FibroLAN Falcon Multi Service Network Termination Unit (NTU)
The FibroLAN Falcon is probably the most attractive NTU available in the market. The FibroLAN Falcon's features like a throughput of up to 16 Gbps, full TDM integration, advanced Carrier Ethernet functionality and comprehensive, standards compliant OAM, in a modestly priced unit make it very attractive. The FibroLAN Falcon is mainly targeted at businesses that require gigabit services to support high bandwidth applications.
These applications offer a great advantage to carriers allowing them to standardize on a single platform that resolves most of their NGN Access needs. Further advantage arises from its ability to operate under different network architectures: point to point, point to multipoint directly connected to any third party edge switch/aggregator, fast recovery ring, ultra-fast switchover for a 1+1 protection link and more. The
Falcon SE models support Synchronous Ethernet, allowing robust wireless backhauling and applications requiring precise synchronization. The
FibroLAN Falcon connects users to the edge at a BW ranging from 1 to 14Gbps. The Falcon brings a high-end Carrier Ethernet switch functionality at NTU costs. The basic model provides 8 RJ45 ports 10/100/1000T and 4 SFP ports each of them may be user- configured as either UNI port (Copper or fiber) or network port
(NNI). Up to six of the SFP ports are PowerLink ports, providing additional, advanced wire speed functionality which can be remotely
upgraded. Other models provide up to 8 E1/T1 ports allowing
TDM/Ethernet transmission as well as inverse Mux functionality (Ethernet over TDM channels) and 4 additional GbE SFP ports. When deployed in conjunction with FibroLAN’s MDX series WDM
multiplexers, both the Network bandwidth and the number of supported users may be further expanded.
