TELCO LAUNCHES EDGELINK OTM1000 OC-3 TERMINAL MULTIPLEXER.

Telco Systems, a provider of network edge technology and IP switching platforms, has launched EdgeLink OTM1000, OC-3 Terminal Multiplexer.

EdgeLink OTM1000 is the first optical SONET edge solution that allows service providers to deliver traditional T1, T3 and Ethernet services over a SONET OC-3 fiber feed via virtual concatenation.

EdgeLink OTM1000 addresses the need for compact and efficient last-mile delivery of voice, data, and Ethernet services. It optically transports an OC-3 to locations where copper cannot reach or 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," said Dave Boulos, vice president, product management, Telco Systems. "It has the ability to virtually concatenate (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, 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)."

"EdgeLink OTM1000 has a lot to offer service providers," said Boulos. "Beyond its flexibility, service providers now have a platform to deliver services while saving 75% on equipment costs and its compact footprint is 60% smaller then traditional SONET transport devices. EdgeLink OTM1000 is currently available."
