Westwave's access softswitch is standards-based and interoperates with best-of-class next generation access equipment including NGDLCs and media gateways.
The Media Layer - The media layer defines service delivery and consists of access devices, such as NGDLCs, digital subscriber line access multiplexers (DSLAMs), voice-over-DSL gateways, and media/trunking gateways.
Infonetics defines the BLC category as packet-based devices designed to handle the next wave of higher bandwidth per subscriber including consumer switched HDTV, with capacities of 1 to 2 orders of magnitude above the existing generation of NGDLCs.
This allows Etisalat to uplink both narrowband and broadband traffic from the Raptor 100 DSLAMs as well as from their existing DLC, NGDLC and DSLAM equipment onto a common Zhone network.
The Access Optimizer is being used not only for subtending Zhone chassis, but also for subtending traffic from other vendor's legacy NGDLCs and DSLAMs.
In addition, the Raptor is the only family of DSLAMs that offer software upgradeability to a fully functional voice and data NGDLC, and provides in-service software-selectable ATM or IP uplinks.
The new packet ring capability expands the flexibility of the MALC product family with an even broader range of configuration options while maintaining common management, integrated cross-connect, integrated loop qualification with internal splitters, efficient bandwidth management and flow-through provisioning capabilities to clearly differentiate the platform from traditional NGDLC platforms.
These cards allow carriers to uplink both narrowband and broadband traffic from any leading DLC, NGDLC or DSLAM thereby enabling the broadest array of available network topologies in the industry.
As a result, carriers are able to upgrade their networks to newer packet based solutions while retaining their investment in pre-existing DLC, NGDLC and DSLAM platforms.
The new Access Optimizer capability expands the flexibility of the MALC product family with an even broader range of configuration options while maintaining common management, integrated cross-connect, integrated loop qualification with internal splitters, and flow-through provisioning capabilities to clearly differentiate the platform from traditional NGDLC platforms.
This is achieved while maintaining software selectable service ports, integrated cross-connect, integrated loop qualification and flow-through provisioning capabilities to clearly differentiate the platform from legacy NGDLC platforms.
