VDSL2 6+6 Plug-in Card
Providing high-speed, integrated broadband applications over yesterday’s copper is challenging. With the Tellabs VDSL2 6+6 high-performance line card, you can deliver integrated voice, data and video applications from the Tellabs 1000 MSAP. The card supports broadband service over a single copper pair or via two adjacent bonded copper pairs. This enables operators to provide higher speed broadband services across existing copper Customer Service Areas (CSAs). Operating in both IP/Ethernet packet-based and ATM environments, the VDSL2 supports Packet Transfer Mode (PTM) traffic as well as ATM mode over copper.

Features and Benefits

  • 17a profile for 5-band (17 Mhz) support, maximizing bandwidth within short CSAs
  • Single Ended Line Test (SELT) proactively qualifies line distance, gauge and noise
  • Low-power mode transition, at port level, saves power during port inactivity
  • Power shut-off feature, at port level, saves power during battery backup conditions
  • Supports PTM and ATM traffic options per port for packet or ATM transmission
