Ethernet 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.

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.
