MetroCONNECT supporting Multiple Ethernet Demarcation LAN Extension Devices
This application shows an MC12000 MetroCONNECT chassis with WCC5200 modules, supporting multiple WCM5100 Gigabit Ethernet converters to STM-1/OC-3 devices. The MetroCONNECT and WCM5100 together offer Ethernet Extension and Ethernet demarcation, with remote management via 802.3ah OAM. Various service delivery options are available including fibre, copper, and fibre plus copper over an STM-1 or OC-3 circuit. Comprehensive remote network management access is available via the MetroCONNECT including end to end remote management using 802.3ah OAM. 10M, 100M and Gigabit Ethernet applications can all be supported, as can Jumbo frames.
WCM5100 delivering Ethernet services from an MPLS core network
This application shows an WCM5100 unit being used as the Ethernet demarcation device to deliver a Carrier Ethernet service from an MPLS core network. A wide choice of Ethernet connectivity is available for the user via the 10/100/1000baseT and SFP fibre ports. OAM support means that the WCM5100 can be remotely managed by the central network management system using standards based OAM packets. GFP is supported allowing single ended use with aggregation platforms in the core network.
WCM5100 units performing Ethernet service demarcation and media conversion
This application shows how a pair of WCM5100 units can be used to offer Ethernet service demarcation and Ethernet Extension functionality either over an STM-1 or OC-3 circuit.
The WCM5100 is a member of the MetroCONNECT family, offering Managed LAN extension over STM1 (SDH) or OC3 (Sonet) Wide Area Networks.The WCM5100 supports two RJ45 LAN interfaces. A further LAN interface is provided via an SFP port, offering the flexibility of an RJ45 or a wide variety of fibre interface options. Over-sized Ethernet frames, of up to 2048 bytes, are supported.
Ethernet VLANs are supported, either by pass-through of existing Tags or by the Push and Pop of Tags on ingress and egress at Ethernet ports. Pre-embedded prioritisation schemes can be honoured, or alternatively prioritisation can be over-written under Management control. Bandwidth limitation per port and per prioritisation can be implemented, providing a mechanism for differentiated QoS for multiple services. Management is offered via each of; Serial Terminal connection,Telnet, SNMP or Web Browser application. Management security is offered via SSH and TACACS+ authentication. Support is also offered for ‘Carrier Ethernet’ Link OAM Management (IEEE802.3ah), enabling status information to be shared with connected equipment if required.
In line with all other members of the MetroCONNECT Ethernet Service Delivery family, the WCM5100 supports Metrodata’s ‘zero-touch’ installation process, eliminating the need for skilled resources for remote-site installations.
Ethernet traffic is encapsulated by the WCM5100, for transmission over the WAN link, using a number of optional schema, including support for the ITU-T G.7041 standard ‘Generic Framing Procedure’ (GFP).The product can be used for both simple Point-to-Point networks, using two WCM5100 products linked via either terrestrial or wireless (e.g. microwave) WAN services, or as part of a Point-to-MultiPoint topology, using the MetroCONNECT MC12000 Ethernet Service Delivery Chassis, or third- party aggregation platforms.
The WCM5100 is available in a choice of 100-250 VAC or -48 VDC integrated power supplies.
The WCM5100 can easily be rack mounted in either a 1U two unit rack mount kit, a 6U eighteen unit rack mount kit.
The WCM5100 is part of a wide range of LAN extension products from Metrodata.
