PL-2000 – 20G OTN ADM Muxponder

The PL-2000 20G OTN ADM muxponder provides an efficient and flexible aggregation layer and cross-connect of multi-protocol/multi-rate sub-10G services into dual 10G uplink trunks.

The 10G OTU2 uplink can simultaneously aggregate SDH/SONET, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and native video services, providing a perfect access platform for multiple clients’ needs and allows merger of legacy and new services transparently and efficiently.

Flexible Design

Each of the client ports can support a wide range of rates and protocols such as FE, GbE, 1/2/4G FC/FICON, STM1/OC-3, STM4/OC-12, STM16/OC-48 and video signals of DVB-ASI, SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G SDI. Each client port can be mapped to any of the two uplink ports.

The PL-2000 supports ODU1 OTN cross-connect and can be used in ring and point-to-point applications. It also supports facility protection per each service.

Powerful Feature Set

In a point-to-point network, the PL-2000 can aggregate up to 16 multi-rate/multi-protocol services into a single 10G OTU2 uplink pipe with a second 10G OTU2 uplink pipe providing full uplink and fibre protection.

In a ring application, the device can aggregate up to 16 multi-rate/multi-protocol services into two dual 10G OTU2 while bypassing the pass-through services between the two uplink pipes.

The PL-2000 supports several FEC codes suitable for extremely long haul amplified DWDM networks, eliminating the need for costly regenerator sites for Sub-10G clients.

The solution forms a common transport layer for all sub-10G client protocols regardless of the service type with high spectral efficiency.
