In an environment where bandwidth demand continues to grow at increasing rates, the ability to deploy additional capacity quickly, at low cost and without disruption to the existing network allows service providers to address their most important business issue, customer demand.
Designed to provide a high capacity solution to wavelength exhaust scenarios, EKINOPS RM 10001-WB operates over most existing line systems, including ROADMs, with ultra-long reach up to 6000 km. With support for 100GbE clients, the RM 10001-WB has the ability to address even the largest customers’ connectivity requirements without disrupting the service providers’ operational models, or their budgets. Its ultra-long reach can be used to provide additional capacity on terrestrial and submarine networks alike giving the RM10001-WB a wide range of applications over which it canbe used.
The EKINOPS RM 10001-WB is a single shelf that includes its own management card, fans, and redundant power supplies in addition to a QSFP28-based client interface and EKINOPS integrated 100G coherent line optics. Multiple shelves can be stacked together and treated as a single unit for management purposes with a single IP address to help simplify network operations. This 1 RU offering is ideal for space constrained applications such as co-location facilities and cable landing stations and, because it has been re-architected using on the latest available hardware, the EKINOPS RM 10001-WB uses 60% less power than our previous generation RM 100G transponder shelf making it deployable even in locations where power is scarce.
The EKINOPS RM 10001-WB can be managed through SNMP or via the EKINOPS standard element level management interfaces, which include a Command Line Interface (CLI) and an EKINOPS java-based Graphical User Interface (GUI). The CLI is accessible via Secure Socket Shell (SSH) and Telnet remotely or via a local serial port locally on the management board.
Complete performance monitoring and management are provided, including laser shutoff andlocal and remote loopback, useful for maintenance and fault isolation.
Digital Diagnostics Management (DDM) is supported for QSFP28 interfaces. This includes link status, transmit (TX) and receive (RX) signal power monitoring, and operational temperature, as well as manufacturer and transceiver model information essential for inventory management. A 10 Mbps in-band Data Communications Channel (DCC) is embedded in the line side for remotemanagement.
The EKINOPS RM 10001-WB is also supported by Celestis NMS, the EKINOPS advanced Network Management System.
