10G Optical Transport Network (OTN10GF) line card supports high levels of efficiency for multi-protocol transport – SFP and XFP-based
The Optical Transport Network (OTN10GF) line card combines multiprotocol support with high density efficient muxing for today’s high bandwidth and service consolidation requirements.
The OTN10GF line card offers:
- Support for SONET OC3/OC12/OC48, SDH STM 1/4/16, and OTU1
- Support for Gigabit Ethernet, 1/2/4G Fiber Channel
- Add, drop, mux, pass-through on a single line card via a built-in switching capability
- Dual 10G line-side support for sub-50ms protection and internal pass-through
- FEC-enabled 100-km line-side distances
Built-In Add/Drop Functions
By integrating muxing and add/drop features, the OTN10GF line card eliminates the need for an external mux or add/drop device. In addition, by supporting both data and TDM rates, the OTN10GF card allows for collapsing legacy systems into a single transport system, thereby lowering management and maintenance costs when compared to a multiple device system.
Flexibile SFP and XFP Based Interfaces
The OTN10GF line card features SFP-based client interfaces and enables copper or fiber connections, thereby supporting a wide variety of distances and extending the reach to the customer demarcation. The OTN10GF line-side is XFP-based lineside optics with integrated FEC.
- Linear Add/Drop
OTN10GF is managed as an integral part of the GigaMux 3200 system using the Sorrento Networks Management System. Customers can manage remote network elements without an extensive IP infrastructure, provision new services, monitor, troubleshoot and isolate problems quickly and effectively. The Sorrento Networks Management System supports remote download of software, reducing maintenance costs to simplify network upgrades. CLI, SNMP and GigaView 3200 management interfaces are also available.
