PM E1008

Pluggable 10G Ethernet muxponder

PM E1008

Pluggable 10G muxponder with eight Gigabit Ethernet SFP client ports. Single pluggable 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ line side port. Used for cost-efficient aggregation of GbE services as well as direct connectivity to FlexRate and 100G muxponder modules for aggregation to a high-speed coherent line.

Aggregation GigEEthernet is by far the most popular networking protocol deployed today and will be for the foreseeable future. It’s low cost, high level of standardization and ability to support anytype of service from 10 Mb/s to 100 Gb/s and even 400 Gb/smakes it highly adaptable to any private or public networking application.

While most service provider networks have moved to 100G transport rates and beyond, many of their customers are still using lower speed 1GbE connections.

EKINOPS’ PM E1008 is designed to address this network disconnect. It efficiently aggregates up to eight 1 Gigabit Ethernet clients onto a single 10 Gigabit Ethernet line which can either be transported directly over the optical line system or further aggregated onto a 100G or even 200G wavelength. The PM E1008 uses all pluggable optics supporting eight SFP client interfaces and one SFP+-based lineport using either 850 nm, 1310 nm or 1550 nm WDM optics.


The EKINOPS PM E1008 supports Remote Monitoring (RMON) management functions such as packet and byte counters, Cyclical Redundancy Check (CRC errors) and packet errors on both the client and line interfaces. At the element level, the PM E1008 can be managed through SNMP or via the EKINOPS standard element level management interfaces, which includes a CLI (Command Line Interface) and an EKINOPS java-based GUI (Graphical User Interface).The CLI is accessible via SSH and Telnet remotely or via a local serial port locally on the Management board.

Complete performance monitoring andmanagement is provided, including laser shut off and local and remote loopback which is useful for maintenance and fault isolation. Digital Diagnostics Management (DDM) is supported for both SFP and SFP+ interfaces. This includes link status, transmit (TX) and receive (RX) signal power monitoring, and operational temperature, as well as manufacturer and transceiver model.

The EKINOPS PM E1008 is also supported by Celestis NMS, the EKINOPS Network Manager.

  • Efficient Layer 1 Gigabit Ethernet client aggregation
  • Reduces port count saving space and power
  • 10 Gigabit Ethernet line
  • Interfaces with EKINOPS 100G and 200G muxponders for higher speed aggregation
  • Pluggable Module compatible with all EKINOPS chassis already installed in the field
  • Economical agnostic SFP interfaces for client side interfaces
  • Pluggable SFP(+)- based line interface

The EKINOPS PM E1008 is designed for access aggregation and metro/regional transport of Gigabit Ethernet traffic using higher speed 10GbE wavelengths, or even beyond. It efficiently grooms traffic — whether from a cell tower, campus, enterprise or office building — and delivers it to any switch, router or other Ethernet based device. It can also be used to groom low speed traffic onto 100G or even 200G wavelengths as the native 10 Gigabit Ethernet framing can interface as a client to EKINOPS — or any third party — 100G or 200G coherent muxponders.

This high level of low speed service aggregation provides 100 to 200 times better bandwidth utilization while reducing both CAPEX and OPEX. Service providers can also use it to add capacity to exhausted metro rings by deploying the WDM line signal as an Alien wavelength over any standard 50GHz or 100GHz spaced ITU-T grid.

  • Improving bandwidth efficiency via access aggregation of multiple 1GbE customer traffic streams into a single 10GbE wavelength
  • Low speed aggregation onto high speed coherent line
  • Capacity addition as an Alien wavelength over existing network
