Expand Existing Systems
The GbE226 10G uplink has a total of six Ethernet ports. There are two ports with small form-factor pluggable plus (SFP+) that can be configured as either 10Gbps or 10/100/1000 Ethernet, and there are four ports with small form-factor pluggable (SFP) that support 10/100/1000 Ethernet. Having a total of six Ethernet ports provides flexible connectivity options to expand the capacity of existing Tellabs 1000 MSAP systems. This allows service providers to maximize bandwidth for premium services connecting residential and business customers by simply adding the GbE226 into Tellabs 1000 MSAPs installed in remote offices, or cabinets, that are already operationalized and managed by Tellabs Panorama EMS.
Optimize Fiber Utilization
With the two 10Gbps interfaces on the GbE226, service providers can support high bandwidth applications from their existing access network across fewer fiber cables. Whether from central offices, remote office or remote cabinets, this 10G capacity can help telecommunications providers grow their network cost effectively by optimizing their outside fiber plant utilization.
