With over 1,000 global customers deploying DZS’s world-class solutions for their service provider and enterprise networks, in some of the harshest and most demanding environments in the industry in its pedigree, DZS’s MXK-F™ ultra high-capacity fiber-optimized aggregation platform is the latest cost effective addition to its world renowned MXK™ portfolio.
At the heart of this highly-capable platform is the MXK-F™ Management Card. With countless years of proven field experience, the management architecture of the MXK-F™ represents DZS’s latest state-of-the-art design, further raising the bar set high by other DZS MXK-family solutions.
With a fully distributed database, both boot and upgrade times are exceedingly low to reduce enterprise and service provider OPEX, and since the forwarding plane control does not reside on the MXK-F™ Management Card, reboots and upgrade events are much simpler ensuring an optimal level of both reliability and availability – particularly when optionally equipped with redundant MXK-F™ Management Cards.
Also, in addition to its management duties and user interface support ports, MXK-F™ Management Cards provide synchronization connection points for Synchronous Ethernet, 1588v2, and E1/T1/BITS timing inputs.
