The POTS line cards for the MXK are high density modules that provide flexible voice over IP capabilities for the MXK 819/823 and MXK 319 Chassis.The integrated derived POTS lines convert packet voice to PSTN POTS allowing service providers to take advantage of a low-cost packet network and still provide subscribers with traditional POTS service. The card supports packet voice protocols SIP, MGCP, and H.248.
For easy migration from TDM voice to packet voice, the MXK can be connected to the MALC Voice Gateway card to provide GR-303 or V5.2 termination with packet voice connection to the POTS card at a remote site. Zhone’s SLMS (Single Line Multi-Service) access operating system provides intelligent functionality across all the company’s hardware products. Driven by 8 years of experience in commercial operation and collaboration with 700+ service providers worldwide, Zhone’s SLMS software delivers functionality critical to today’s access networks in advanced networking, quality of experience, voice, security, and management.
Zhone’s MXK intelligent terabit access concentrator reflects a clean-sheet approach to truly scalable multi-service architecture, designed to meet the rapidly evolving demands on access networks. The MXK is a full-featured Multi Service Access Platform enabling service providers to combine data, video and voice in one platform over a pure packet access network. MXK gives carriers the flexibility to cost-effectively deliver triple play services over existing facilities.
The MXK family includes three fully-integrated form factors:
- MXK-319 – 19″ Rack x 3RU, with 7 slots for line cards
- MXK-819 – 19″ Rack x 8RU, with 14 slots for line cards
- MXK-823 – 23″ Rack x 8RU, with 18 slots for line cards. The chassis support both front and rear power options and are equipped with a cable management tray, easy fan access, and redundant power feeds.
MXK UPLINK CARDS
MXK uplink cards offer a mix of multiple 10G and 1G interfaces to suit a variety of network designs. Several line rate configurations are currently available, including two different variants of 2x10G + 8x1G, as well as 6X1G. These cards provide connection points for common synchronization inputs including SyncE and 1588v2, as well as support for both copper and fiber SFPs, link aggregation, link redundancy, and the EAPS ring interface.
DZS’ SLMS (Single Line Multi-Service) access operating system provides intelligent functionality across all the company’s hardware products. Driven by experience in commercial operation and collaboration with 700+ service providers worldwide, DZS’ SLMS delivers functionality critical to today’s access networks in advanced networking, quality of experience, voice, security, and management.
To maintain tight security in the last mile, the MXK platform mounts considerable defenses, powered by all of DZS’s SLMS security features, including multicast control lists, secure bridging, broadcast suppression, dynamic IP filtering, SSH and SFTP, and RADIUS authentication.
The MXK product line integrates fully into the DZS Management System (ZMS). Using ZMS, thousands of MXK nodes can be managed from remote locations. Customer provisioning, auto discovery, alarm aggregation, and maintenance can easily be performed without any service interruption.
Unlike vendors who have dodged the complexity of the ITU’s G984.4 standard for GPON ONT management, DZS provides a simple and clean interface to a fully standards-compliant OMCI implementation. DZS’s Smart OMCI™ approach allows the MXK OLT to interoperate with any vendor’s ONT, yielding rapid ONT and service extension without OLT software upgrades. With Smart OMCI you can configure, obtain stats and support alarms on any ONT without hassle.
DZS offers a full line of outside cabinets engineered specifically to support MXK platforms. Multiple configurations are available for deployments from small to large scales, with a wide range of powering, protection, and line termination options.
