TSoP Smart SFP is a
special type of optical transceiver which provides solution to transparently
encapsulate SDH or SONET bit streams into packet format, suitable for
pseudowire transport over an ethernet network The TSoP psuedowires is manually
configured or setup using PWE3 control protocol [RFC4447].
packetization, de-packetization, and clock recovery that translates the TDM bit
stream to fixed size data blocks (810 octets), and vice verse.
TSoP follows the SAToP
method described in [RFC4553] for pseudowire transport of E1/DS1, over a packet
switched network. With TSoP, the entire OC-3 or STM-1 is encapsulated in a
single circuit emulating pseudowire traffic, and is transported it to a single
destination across the ethernet network.
The TSoP smart SFP
is used on any of the front panel ports of the 8-port Gigabit Ethernet SFP
Interface Module (8X1GE).
The Smart SFP
transceivers is compatible with the Small Form Factor Pluggable 20-pin
Multi-Source Agreement (MSA).
