The Cisco ME 4600 Series Multiservice Optical Access Platforms comprise reliable, modular, optical line termination (OLT) and flexible optical network terminal/unit (ONT/ONU) devices. 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.
Managing the explosion in data traffic on both fixed and mobile networks is challenging to all service providers. To meet demand for higher bandwidth, service providers are looking for solutions such as fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) that are cost-effective and easy to deploy and manage.
The Cisco ME 4600 Series easily scales aggregation services and helps enable operators to offer both end-user and wholesale services. It also incorporates the latest features available in FTTP technologies.
The ME 4600 Series OLTs help enable operators to deploy next-generation optical access networks with improved margins. These products help reduce costs and increase revenue streams as you offer new, higher-value business and residential multimedia services.
The following are key features of the ME 4600 Series:
Get 8.6 Tbps maximum switching capacity and up to 120 Gbps switching capacity per slot. These rates reduce long-term capital expenditures (CapEx) as operators will not have to replace OLT chassis when deploying next-generation passive optical network (PON) technologies.
Up to 256 Gigabit PON (GPON) ports or 768 Gigabit Ethernet ports per 13 rack units (RUs) results in supporting more ONTs per chassis.
The ME 4600 Series makes it very simple and easy to provision high-speed Internet access, voice, and video/TV services through management interfaces (CLI, WebUI, EMS Agora-NG). And it reduces management costs and implementation time by abstracting lower-level GPON layer capabilities for the operator.
ME 4600 Series works with other Cisco network aggregation, edge, and core products, lowering risk of deployment and operational expenses.
By integrating with Cisco Prime Management solution, ME 4600 Series provides unified management and comprehensive feature set for element and network management.
