The Optimux-1551 is a plug-and-play SDH/SONET terminal multiplexer, delivering multiple PDH tributary channels over a single STM-1/OC-3 (155 Mbps) link.
High capacity ADM with a terminal mux
The Optimux-1551 combines the high capacity associated with SDH/SONET add/drop multiplexers (ADMs) with the simplicity and low cost of a terminal multiplexer to significantly reduce OpEx and CapEx. Extending point-to-point services over coax or fiber to remote locations, the Optimux allows service providers to increase their customer reach, while avoiding the cost and complexity associated with deploying high-end ADMs. Furthermore, the Optimux-1551 eliminates the need for deploying PDH multiplexers at customer sites by consolidating traffic at the edge of the SDH/SONET network. This enables service providers to save the cost of fiber deployment and multiple ports on the ADM.
