The Tellabs 1000 Multiservice Access Platform (MSAP) is without a doubt the Swiss Army Knife of the broadband access industry. Today, the Tellabs 1000 MSAP continues to benefit from on-going R&D investments resulting in constant innovations and improvements. However, some tools, in its very deep toolbox, may not be as well-known as others.
For example, the Tellabs 1000 MSAP is a very economical 1/0 Digital Cross Connect, and D4 Channel Bank replacement.
In a typical network service provider 1/0 narrowband cross connect configuration, the Tellabs 1000 MSAP can accept DS1s with multiple Special Service DS0s, and groom them into other DS1s mapped to or transported directly to another CO. Economics improve even more when existing Tellabs 1000 systems, which are already operationalized, are used to start eliminating the old manufacturer discontinued 1/0 DCS, and D4 channel bank equipment.
You see, the Tellabs 1000 can aggregate, cross connect and transport all the different DS0s – plus, it can drop local DS0s or pass them through untouched. Best yet, the T1000 is a modern, fully supported access platform, with world-class Panorama element management software, which offers fast GUI-based provisioning, monitoring and alarming.
In fact, the Tellabs 1000 MSAP supports 20 analog special service interfaces from one fiber-fed and Ethernet enabled broadband digital loop carrier system, including:
Among the benefits which contribute to the economic attractiveness of the Tellabs 1000 MSAP 1/0 DCS solutions are:
- Increased T1 utilization
- More efficient DS0 transport (no DS0 appearance at pass through office)
- Reduced energy consumption and space occupied
- Faster provisioning, and proactive alarming, through Tellabs Panorama Manager
- Retirement of old, manufacturer discontinued,1/0 DCS, and D4 channel bank equipment
Case in point, one of our major North American network operator customers was able to collapse five (5) telco racks loaded with 25 channel banks of both D4 and 1/0 DCS systems into one (1) Tellabs 1000 MSAP system, utilizing one (1) telco rack. Basically, 200 circuits (e.g. DDS, E&M, ISDN, UVG, Special Services 2W/4W, FX, DID, ETO, PLAR) in 200 old plug-in cards were reconfigured into just 95 Tellabs 1000 plug-in cards. This new configuration saved the service provider energy, space and money.
