TruePulse is looking to purchase Nortel Optera NTLW19AB and NTLW19CA modules. Both modules are part of Nortel’s Optera Metro 5100/5200 product family.
Manufacturing support has long been discontinued, but OM5100 and OM5200 networks continue to operate around the world. As you decommission yours, we are looking to purchase some of the modules. Currently, we are looking to purchase:
The NTLW19AB, HECI code WMTRXG0, is a 10G/OC-192/STM-64 DWDM OTR (optical transponder) for Band 1 Channel 2.
The NTLW19CA, HECI code WMTRXM0, is a 10G/OC-192/STM-64 DWDM OTR (optical transponder) for Band 3 Channel 1.
As the Nortel optical transport product line was sold to Ciena, these boards may also be known as the Ciena NTLW19AB and Ciena NTLW19CA.
The 5100/5200 platform supports the transparent transport of optical wavelength-based services in their native format, extending the optical connectivity from metro core to metro edge, including customer premises. Common client and line interface cards are used for the Optical Metro 5100 and 5200 which provides simple interworking, low sparing requirements and overall operational savings. In order to benefit from maximum wavelength usage, several sub rate multiplexing interfaces combine different services onto a single 2.5-Gbps or 10-Gbps wavelength in order to offer low cost per service.
In addition to the NTLW19AB or NTLW19CA modules available, we are interested in other Nortel OM5200 modules too. We are also interested in most Nortel platforms, including, the VSE, the S/DMS TransportNode OC-48 NE, the OM 6500 and the OC-48 Lite. Please email us about any surplus Nortel central office equipment that you have available.
