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.
10 Gigabit Ethernet
The Tellabs 10 Gigabit Ethernet 226 (GbE226) plug-in card allows our service provider customers to maximize their embedded base of Tellabs 1000 MSAP systems and accelerate their service delivery capacity, while minimizing fiber uplink impact. The Tellabs GbE226 card provides Four (4) 1Gbps Ethernet ports small form-factor pluggable (SFP) and Two (2) 1Gbps/10Gbps Ethernet ports enhanced small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) – thus a total of six (6) Ethernet ports with flexible uplink and tributary connectivity options for existing Tellabs 1000 MSAP systems. Thus, the GbE226 card helps enhances the Tellabs 1000 MSAP shelf capacity, optimize fiber plant utilization, saves service providers’ money by aggregating gigabit Ethernet ports, and maximizes revenue from DSL, Ethernet plus other business services.
The GbE222 card enables the Tellabs 1000 MSAP system to evolve with networks moving from circuit switched/connection-based to packet/connectionless-based. The Gigabit Ethernet 222 (GbE222) transceiver supports packet-based Ethernet services in a Tellabs 1000 CBA in these modes for Ethernet uplink to the service provider’s network and interterminal transport. The GbE222 interfaces with Ethernet-based core networks. It carries video-on-demand (VOD) and high-speed Internet (HSI). It encapsulates the Tellabs 1000 MSAP upstream TDM and ATM traffic into Ethernet frames when functioning as a transport interface. The GbE222 card accepts multiple SFP module types. The GbE222 uplink supports IGMP snooping in an IPTV application. The GbE uplink can perform interworking from ATM to Ethernet across a Tellabs 1000 MSAP system.
The ES10/100 plug-in card enables Ethernet service to be delivered directly to subscribers from any shelf. Each ES10/100 provides up to 100 Mbps of bidirectional traffic per port. Each card provides two independent ports. The GbE uplink is used to support cross-connects (Ethernet-to-Ethernet connections, or EECs) with this card. If the GbE uplink is in a different shelf from the ES10/100, subscriber traffic can be transported to the GbE uplink via OC-3c, OC-12c or GbE transport links. The card can be placed in any general-purpose slot of any broadband-capable Tellabs 1000 CBA. The ES10/100 supports both fiber-based and copper-based small form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules, which can be mixed or matched on the card.
