|100-03006||E7-2 EXA GPON-8 Card||45|
The Calix E7-2 GPON-8 line card provides eight ITU G.984-compliant Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) interfaces and four Gigabit Ethernet (GE) interfaces, along with two ports of integrated 10-Gigabit Ethernet. The E7-2 GPON-8 line card can be plugged into one or both of the two universal slots within a Calix E7-2 shelf. In a 1RU chassis, E7-2 supports sixteen PONs, up to 64 Optical Network Terminations (ONTs) for a total of 1024, plus eight point-to-point Ethernet subscribers and two 10GE ports. The E7-2 GPON-8 card supports a full set of Ethernet services and network topology protocols on the Ethernet ports and can be used interchangeably with other E7-2 line cards to create a redundant system configuration.
GPON AND POINT-TO-POINT ETHERNET: The
Calix E7-2 GPON-8 card provides multiservice capability over IP/Ethernet-based networks. Each GPON-8 provides eight GPON OLT ports that subtend up to 64 ONTs each, for a card capacity of 512 GPON ONTs, 1024 per E7-2 1RU chassis. Additional four GE ports per card can provide high-bandwidth, point-to-point Ethernet services to individual subscribers or be used to aggregate other Ethernet devices.
Multiple E7-2 shelves can be linked together using low cost, industry standard 10GE SFP+ copper cables, resulting in a high-density configuration serving over 1000 GPON ONT subscribers in as little as 1RU space (1:64 split).
GPON-8 card features and capabilities include:
INTEGRATED HIGH-CAPACITY AGGREGATION: The E7-2 GPON-8 card is built on a core Layer 2 and Layer 3 switch capable of full-duplex, line rate forwarding at all frame sizes and traffic types across all interfaces. Each GPON OLT port has a dedicated 2.5Gbps switch interface. Industry standard pluggable modules are used for all interfaces, including ITU G.984 compliant GPON, GE and 2.5GE optical SFP, and 10GE SFP+. The SFP+ ports also support SFP modules and Direct Attach copper cables.
IP SERVICES DELIVERY: The Calix E7-2 GPON-8 card delivers a full spectrum of IP access services over GPON and Point-to-Point Ethernet networks.
NETWORK RESILIENCY: All Calix E7 cards support a flexible set of standards-based network topology protocols for use in aggregation, ring-based transport, and uplink.
MOBILE BACKHAUL: With integrated network synchronization, hierarchical QoS and support for T1 services, the GPON-8 card transport uncompromised mobile broadband traffic while also supporting triple play residential and MEF certified business services from a single platform. A powerful collection of classification, policing, and scheduling algorithms let operators manage per-subscriber and per-service traffic flows to maintain priority/delay/loss service differentiation within the E7 network.
SCALABLE IPTV SUPPORT: The E7 supports industry standard IGMP snooping to identify and replicate multicast video sent between the set-top box and the video distribution network, providing efficient, scalable, high-quality IPTV distribution on both GPON and Ethernet interfaces.
MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Calix E7-2 shelf supports two GPON-8 line cards per shelf; Calix E7 Software Release 2. 2
Been working with PICS Telecom for years. Wonderful company and Bill McAuliffe is a great rep to work with!
I think Bill McAuliffe is the best. Always helpful and has gotten me out of a lot of jams.
I work with Bill McAuliffe and a lot of times we are buying switches but often we have off the wall or weird equipment that we have to find and Bill often times goes above and beyond. He may not always be able to get us the best price, but we definitely come back for the Service and effort.
I have worked with PICS Telecom for years and it has been a wonderful experience. Every one is very supportive and provides excellent customer service. Bill McAuliffe always goes above and beyond to address our needs and locate (or in some cases, build) difficult-to-find equipment.
Worked with Bill McAuliffe finding some much needed, hard to find parts. He hooked me up and was a pleasure to deal with. Will definitely buy from again!
Found Pics Telecom during a online search for secondary market equipment. Had a conversation with Bill and he helped me find the equipment I was looking for and gave me a great price! I have completed 2 other transactions with him since then. This is a wonderful company to work with, Thanks Bill for all of your help, you have been awesome to work with and I look forward to working with you on future equipment needs.
We have worked with Bill several times on several projects and Bill has never let us down. He is always quick to respond to our questions and can acquire specific gear we are looking for within a very short period of time.
Bill is always very helpful on getting the equipment we need. He is fast in response time and always competitive pricing. If there is any issues with the equipment after receiving it he has replaced it with no questions. In short a good person / company to deal with.
I appreciate the quick response and shipping. I try to check with you any chance I get when I need to purchase Ciena gear. You have great pricing and I have not received a defective unit yet so I know that I will get a quality part when I purchase thru you.
Thank you and it’s been a pleasure working with you and your team! I look forward to doing more business with you in the future!
I have been pretty fortunate lately in regards to equipment failures and replacements, but PICS has always been (thanks to the quality of service I’ve received from you) at the top of my list when I do have a need.
You and your company did an excellent job with the Nortel C1500 core repair and purchase. We did test both units upon receiving them, and they tested as advertised…If ever the occasion comes up with a neighboring telco in need of your services I will not hesitate to recommend you and your company.
