Optimux-1025 ( OP-125 )Fiber Optic Multiplexer for 16 T1s and Gigabit Ethernet
Optimux-1025 (OP-1025 ) Fiber Optic Multiplexer for 16 E1/T1 and Gigabit Ethernet
A few of the key points are:
-Multiplexes up to 16 E1/T1 with up to 3x10/100/1000 user Ethernet traffic over a
proprietary 1000 Mbps fiber optic uplink
- Range extension of up to 120 km (74.5 miles)
- Fiber optic real-time Digital Diagnostic and Monitoring (DDM)
- Managed using RADview-EMS, or RAD command line interface (CLI)
- Redundant hot-swappable uplink interfaces and power supplies
The Optimux product line is part of RADs Axcess+ portfolio for Multiservice Access
Platform and First Mile solutions. The portfolio combines extensive support for legacy services with future-proof Ethernet
capabilities to address the challenges faced by utilities, transportation networks,
carriers, and mobile operators in migrating to next-generation networks and services
with flexibility, efficiency and carrier-class reliability.
The RAD Optimux-1025 ( OP-1025 ) provides a simple, flexible, and cost-effective
point-to-point solution for transporting
combined E1/T1 and Ethernet traffic over a fiber link, to distances of up to 120 km
The single-box solution for TDM and Ethernet offers a pay-as-you-grow model by supporting initial deployments of
partial capacity with license-based upgrades when needed.
Optimux-1025 or OP-1025 for short includes two fiber optic uplinks (one main and one backup),
three User Ethernet ports (one activated
by default) and 16 E1 or T1 tributary ports (4 activated by default).
Each product features four licenses:
TDM additional 4, 8 or 12 TDM ports for a total of 16 TDM ports
ETH two additional GbE User ports for a total of three 10/100/1000 interfaces.
RAD Optimux-1025 ( OP-1025 ) TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Figure 1 demonstrates a mobile backhauling application where 2G/3G and WiMax services are transmitted
transparently from rural locations to a central site over fiber. In such applications
Optimux acts as a fiber extension reaching up to 120 km, eliminating the need for
massive fiber deployments to rural areas.
Optimux-1025 ( OP-1025 ) provides a solution to carriers and service providers, employing
both TDM and PSN infrastructures and wishing to extend services in a single chassis solution. A carrier point-to-point
application is shown in Figure 2.
OP-1025 ( Optimux-1025 ) Multiservice Sharing
Inter-branch connectivity for multiservice sharing of voice and data for university
campuses, health care organizations,
financial institutions, government offices can be established with Optimux-1025
( OP-1025 ). Such an enterprise application is shown in
UPLINK INTERFACES OF THE OP-1025
Optimux-1025 features a 1000 Mbps fiber optic uplink with bandwidth shared between Ethernet
traffic and up to 16 TDM channels.
Various interfaces (based on SFP transceivers) are available for both the active and the backup uplinks:
850 nm short haul VCSEL over multimode fiber for very short range applications
1310 nm short or long-haul laser and 1550 nm long-haul laser interfaces for extended range over single-mode fiber
Single-fiber interface using WDM technology with a different wavelength of receive and transmit
signals (1310 nm and 1490 nm, 1490 nm and 1570 nm).
Optimux 1025 LINK PROTECTION
Upon link failure, the unit automatically switches to an optional second uplink as a backup.
Optimux-1025 supports revertive
and non-revertive protection modes.
OP-1025 T1 INTERFACES
Optimux-1025 multiplexes 16 T1 channels. The T1 interfaces comply with the ITU-T G.824 for jitter
requirements. Line coding B8ZS or AMI for T1. A pair of LEDs monitors loss-of-signal and AIS on each
T1 receive line. By default, 4 TDM interfaces are activated, the remaining 12 ports can be activated via a software
ETHERNET USER INTERFACES OF THE RAD OPTIMUX-1025
Optimux-1025 features 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports enabling up to 1000-Mbps Ethernet connection. It can be supplied
with one or three 10/100/1000BaseT copper or 1000BaseX Fiber Ethernet ports with SerDes interface. When three ports
are ordered, only one of them is activated by default. The second and third ports are
activated via a software key. The USER-ETH interfaces comply with the
ITU-T G.802.3 requirements.
The OP-1025 transmits each T1 channel separately so that the clock of each T1 channel is independent. The
Optimux-1025 supports internal timing mode, which means that the uplink transmit clock
is sourced from internal local oscillator.
The RAD Optimux-1025 ( OP-1025 ) features comprehensive test and diagnostic capabilities that include local
and remote loopbacks on each T1 port. On the fiber optic interfaces the Optimux supports digital diagnostic monitoring
(DDM) functions according to the SFF-8472 standard. This feature enables the end user to monitor real-time
parameters of the SFP, such as optical output and input power, temperature,
laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage. To ease system diagnostics, Optimux-1025
features LED status indicators and AIS
alarm generation and recognition. The devices also feature an optional output alarm port with dry relay contacts for
major and minor alarms and an input alarm port that supports up to 4 input alarms.
Optimux-1025 can be managed using the following tools:
Local RS-232 terminal
Optimux features RADs Command Line Interface (CLI) and RADview-EMS to ease configuration and management.
In addition, the product incorporates security features including Secure Shell (SSH), SNMPv3 and RADIUS.
OPTIMUX1025 PHYSICAL INFORMATION
Optimux-1025 is a compact, 1U-high unit.
The units can be mounted in a 19-inch, ETSI or 23-inch racks.
An extended temperature option is available supporting a temperature range of -20° to 65°C (-4° to 149°F). This
option is equipped with additional fans and must be used with H SFP versions only.
The OP-1025 can be ordered with an AC power source (90 to 260 VAC), a DC power source (-40 to -72 VDC) or a
wide-range power source (90 to 260 VAC and 40 to 375 VDC). The wide-range power source is available only with
ordering options featuring a single USER-ETH interface (1NULL or 1UTP). A second power supply can be ordered for
