ADSL2+ 6+6B Plug-in Card
The ADSL2+ 6+6B is a high-performance line card that supports integrated voice, data and video applications in your Tellabs(TM) 1000 Multi-service Access Platform (MSAP). The low-power card delivers broadband service over a single copper pair, or via two adjacent bonded copper pairs. ITU G.998.1, an industry standard technology, doubles downstream service rates and increases upstream service, making it ideal for small and home business applications. This improved delivery enhances revenue from your embedded base of Tellabs 1000 MSAP equipment. The card provides six ports of ADSL2+ technology and standard analog lifeline POTS simultaneously on each port (6+6). Using the Tellabs Panorama EMS you can activate your customers with no truck-rolls to remote cabinets or a central office.

Features and Benefits

  • Integrated DSL+POTS (6+6) interface enables you to cost-effectively support a 100% take-rate of IPTV and High Speed Internet (HSI) services on day one.
  • The ADSL2+ 6+6B card provides bit rates up to 24 Mbps downstream and over 1.4 Mbps upstream on a single copper pair.
  • By bonding two adjacent ports, you can achieve 48 Mbps downstream and over 2.8 Mbps upstream.
  • Higher bit rates help you keep up with the growing broadband demands of IPTV, VoD, HSI and Over-the-Top services.
