FRM220-CH20,CH08 & CH04A

iAccess™ Multi-Service Platform - FRM220 Series

In-Band Managed Multi-Service Platform-FRM220-CH20/08/04A

The FRM220 series is a multi-service chassis platform, which provides a reliable solution of high density media converter modules for applications such as telecom operator, enterprise, long haul transmission and factory automation. All of critical components of FRM220- CH20 and FRM220-CH08 chassis such as power modules, fans, management module and interface cards are hot swappable, allowing online field replacement.

FRM220 series is offered in three chassis densities, a 2U 20-slot (FRM220-CH20), a 1U 8-slot (FRM220-CH08), and a 1U 4-slot (FRM220-CH04A). FRM220-CH04A is a fixed type AC, DC power built-in chassis. The available power options are built-in AC, DC power or built-in AC+DC, AC+AC, DC+DC redundant power.

FRM220-CH20/08/04A Chassis Overview
  • Supports AC/DC power modules hot swappable and power redundant (CH20 & CH08)
  • Supports fixed type AC/DC power built-in and power redundant (CH04A)
  • Two alarm relay contacts for critical events warning
  • Interface cards are hot swappable
  • Chassis backplane consists of passive components
  • Module Cards for Deployment Scenarios

    The FRM220-CH20, FRM220-CH08 and FRM220-CH04A have been designed as a Multi-service platform. This allows network administrators to deploy the chassis in a wide range of networks. Technologies supported by the chassis include Fast/Gigabit Ethernet, E1/T1, V35/X21/ RS-530, Serial RS-485/RS-422, Voice FXO/FXS, Repeater, Fiber Multiplexer, E1 Inverse Multiplexer, CWDM Mux/DeMUX EDFA Booster and 40G/16G/10G 3R Transponder

  • Network Management

    The FRM220-CH20, FRM220-CH08 and FRM220-CH04A require a NMC (Network Management Controller FRM220-NMC page: 2-3) card which must be installed into the first slot of chassis. The NMC card allows a network administrator the ability to configure and monitor the status of the blades. Management can be achieved locally over RS232, or over the network by Telnet, Web or SNMP. If the blades support Ethernet in the First Mile (IEEE 802.3ah), then the management module can also be monitored the status of a remote CPE.

iAsccess™ Multi-Service Platform offers a full range of solutions for service provider and enterprise, including high density 40G/16G connectivity, DWDM, CWDM, distance extension, Ethernet Switch/NID, Fiber Modem, Fiber Multiplexer and Media Converter. It is a fully modular product series that integrates a wide range of optical transport modules for any interface or protocol hosted in selection of Chassis size for simple and flexible operations.

  • CWDM Telecom Access Network

    In this application, the iAccess FRM220 Multi-Service Platform enables a CWDM point-to-point access network incorporating four different services multiplexed over a single fiber link. Two FRM220-1000DS transponders, a MSW-404S NID and FRM220-GFOM08 Fiber Multiplexer are installed in a FRM220 20-slot chassis. There modules are connected with fiber patch cables to a 4-channel CWDM MUX/DEMUX that multiplexes all four channel services over a single fiber link.

  • CPRI over CWDM Fronthaul to Cell Towers

    This C-RAN application example illustrates how to transport four CPRI (Common Public Radio Interface) channels over one fiber fronthaul link using CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing). CTC CWDM Multiplexers, CWDM Add+Drop Multiplexers and 3R Transponders enable CWDM connectivity in a C-RAN over a fronthaul fiber link between Base Band Units (BBU) and Remote Radio Heads (RRH) located at two different cell towers.

  • Data Center Fiber Channel CWDM Interconnect

    Data Centers often have a cluster of Storage Area Networks (SAN) servers and storage discs connected using Fiber Channel. Data Centers require high speed connectivity to offsite SANs for transaction storage and database mirroring. To provide redundancy and disaster recovery, SAN from one Data Center can be extended to a SAN in another Data Center. This allows each Data Center to have a mirror copy of its database at each location.

  • 10 Gigabit Data Center Server Connectivity

    CTC Union 10G Ethernet converters provide 10G data center connectivity solutions, including copper to fiber connection between rack servers and switches. In this application, fiber cabling is used to extend distances between 10G switches and servers. 8-Module chassis with 10G Ethernet converters is used to convert the CAT-6A cabling from the RJ-45 ports on the aggregation switch to fiber. The 10G Ethernet converter supports SFP+ transceiver and can achieve fiber distances of up to 80km.
