EdgeLink OTM1000 is the first optical SONET edge solution that allows service providers to deliver traditional T1, T3, and Ethernet services over an OC-3 fiber feed via virtual concatenation (VC), without the wasted bandwidth found with traditional Packet over SONET (PoS) offerings

EdgeLink OTM1000 efficiently delivers voice and data over the last-mile. It optically transports an OC-3 to locations where copper cannot reach, where voice and data service delivery needs exceed T1 or T3.EdgeLink OTM1000 is ideal for connection to fiber spurs off a carrier’s SONET backbone ADM or in point-to point applications for extension of T1, T3, and Ethernet from a CO or POP

Key differentiators for EdgeLink OTM1000 in the SONET terminal multiplexer market are its flexibility and efficiency. It has the ability to VC two STS-1 payloads into a single payload that can carry a 100BaseT Ethernet (fast Ethernet) connection with a DS3 available for delivery or to be used with an M13 for T1 fan out. Other configurations include: 3 DS3s, 2 DS3s and 8 10BaseT Ethernet ports, 1 DS3 and 1 Fast Ethernet port,or 2 DS3s and 12 DS1s. The VC scheme uses maximum efficiency as opposed to wasting bandwidth by mapping a 100BaseT Ethernet connection to a single OC-3 155 Mbps, which is typical with packet over SONET (PoS).

Most efficient delivery of voice and Ethernet services over SONET networks

  • Efficient delivery of Ethernet using existing SONET networks
  • Highest, most flexible drop port options available in its class (T3, T1, Ethernet)
  • Extended temperature operation for uncontrolled environments
  • GR-253 compliant OC-3 transport
  • Compact – only 3 RU high by 7” wide - 3 units can fit side-by-side in a 23" rack
  • NEBS Level 3 certified
  • 1:1 circuitry protection, 1+1 optical redundancy
  • Hot insertion and card swap out
  • Interoperability and DCC compatibility to higher-order Add/Drop Multiplexers
  • CPE packaging
