Eight Channel, Bi-directional ASI over OC 3 Transceiver

Interact with this product in a Layout Tool:


  • Transports signals at the OC-3/STM-1 line rate
  • Single card TDM multiplexer for 8 bi-directional asynchronous DVB-ASI signals
  • Flexible Bandwidth Management (FBM) automatically throttles Ethernet bandwidth with respect to applied video
  • Built-in Ethernet transceiver with one 10/100/1000 Base-T compatible port
  • Interfaces directly to the SONET/SDH infrastructure
  • Signal transport over fiber uninterrupted by loss of any input feed
  • Stratum 3 wander/holdover/jitter compliance
  • Fully hot-swappable from front of frame
  • Supports single-mode and multi-mode fiber optic cable (contact factory for multi-mode applications)
  • Optical output wavelengths of 1310nm, 1550nm, and up to sixteen CWDM wavelengths (ITU-T G.694.2 compliant)
  • DWDM wavelengths (ITU-T G.694.1 compliant) also available
  • SC/PC, FC/PC connector options
  • Comprehensive signal and card status monitoring via four digit card edge display or remotely through SNMP and VistaLINK®
  • VistaLINK® capability is available when modules are used with the 3RU 7800FR frame and a 7700FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller module in slot 1 of the frame
