- Demarcation for Carrier Ethernet over bonded copper
- 24 pair bonding and up to 15Mbps per copper pair
- Robust pair qualification and service turn-up tools
The Overture 4000cp delivers up to 15Mbps per copper pair and support up to 24 bonded copper pairs and support Carrier Ethernet speeds from 1 Mbps to over 100Mpbs. Even though pairs are bonded together to make a larger pipe, each pair is treated separately so all pairs do not have to run at the same rate. This allows the fastest aggregate bandwidth possible over the total bonding group.
Rapid Service Delivery
With the 4000cp, a carrier can quickly plan the service offering and optimize the copper pair requirements. To simplify the location of the copper pair, the 4000cp supports tone-generation and open/short technologies. To qualify the loop, the 4000cp includes Overture’s TDRplus, an integrated Time Domain Reflectometer. With this technology, a carrier can measure the distance of the loop and analyze the quality of the loop. 4000cp will automatically configure the modulation on the bonded-pair to obtain the highest data rate. The 4000cp has an embedded GUI that simplifies installation and trouble-shooting. Powerful programmable macros accelerate provisioning and prevent errors. The powerful Service OAM, traffic generation, and packet capture features can be leveraged to verify end-to-end performance, trouble shoot service configurations, and ensure end-customer SLAs. Longer term maintenance is simple with advanced tools to monitor Link layer OAM and provide Connectivity Fault Management (CFM).
Carrier Class Features
The 4000cp is NEBS level 3 certified, temperature-hardened, and has full front access to all of its cables. It is 1RU high and it can be deployed in a central office, a controlled environmental vault, or an outside plant remote-terminal. Operators can assign SLAs on each Ethernet Virtual Circuit. It has a comprehensive monitoring system that includes 802.1ag, Y.1731, and IP SLA. It supports VLANs, stacked VLANs (Q-in-Q), Class-of-Service, Quality-of-Service, traffic shaping, and policing. New services can be added to existing customers without service interruption and without the need for a truck roll. The 4000cp is a carrier-class Ethernet switch that extends the carrier’s Ethernet serving area beyond the limited reach of the optical network. It provides a carrier-class architecture that delivers demanding SLAs, cost-effective growth, fast and flexible deployment, and intuitive management tools.
