Overture 600 Series


The Overture 600 series, leveraging revolutionary, patented PWE3-plus capabilities, uniquely enables simultaneous transport of native Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) and native Ethernet traffic over copper, delivering 10 times more bandwidth at one-tenth the cost of legacy technologies, allowing immediate rollout of next-generation mobile broadband services.

Feature Benefit
15Mbps per copper pair Enables up to 60Mpbs of Carrier Ethernet or 4 E1s (6Mbps) and 54Mbps of Carrier Ethernet.
PWE-3plus technology
Dynamically assigns bandwidth to each service and addresses the synchronization issues that are prevalent
with emulated T1/E1 services
CLI and web GUI A familiar CLI and Web Manager that requires no client software make this solution easy to use and scalable.
Zero Touch provisioning
Save time and money by streamlining installation and reducing the skill set required of the local field
Traffic management Ensure Quality of Service with advanced traffic shaping, hierarchical queuing, and traffic policing

The Overture 600 series delivers carrier class DS1/E1, and high-speed Ethernet services over the existing copper infrastructure to the cell tower and to the customer premise. The Overture 600 series is a cost effective solution that quickly and economically delivers up high bandwidth services essentially extending the optical service area to the those locations that are only served with copper.



Business Access – The Overture 600 series enables 1Mb to over 100Mb services as connections to offices typically providing Ethernet services over bonded copper and bonded T1 where there is not fiber available.  Typical business services carriers sell are metro Ethernet, T1/E1 private line service, Dedicated Internet Access, IP-VPN, VoIP.

Mobile & DSLAM Backhaul – The Overture 600 series enables 1Mb to over 100Mb services connection to cell towers, typically providing up to 100 Mbps backhaul services carrying both native Ethernet and native TDM with support for network timing synchronization. The product line is ideally suited for enabling high-speed backhaul to Mobile Cell Towers and DSLAM sites that are capital-constrained to be served by fiber.  The combination of 32 pair bonding, EFM repeaters, and the unique ability to natively transport T1/E1 timing ensures carrier grade backhaul at a fraction of the cost of other technologies. 

Multi-Tenant Campus and In-Building – The Overture 600 series enables 1Mb to over 100Mb services for Campus and In-Building applications. The product line enables carriers to benefit by taking advantage of the existing copper plant on campus or up the risers in buildings, p realizing a huge cost savings while enabling high-speed Ethernet services.

Traffic Light/Video Surveillance – The Overture 600 series enables 1 Mb to over 100 Mb services for counties and municipalities who need to increase bandwidth to traffic lights for video surveillance applications where only existing copper plant is available.
