FCD-155E - Ethernet over SDH/SONET ADM
FCD-155E is an STM-1/OC-3 add/drop multiplexer that transports LAN and traditional (TDM) traffic over SDH/SONET networks. When bandwidth granularity of the Ethernet channel is configured to 2 Mbps (VC-12) or 1.5 Mbps (VT-1.5), FCD-155E utilizes the SDH/SONET infrastructure for cost-effective connectivity.
Ethernet over SDH/SONET with TDM support
Used as an add/drop multiplexer on the SDH/SONET ring, the FCD-155E improves bandwidth efficiency by supporting Ethernet over SDH/SONET encapsulation and framing to enable IP channel bandwidth configuration in increments up to 100 Mbps wire-speed.
The FCD-155E is widely deployed by carriers and service providers to leverage their optical bandwidth for revenue-generating Ethernet services, while enterprises, utilities, and campuses use it to provide LAN services over existing fiber-optic infrastructure.
