, this card provides termination for fiber-optic transport spans between the Tellabs 1000 MSAP terminals. The card carries all traffic (ATM,TDM and Ethernet) between the terminals. The OC-12c-XCVR plug-in card is equipped with SC/PC-type optical connectors for terminating fiber-optic cables. The OC-12c-XCVR card installs into any general-purpose slot in the CBA.
