Averaging one major release per year since its introduction, the Cisco ONS 15454 has evolved into a comprehensive solution that reduces expenses while maximizing network efficiency and providing investment protection for over 1,000 Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) and 500 MSTP customers worldwide.
The Cisco ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) is the most deployed metropolitan-area and regional dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) solution in the world. It features two- through eight-degree reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) technology that enables wavelength provisioning across entire networks. It also eliminates the need for optical-to-electrical-to-optical (OEO) transponder conversions. The ONS 15454 MSTP interconnects with Layer-2, Layer-3 and storage area network (SAN) devices at rates up to 40 GBPS. It delivers any service type to any network location and supports all DWDM topologies.
The platform offers reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexing (ROADM) functions that allow zero to 40 channels of pass-through or add/drop in both the C-band and the L-band, A–Z wavelength provisioning, and full real-time power monitoring of each individual wavelength.
The 9-slot Cisco Catalyst 6509-E Switch provides high port densities that are ideal for many wiring closet, distribution, and core network as well as data center deployments. The Cisco Catalyst 6509-E supports Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series end-to-end operational consistency benefits with important features including: supervisor engines, 10 Gigabit Ethernet modules, Shared Port Adaptors/SPA Interface Processors and Multi-Gigabit services modules (content services ,firewall, intrusion detection, IP Security [IPSec], VPN, network analysis, and Secure Sockets Layer [SSL] acceleration).
