Giga-AccessEtherLinX-II Series - Optical Ethernet Access Device
The Giga-AccessEtherLinX-II enables service providers to offer differentiated “Transparent LAN” services to multi-tenant building and business customers without the need for costly remote routers. Residing at the customer premises, the Giga-AccessEtherLinX-II provides a VLAN-based, Layer 2 entry point to the last mile fiber network to support trunking, differentiating and separating customer traffic. Featuring SNMP management with per-port 802.1Q VLAN, 802.1p QoS, traffic prioritization, bandwidth control and multicast pruning/snooping (using IGMP v1, v2), the Giga-AccessEtherLinX-II is perfect for a wide range of Fiber-to-the-Home, Fiber-to-the-Curb and Fiber-to-the-Business (FTTx) services, and is an ideal solution for delivering Ethernet-based services to customers quickly and cost effectively. Designed with a small footprint, the Giga-AccessEtherLinX-II facilitates easy installation inside the premises. It features four 10/100/1000 twisted pair Ethernet downlink ports (for connecting users/LANs), with either a 1000Base-FX fiber or SFP uplink port, and is powered from an internal AC or DC power supply.
The Giga-AccessEtherLinX-II accepts traffic containing VLAN tags on the Uplink port and directs that traffic to the twisted pair downlink ports based on the VLAN ID. In addition to assigning 802.1Q VLAN-tags on a per-port basis, users can also “Qualify” the different VLAN TAGS to assign based on the DiffServ or PRI value of the incoming frame. Traffic priority for each port is supported with a hi/low prioritization queues. The Giga-AccessEtherLinX-II includes per port bi-directional bandwidth control, and supports IGMP multicast pruning which ensures only the necessary amount of IP multicast packets are bridged.
