Tellabs 180C Optical Network Terminal (ONT) currently in Limited Availability
The Tellabs 180C Optical Network Terminal (ONT) provides high-density gigabit Ethernet connectivity that is a scalable and smart choice for the new enterprise LAN. This evolutionary ONT, which supports the modern office and extended campus environments, can be integrated inside office furniture, secured to a wall, mounted underneath a desk or just be free-standing on a desktop. All 3rd millennium enterprise services and applications can be delivered, including voice, video, high-speed data, wireless, security, access controls and building automation in a small form-factor.

Included Highlights

Powering Options

Tellabs 180C ONT powering options include both local AC and remote DC. For local AC power, power adaptors are used to transform 120 AC power from the wall plug to 48 DC power delivered to the ONT. For the remote DC power option, a centrally located bulk rectifier can be used, and 48 VDC power is delivered over CATx cables or new hybrid fiber/copper cables. Remote powering option uses a centrally located bulk power plant, emergency power and bulk battery back-up. For local powering option, the Tellabs PSU BBU unit with monitoring can be used as a local battery back-up. The ONT180C has both Phoenix and Molex connectors for power.

Power over Ethernet (PoE)

For Power over Ethernet (PoE), IEEE 802.3af PoE, PoE+ IEEE 802.3at (Class-4 negotiations) and IEEE 802.3bt (4PPOE) can be selected on per port basis. The maximum PoE power when local powered is 120 watts and the maximum PoE power when remote powered is 100 watts.

Mounting Choices

Tellabs 180C ONT is designed and tested for a wide variety of mounting scenarios. The 180C ONT can be integrated inside office furniture, secured to a wall or underneath a desk or just be free-standing on a desk top.

Centralized Management

All features and functionality can be defined in software and dynamically allocated, based on real-time needs. Being controlled by the Tellabs™ Panorama™ PON Manager helps speed installations and daily operations. Centrally controlled by the Tellabs Panorama PON Manager, the Tellabs 180C ONT supports auto-discovery mechanisms, can be quickly provisioned using global templates and wizards, and offers smart troubleshooting tools, all of which allow for speedy moves, adds and changes for everyday operations.
