Backward Compatibility

Equipment Functionality—The listed replacement product names (clip cards) are functionally equivalent to the EoS products. In addition, the recommended replacement products offer the customers numerous benefits, including:

Extended dispersion tolerance 3000 ps/nm, enabling distances up to 170 km

Supports new services that can be carried at any bit rate from 100 Mbps to 1.25 Gbps (for example, Fast Ethernet, ESCON, FICON, or Fibre Channel)

Requires only a single board for the new reshape and retransmit (2R) services, as well as existing reshape, retransmit, and retime (3R) SONET/SDH and Gigabit Ethernet services

Facilitates network management redundancy through support for multiple network control boards (NCBs) in a subnetwork

Enables fully meshed traffic in ring topologies

Supports future upgrade to 32 channels with lasers qualified for 100 GHz spacing

Protected or unprotected operation software configurable using the same board, thereby reducing the customer inventory/number of spare parts needed

Software Support—Replacement product names will operate with existing (release 1.1) system software. No new software will be required to support the replacement products.
