AK5000 Point†to Multipoint Ethernet Platform
|The Metro Ethernet compliant Aktino AK5000 point-to- multipoint product family enables the transport of†high-quality, high-bandwidth Carrier Ethernet services over bonded copper pairs. The†AK5000 point-to-multipoint line cards bond together 2 to†8 copper pairs creating a symmetrical high-bandwidth link capable of delivering carrier-grade services throughout their networks (12 Kft/ 3.7 Km) and beyond.This environmentally hardened unit is capable of supporting line powering over the same copper pairs that carry the data.
The AK5000†product family consists of the AK5000 point-to-multipoint product, which consists of the AK500S shelf, line cards and management/uplink cards and the AK500†compact units.† Environmentally hardened for any deployment scenario, this pay as you grow system accommodates up to 16 line cards.† When used with the AK500 Compact Remote Unit, the Carrier Ethernet†AK5000 facilitates deployment in remote enterprise locations where space is at a premium.
MEF†& Industry Standards Compliant
The AK5000 is a standards-based product family that provides superior performance and reliability compared to any other multi-pair copper products on the market. Along with meeting copper loop standards such as ANSI T1.417, which enables the AK5000 Ethernet services to co-exist with other services in a binder, the products are compliant with IEEE 802.3ah EFM, IEEE 802.1/802.3 LAN LAN protocol standards and is Metro Ethernet Forum MEF9/MEF14 certified.†
The Industry's Only Programmable Asymmetric Bandwidth Feature
As providers realize that backhaul traffic can be asymmetric by as much as 10:1 (downstream:upstream) and as they watch cable MSOs make significant inroads into the SMB market, they are turning to solutions like Aktino’s for help. †Aktino is the only bonded copper solution that can provide up to 60 Mbps of carrier class bandwidth either symmetrically or asymmetrically.† Also, because Aktino’s Asymmetric Bandwidth feature is programmable, providers can tailor the allocated down and upstream bandwidth to their individual applications† ensuring†efficient use of precious bandwidth.
New Level of Reliability
The AK5000†was designed to dynamically compensate for individual copper pair failures.† If a copper pair fails, the AK5000†proactively and automatically adjusts the other copper pair margins to compensate for the loss.† This feature allows any pair to protect all the pairs in a bonded group without the need to double the number of copper pairs used.† The result is†fiber-like reliability that in many cases meets and exceeds fiber service level agreements (SLAs).
