TruePulse would like to acquire NT8E01QW and NT8E01VG for the Nortel S/DMS TransportNode OC-48 NE.  This system is alternately called the FDN2400, or the Classic OC-48, Optera, MOR or MOR Plus.  You may possibly know these modules as the Ciena NT8E01QW and Ciena NT8E01VG.

The NT8E01QW, HECI code SN1TAB0, is OC-48 long reach 1557nm ring transmit interface.  The NT8E01QW circuit pack supports OC-3, STS-12, or OC-12 interfaces in all four quadrants of an OC-48 terminal shelf.  It is to be used in conjunction with OC-48 extended long-reach receive interfaces (NT8E02C) or extended long-reach high-jitter tolerant receive interfaces (NT8E02D).  Release 16 and later software has enhanced matched-node capabilities for path defect detection, protection switching, and provisioning. These enhancements are available only if the ADM node is equipped with two NT8E01LW/NT8E01PW/NT8E01QW/NT8E01TW/NT8E01UW circuit packs.

The N8E01VG, HECI code SNT3KUD, is an OC-48 DM-DWDM 1560.61nm 1:N transmit interface. It is recommended that you reserve the 1541.35, 1542.94, and 1560.61nm wavelengths for spare circuit packs.

In addition to the NT8E01QW and NT8E01VG, TruePulse would like to acquire many other modules for the Nortel S/DMS TransportNode OC-48 NE.  We are also interested in modules from other Nortel optical transport platforms, including the FD-565, the OME 6500, and the OM 3500.

Please send us an email to let us know about surplus Nortel optical transport equipment that you have available.
