Packet-Optical Platform

The 6200 de-risks capital investment by performing aggregation in many network technologies, matching expenditure to revenue, regardless of how a new service is delivered. It's a highly dense edge aggregation transport device that supports a mix of PDH, TDM, and Carrier Ethernet, all in one compact platform.


No. 1

Provides a highly scalable edge platform that supports up to 10G/10GE line rates with 60G low-order non-blocking TDM and 64G wire-speed Ethernet switching fabrics

No. 2

Supports a wide variety of services from E1/DS1 to 10G/10GE

No. 3

Routes each port on each card flexibly and independently over SONET/SDH or Ethernet

No. 4

Supports comprehensive packet transport capabilities including ITU G.8032, Ethernet OAM, SyncE, and 1588v2

No. 5

Leverages AC and DC powering options in a compact 2RU footprint for a perfect fit into customer premises locations

No. 6

Supports both redundant and non-redundant configurations
