FIBER OPTIC LINKS
A line of high-speed fiber-optic link products for Internet/intranet
connection implements either the T-3, E-3, STS-1, or OC-1 protocols. A total of 18 models are offered to complement
a T-1/E-1 line of products.
All models are available in 1U high, 19-inch, rack-mounted cases for installation in existing telecom/datacom racks.
The T-3 protocol runs at 44.736 Mbps, the E-3 at 34.368 Mbps, and the STS-1 and OC-1 at 51.84 Mbps. The enclosures
hold one or two units. The second unit provides redundancy where required.
These high-speed units are engineered to interconnect a telecom switch to another switch, voice/data multiplexers,
or routers. They allow communication over long distances without the use of repeaters. Extended distances to 50
km with a single-mode fiber are also possible.
The products are available with options such as ST/SC/FC connections for single-mode operation.
