HS8000 Application Overview
The 6703 Transponder is a general purpose protocol independent, data rate agile CWDM Transponder. The principle application is to convert standard 850nm or 1310nm optical signals to long reach CWDM wavelengths. Supporting Small Form factor Pluggable (SFP) optics on both the Local and Remote ports, it also functions as a mid-span repeater.
Data rates from 100Mbps to 2.5 Gbps support any application within the data range. Multi-Rate Clock Recovery and Retiming feature automatically senses the data rate and is configurable for uni-directional or bi-directional operation. It senses up to 10 different data rates including 4 user defined rates. User Defined data rates are specified to the nearest 1 Mbps (i.e.: 596 Mbps. The remaining 6 data rates are selected individually from a large list of standard SONET/SDH, SAN, LAN and Digital Video data rates.
Included with Clock Recovery is Canoga Perkins SpeedCop ® Bandwidth Monitoring feature. SpeedCop monitors the data rate of the optical signal and issues an alarm should the data rate exceed a user defined rate. SpeedCop is used for contract enforcement, premium service billing (billing based on data rate) and for proactive fault detection.Full SNMP management lets your Tech Control staff access status, configuration, and diagnostic functions of the 6703. This same access allows your field staff to access all modules in a CWDM system from a single access port, greatly easing their job.
The 6703's flexibility and management functions allow one transponder model to support all your circuit types. Fewer module types to purchase and stock, reduced training requirements, quicker problem identification and resolution lowers both acquisition and operations costs. Ease of installation and operation means quicker response to your customers and users thus increasing satisfaction.
