Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps
 ITU Trunk and Uplink Cards


The Cisco® ONS 15530 10 Gbps ITU Trunk Card provides the Cisco ONS 15530 DWDM Multiservice Aggregation Platform with the option to aggregate multiple ESCON, Fibre Channel, FICON, and Gigabit Ethernet services over a single ITU (International Telecommunication Union) wavelength. Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps ITU trunk cards are available in two versions: a 15xx nm 10 Gbps ITU dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) trunk card and a 10 Gbps 1310 nm uplink card. The 10 Gbps ITU trunk cards support any one of the DWDM channels in the 32-channel ITU C-band at 100-GHz spacing. The Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps Uplink Card provides a 1310 nm uplink option for connecting to a colocated Cisco ONS 15540 or Cisco ONS 15530 environment.

Benefits

  • Service aggregation—By performing service aggregation on a 10 Gbps wavelength, customers can dramatically increase their fiber-carrying capacity for storage and data applications. Up to 8 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, FICON, or 40 ESCON services can be multiplexed onto a single 10 Gbps ITU wavelength or 1310 nm signal.
  • Service mixing—The Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps trunk card or 10 Gbps uplink card combined with the Cisco ONS 15530 switch fabric provides network design flexibility and bandwidth efficiency by allowing a single 10 Gbps wavelength or 1310 nm signal to carry a combination of Fibre Channel, FICON, ESCON, and Gigabit Ethernet protocols between customer data centers. This greatly reduces network design complexity by minimizing the number of wavelengths required.
  • Design flexibility—With 2.5 Gbps and 10 Gbps trunk card options, the Cisco ONS 15530 platform provides greater scalability from low-density to high-density deployments. Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps ITU trunk cards support high-density applications over point-to-point or metro ring topologies.
  • Investment protection—As customers' service requirements change, the Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps ITU trunk card provides investment protection by being able to initially aggregate one protocol (for example, 20 ESCON services) and then later aggregate a different protocol (for example, 4 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, or FICON services) as application requirements change and/or grow. The 10 Gbps solution offers an attractive high-density solution.
  • Protection options—Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps trunk cards can be deployed with optical splitter-based protection (10 Gbps ITU trunk card) or 1+1 protection to provide enhanced service protection by sending the optical trunk signal simultaneously over both east and west fiber paths. In addition, the ONS 15530 10 Gbps trunk and uplink cards offer the ability to protect applications at a per-service level, unmatched by the industry today.
  • Performance monitoring—The Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps trunk card offers performance monitoring, providing the customer with the ability to monitor optical signal performance.
  • Partners—The Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps trunk card and 10 Gbps uplink cards are compatible with storage applications from Cisco partners, including IBM GDPS, EMC SRDF, HP/Compaq DRM, and HDS TrueCopy. This allows customers the choice of deploying the Cisco ONS 15530 platform in many types of storage environments with full confidence.
  • Storage applications—The Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps trunk card, coupled with ESCON, Fibre Channel, or FICON aggregation cards, can be used in storage networking applications such as business continuance, disaster recovery, disk mirroring, and storage-area network (SAN) extension.
  • Data networking—The Cisco ONS 15530 platform, configured with Cisco ONS 15530 10 Gbps trunk cards, can extend Gigabit Ethernet services over a 10 Gbps metro DWDM backbone for high-bandwidth intercampus networking applications. By networking IP traffic end-to-end in its native Ethernet format at wire speed and with full operations, administration, and management (OAM) capabilities, enterprises can avoid the added complexity and cost of protocol conversion and rate adaptation into another metropolitan- or wide-area network (MAN/WAN) protocol.
