* 2 Channelized OC-3 STM-1 SONET/SDH interfaces per Lightspeed1000[TM] card - for monitoring both directions
The T320 router allows service providers and carriers to deploy ultra-dense OC-3 ATM, SONET/SDH aggregation to provide, for example, transport of Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), and Frame Relay (FR) customer traffic over MPLS.
For example, rather than ordering four separate OC-3 metro point-to-point connections, a customer could realize approximately $47,000 savings per year with the hubbed SONET Services by provisioning one aggregated OC-12 port with channelized, switched delivery to four different OC-3s at four different end locations.
