The FCD-155E transports Ethernet traffic over SDH or SONET networks, enabling carriers and service providers to provide LAN connectivity and internet access while continuing to support E1, T1, E3, or T3 traffic.
Ethernet over SDH/SONET with TDM support
Used as an add/drop multiplexer on the SDH/SONET ring, the FCD-155E improves bandwidth efficiency by supporting Ethernet over SDH/SONET encapsulation and framing to enable IP channel bandwidth configuration in increments up to 100 Mbps wire-speed.
The FCD-155E is widely deployed by carriers and service providers to leverage their optical bandwidth for revenue-generating Ethernet services, while enterprises, utilities and campuses use it to provide LAN services over existing fiber optic infrastructure.
