The Diamonds judges applauded the "high flexibility and dense configuration" of the 5142 Service Aggregation Switch, which is optimized for compact dense metro access. It boasts four 1 GigE/10 GigE SFP/SFP+ ports and 20 100M/1000M SFP ports, and can support conditioned or unconditioned environments. The company says that the product's density and high availability design make it capable of supporting Ethernet business services, LTE mobile backhaul, synchronization as a service, and utility smart grid networking.
To support CE 2.0 compliant MEF Ethernet services, operators can choose from a variety of packet transport options, including 802.1q VLANs, 802.1ad provider VLANs (Q-in-Q), G.8032 rings, MPLS and MPLS-TP. The 5142 includes a W.1564/RFC2544 traffic test generator and reflector functionality, hardware-based packet QAM, extended temperature range, and flexible powering. A Stratum 3E oscillator provides synchronization and timing support, and all-front access eases installation and maintenance.www.ciena.comSee them at Cable-Tec Expo, Booth 1326Return to the BTR Diamond Technology Reviews Elite.
