Product ManualManual
  • Interfaces directly to SONET (OC-192) or SDH (STM-64) infrastructure
  • Flexibility to combine video and Ethernet signals to fill SONET/SDH capacity in each direction:
    • Six HD-SDI signals, plus one SDI/DVB-ASI or 10/100/1000 (FBM) Ethernet
    • Five HD-SDI signals, plus two SDI/DVB-ASI and 10/100/1000 (FBM) Ethernet
    • Four HD-SDI signals, plus three SDI/DVB-ASI and 10/100/1000 (full bandwidth) Ethernet
    • Other combinations up to Eight SDI/DVB-ASI, plus 10/100/1000 (full bandwidth) Ethernet
  • Full-rate, uncompressed, asynchronous video channels with wide tolerance (±50ppm)
  • Flexible Bandwidth Management (FBM) to control Ethernet bandwidth allocation
  • One loopback (output channel eight), user selectable for monitoring of inputs/outputs
  • Pluggable XFP fiber module permits wavelength swapping/sparing
  • SONET/SDH jitter performance with Stratum 3 clocking
  • Comprehensive signal and card status monitoring via four-digit card-edge display
  • VistaLINK® enabled for remote monitoring/control, with two possible interface methods:
    • Using local Ethernet connection on rear-plate (has local SNMP Agent)
    • Using 7700FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller installed in 7700FR-C frame
  • Automatic coaxial equalization up to 70m at 2.97Gb/s, 100m at 1.485Gb/s, and 250m at 270Mb/s (Belden 1694A or equivalent cable)
  • Fully hot-swappable from front (main board) and rear (XFP fiber module) of frame
  • Optical output wavelengths of 1310nm and 1550nm
  • Female LC Duplex fiber connector
