TruePulse would like to purchase NTK524BA and NTK529EA for the Ciena 6500 high-capacity networking Packet-Optical Platform.
The NTK524BA, HECI code WMOTAG9, is a 1xOC-192/STM-64 VT1.5/LO SR1/I64.1 Circuit Pack. Or more simply, a Short Reach 1310nm (Low Order – VT1.5 granularity) card. You may alternately know it as the Nortel NTK524BA.
The NTK529EA, HECI code WOOMAWT, is a 100G MUX Multi-Protocol 2x QSFP+/2X SFP+ Ciruit Pack. You may alternately know it as the Nortel NTK529EA.
The Ciena 6500 offers SONET/SDH applications important functionality. Existing network service provider infrastructure is heavily based on TDM transport, and NSPs will continue to require transport of TDM services during their evolution to a data-centric network. The 6500 provides all the expected SONET functions with excellent densities and flexibility. High density DS1/E1, DS3/E3, EC-1/STS-1 copper interfaces, modular and per port selectable OC-3/STM-1, STM-1e, OC-12/STM-4, OC-48/STM-16 with optional DWDM, and OC-192/STM-64 and OC-768/STM-256 interfaces with optional DWDM provide carriers with a robust service offering and the peace of mind that comes with service forecast tolerance. Per-port selectable protection schemes offer optimum shelf and capital expenditure efficiency and flexibility in the restoration schemes as well as service level agreements being offered. Unrestricted bandwidth management capabilities on the cross connect result in a more efficient use of the optical network and prevent premature overlays of equipment that result from limited grooming capabilities.
In addition to the NTK524BA and NTK529EA, TruePulse is searching for many other Ciena OME 6500 modules too. Furthermore, we are looking for modules for other Ciena optical networking platforms, such as the CoreDirector, the CoreStream, and the DN4100. Please tell us about any surplus Ciena that you have.
