The Cisco® ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) supports the Cisco ONS 15454 10-Port 10 Gbps Line Card, which simplifies the integration and transport of 10-Gbps interfaces and services into enterprise or service provider optical networks (Figure 1).

Release 9.6 of the Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP extends the total data transport capacity by a factor of three, allowing Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (DWDM) transmission of up to 9.6 Tbps (96 wavelengths at 100 Gbps each) in the C-band.

The bandwidth carried on core and metropolitan DWDM networks is growing exponentially, while operators’ revenues are not keeping pace. The Cisco ONS 15454 100-Gbps solution can dramatically lower the cost-to-carry bandwidth, helping to maintain and improve customers’ profitability. Internet growth is still exponential, mainly due to demand for next-generation services such as quadruple play (data, voice, video, and mobility), video distribution, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), and other high-bandwidth services.

Due to advanced modulation techniques, the ability to transmit 100-Gbps wavelengths on existing or new DWDM systems maximizes return on investment by increasing the overall capacity per fiber pair without impacting the unregenerated transmission distance supported by the system. Scaling from 10 Gbps to 40 Gbps and now 100 Gbps multiplies by a factor of 10 the bandwidth that can be transported over existing fiber networks.

New Coherent Polarization-Multiplexing Differential Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (CP-DQPSK) modulation supports 9.6 Tbps capacity transmission over Ultra-Long-Haul (ULH) networks, up to 3000 km of unregenerated optical spans.

The Cisco ONS 15454 10-Port 10 Gbps Line Card is designed to provide up to 10 ports of 10-Gbps services aggregated over 100-Gbps DWDM wavelengths when combined with the Cisco ONS 15454 100 Gbps Coherent DWDM Trunk Card.

Product Features and Benefits

The Cisco ONS 15454 10-Port 10 Gbps Line Card consists of 10 Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) based ports and one 100-Gbps Channel Express (CXP) based port. Each of the 10-Gbps SFP+ based ports can support the following services:

●   OC-192/STM-64 (9.95328 Gbps)

●   10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN PHY (10.3125 Gbps)

●   10-Gbps Fibre Channel (10.518 Gbps)

●   8-Gbps Fibre Channel

●   OTU-2

◦     Standard G.709 (10.70923 Gbps)

◦     G.709 overclocked to transport 10 Gigabit Ethernet as defined by ITU-T G; Sup43 Clause 7.1 (11.0957 Gbps)

Client ports can be equipped with a large variety of pluggable SFP+ transceivers, including grey or DWDM optics.

The Cisco ONS 15454 10-Port 10 Gbps Line Card provides many carrier-class features and advanced capabilities necessary to deliver 10-Gbps services, including protocol transparency, wavelength tunability, flexible protection mechanisms, flow-through timing, and management and performance monitoring capabilities.
