5970 POTS Splitter with LifeLine

Overview

The 5970 Series POTS Splitter is a high density, modular solution for ADSL2+ and VDSL2 applications. The shelves are available in 4U and 8U configurations offering 504 and 1008 ports respectively in 72-port increments to match with the highest density ADSL2+ 72-port MxK cards.

The 5970 Series shelves sit between the subscriber lines and the CO-serving equipment. Also designed for remote cabinets, the 5970 allows customers to boost capacity without consuming excessive rack space. The front/back connections create a clean cable management solution. All DSL connections are at the front of the shelf and all POTS and LINE interfaces at the rear. Separating DSL and voice connections significantly reduces video-impairing crosstalk. The 5970 Series splitters are environmentally hardened for demanding locations. The backplane contains make-before-break connectors from the outside plant tip and ring to the POTS tip and ring, respectively, to maintain “LIFE LINE” service when a line card is removed from the chassis.
