Canoga Perkins approved and certified for NEBS Level 3 severe service

July 18, 2001--Canoga Perkins, a supplier of fiber-optic extension equipment and WDM systems, has been approved and certified for NEBS Level 3 severe service on the 9120 gigabit Ethernet extender and the managed 2345 T3 fiber-optic modem.

Canoga Perkins, a supplier of fiber-optic extension equipment and WDM systems, has been approved and certified for NEBS Level 3 severe service on the 9120 gigabit Ethernet extender and the managed 2345 T3 fiber-optic modem. The 9135G gigabit Ethernet customer premise demarcation product is expected to get this same certification by the end of July.

The 2345 T3 fiber-optic modem is an SNMP managed product that optically extends standard T3/DS-3 over single-mode or multimode fiber-optic cable. The 2345 can extend circuits 100 Km to add great flexibility and new applications to a system. The 2345 offers optical and full modem redundancy options for nonstop operation, and is modular and hot-swappable for easy servicing. It has performance monitoring per ITU-G.826 and RFC2496.

The 2345 has VT100,ASLIP, PPP and SNMP management support. Local and remote loopbacks are standard. It also supports B3ZS line coding and AMI pulse coding as well as M13 and C-bit parity framing formats. The input and out alarm relays allow complete monitoring. The end-to-end side-band management does not take any of the data payload allowing more data to get through faster.

The 2345 is offered as a stand-alone product and as a blade in the USC 1000 and USC 1001 universal chassis system that can house multiple technologies in one manageable chassis.

The 9120 is a full-duplex gigabit Ethernet fiber-optic extender that can drive the circuit 90 Km. This distance allows new and profitable applications. Multimode and single-mode fiber is supported. A set of front panel LEDs is used for diagnostics and monitoring.

The 9120 is 802.3 1000BASE-SX and LX compatible. The device comes standard with link loss forwarding, link loss echo and Canoga remote fault. The 9120 can be ordered as a stand-alone or can be rack mounted in a 9101 chassis.

The 9135G provides managed termination service for native Ethernet LAN extension circuits. It provides SNMP management and a choice of field installable optical interfaces to address a wide range of fiber-optic applications.

The 9135G is an intelligent fiber-optic edge device used at the customer premises to terminate gigabit Ethernet service that fully supports in band SNMP network management and out-of-band management for VT100 and SLIP via individual terminal and modem ports.

The 9135G supports remote software upgrade capability, fixed or auto-negotiation and hot-swappable gigabit interface modules. Both ports of this two-port unit support full duplex operation at wire speed. The 9135G is suitable for a host of service provider applications where a two-port switch is required.

NEBS Level 3 is required by service providers for use in central office applications. NEBS is a strict testing environment for personnel safety, protection of property and operational continuity. This includes physical and electrical requirements. NEBS is based on, or is the basis of, national and international standards.
