Occam Networks offers 2364 ONT to serve SMBs, IT, and mobile operators

NOVEMBER 10, 2009 -- Occam Networks Inc. has unveiled the ON 2364 optical network terminal (ONT). The ON 2364 is designed to deliver business Ethernet, T1s, and legacy voice services over an optical Gigabit Ethernet uplink and be interoperable with Occam’s family of FTTP OLTs.

NOVEMBER 10, 2009 -- Occam Networks Inc. has unveiled the ON 2364 optical network terminal (ONT). The ON 2364 is designed to deliver business Ethernet, T1s, and legacy voice services over an optical Gigabit Ethernet uplink and be interoperable with Occam’s family of FTTP OLTs.

Supporting the latest pseudowire emulation edge to edge (PWE3) technology, the ON 2364 is well suited for backhaul of existing business services such as PBX, private-line, and fractional T1 circuits and allows operators to migrate mission-critical traffic to optical networks without forcing upgrades to existing enterprise or SMB equipment, Occam asserts. As businesses demand more bandwidth, the ON 2364 also provides 100 Mbps or Gigabit Ethernet LAN interfaces to accommodate IT environments.

Combining gigabit optical transport with eight T1s and Gigabit Ethernet base station LAN interface, the ON 2364 also is designed to simplify the transition from legacy TDM backhaul to Ethernet backhaul at mobile and wireless sites. While the transition to LTE, which is best served with Ethernet backhaul, is expected to begin in earnest in the next 12-24 months, the current popularity of T1s for backhaul requires a combination of legacy and Ethernet interfaces, Occam says.

The ON 2364 is designed to support existing TDM business and base station equipment as well as Ethernet from a simple, easy to deploy footprint. With support for the Network Synchronization Protocol (NSP), the 2364 also maintains network synchronization for all TDM and voice traffic. NSP is a packet synchronization protocol and provides G.824 jitter compliance.

Operators can deploy the ON 2364 in 12 or 24 to 48 V power environments, which the company says assures operational simplicity in outdoor SMB, strip mall, and base station applications. This flexibility eliminates the need for an extensive range of configuration options, enabling operators to standardize on a simple service delivery approach for a multitude of applications, Occam maintains.
