Tellabs 10 Gigabit Ethernet 226 (GbE226) - Limited Availability
Tellabs continues to invest R&D into the Tellabs 1000 Multi-Service Access Platform (MSAP). The Tellabs™ 10 Gigabit Ethernet 226 (GbE226) helps our long-standing customers maximize the Tellabs 1000 MSAP systems, and service capacity, while minimizing fiber uplink requirements. The 10G GbE226 marks yet another significant R&D deliverable from Tellabs that can eliminate the ever-growing bandwidth bottlenecks in today’s access networks. It installs into new and existing systems with no cabinet augmentations required. You can continue to use any Tellabs 1000 MSAP transport interface and it can be managed using Tellabs Panorama Element Management Systems (EMS).

Included Highlights

Standards-Based Ethernet

Standards-based Ethernet is support with VLAN tagging per IEEE 802.1q, prioritization per IEEE 802.1p and Transparent LAN Services (TLS) when used with ES10/100 plug-in card. Jumbo Ethernet frames supported up to 1526 bytes Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU). And, Service Level Agreements (SLA) capable with Committed Information Rate (CIR) and Committed Burst Size (CBS).

Timing Options

The GbE226 card provides hardware support for Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) for network sourced timing and hardware support for IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) timing – both targeted for future feature package release.

High Bandwidth

With the two 10Gbps interfaces on the GbE226, service providers can support high bandwidth applications from their existing access network. Whether from central offices, or remote cabinets, this 10G capacity can help service providers grow their network cost effectively.

High Availability

Redundancy is supported on the GbE226 card with the implementation of Link Aggregation (IEEE 802.3ad LAG) at both card level and per port level across Tellabs 1000 MSAP systems.

Expand Existing Systems

With the addition of the GbE226, service providers can maximize bandwidth for premium services for both residential and business customers. Simply add the GbE226, to new or existing Tellabs 1000 MSAP systems, installed in remote cabinets that are already operationalized and managed by Tellabs Panorama EMS.
