The GW7900 series allows operators to maintain ATM service over a fully supported NGN infrastructure, maximizing performance while avoiding the customer disruption of a service replacement.
The GW7900 supports Ethernet bridging over ATM networks. This enables the transport of Ethernet traffic over existing ATM networks at wire-speed. Dual tagged VLANs are supported.
The GW7900 Series has several interface options with either a dual/quad OC-3/STM-1 WAN interface or a single OC-12/STM-4 interface.
High availability can be provided through two separate Gigabit Ethernet links. The GW7900 Gateways are rack-mountable and incorporate integral AC or DC power supplies for datacenter environments. Optionally, dual power supplies can be supported.
The GW7900 can be used together with optical splitters to capture STM-1 ATM data. The data can be encapsulated in IP/Ethernet and forwarded to a server for decoding, analysis and storage. The device can be configured to capture all traffic on the links, or it can identify and capture specific traffic types only.
