The Cisco ME 4600 Series Multiservice Optical Access Platforms comprise reliable, modular, optical line termination and flexible optical network terminal/unit devices. The Cisco ME 4600 Series supports point-to-point or point-to-multipoint topology scenarios, such as fiber-to-the-home, building, curb, cell, and business.

Features and benefits

Switching capacity

Get 8.6-Tbps maximum switching capacity and up to 120 Gbps switching capacity per slot. These rates reduce long-term CapEx because operators do not have to replace optical line terminal (OLT) chassis to deploy next-generation technologies.

Port density

Up to 256 Gigabit PON (GPON) ports or 768 Gigabit Ethernet ports per 13 rack units results in more optical network terminals (ONTs) supported per chassis.

Service-focused provisioning

The ME 4600 Series makes it simple and easy to provision high-speed Internet access, voice, and video and TV services through management interfaces. It also reduces management costs and implementation time.

End-to-end integration

The ME 4600 Series works with other Cisco network aggregation, edge, and core products, lowering the risk of deployment and reducing operating expenses.

Unified management

By integrating with the Cisco Prime Management solution, the ME 4600 Series provides unified management and a comprehensive feature set for element and network management.
