TruePulse would like to purchase RAP cards 100-00517, 100-01930 and 100-01435 for the Calix C7.
The 100-00517, HECI CNUCAJP, is a RAP2 1310nm OC3/12/48
The 100-01930, HECI code SOUCARW, is a RAP3 circuit board.
The 100-01435, HECI code SOUIBM3, is a RAP-10GE cards (for Ethernet video transport) circuit board.
The Calix C7 Resource Arbitration Processor (RAP) is a common control plug-in card that contains the system switch matrix, real-time processor and memory, and timing source for the Calix C7 system. The RAP maintains the database of the Calix C7 system in nonvolatile memory for storage of cross-connect information and system software. The RAP card plugs into either of the two common control slots of the Calix C7 shelf (CS-A and CS-B).
The C7’s RAP-10GE cards use the same Ethernet software kernel as what’s on the E7, and the two systems will be able to automatically recognize one another on the network, making implementation go more quickly.
The 100-01435 also open up more backplane capacity on the C7. The system has always had a 200-Gbit/s redundant backplane. With older RAP cards, only 25% of the backplane could be used. Insertion of the new Ethernet cards completes the connection of particular traces that open up the additional capacity.
The RAP-10GE cards occupy one or two (for redundancy) of the C7’s three slots for “common controls.” The card can switch 150 Gbit/s of traffic, which is kept segregated from TDM traffic.
In addition to the 100-00517, 100-01930 and 100-01435, we are interested in other Calix C7 boards.
