TruePulse is looking to purchase Nortel Optera NTLW04AA module. This module is 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 NTLW04AA, HECI code WMUCAAA, is an OCLD, 2.5G, Band 1 Channel 1 for a Nortel’s Optera Metro 5100/5200
As the Nortel optical transport product line was sold to Ciena, this board may also be known as the Ciena NTLW04AA.
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 Optera NTLW04AA module, please let us know if you have any other Nortel OM5200 modules available. We are also interested in other Ciena/Nortel optical platforms, including the OME 6500, the DMS-100, the OM 3500 and the CoreStream. Please tell us about any surplus Nortel central office equipment that you have available.
