Multiservice Optical Platform

The 6110 Multiservice Optical Platform is a compact, cost-effective multiservice access product optimized for deployment in customer sites and in collector networks where lower service capacity is required.


No. 1

Supports traditional PDH and TDM as well as Ethernet traffic in a compact 1RU platform, enabling future-proofing of SONET/SDH networks and accommodation of Ethernet services

No. 2

Offers a full service mix comprising both Layer 1 (SONET/SDH) and Layer 2 (Ethernet) services, and can interconnect using line rates from 155 Mb/s to 2.5 Gb/s

No. 3

Supports low-order DS1/E1 grooming for most efficient transport of DS1/E1 services

No. 4

Provides intelligent packet aggregation and prioritization of today’s business-critical applications through QoS, priority queuing, Q-in-Q VLAN stacking/tagging and port rate limiting

No. 5

Provides flexible networking protection options, including efficient ITU G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection switching for optimal bandwidth utilization with <50ms protection of Ethernet services

No. 6

Reduces operating expenses with low power consumption, support for both AC and DC (24V and 48V) power configurations, extended temperature operation and extensive fault monitoring and loop-back capabilities
