MXK Fabric Cards: MXK-FC-AETG8, MXK-FC-AEFG2-AETG8
Demands on access networks continue to accelerate, and technology advances change and evolve at light speed to cope with this growth. To build a platform with more than 10-years reach requires a networking innovator with extraordinary vision, proven bench strength and experience, and of course, exceptional technology to keep pace.
With over 1,000 global customers deploying DZS’ world-class solutions for their service provider and enterprise networks, in some of the harshest and most demanding environments in the industry in its pedigree, DZS’ MXK-F™ ultra-high-capacity fiber-optimized aggregation platform is the latest cost-effective addition to its world renowned MXK™ portfolio.
Exceptional capability on the access service side of the MXK-F™ architecture requires matching capability on the network-facing uplinks. MXK-F™ Fabric Cards provide efficient, reliable, and highly-available data path aggregation solution for flows destined for the Cloud. The MXK-FC-AETG8 Fabric Card provides eight multi-purpose active Ethernet uplink ports that can support either 1G SFP or 10G SFP+ fiber transceivers, and can be operated in either uplink or intra-link modes. Similarly, in addition to eight active Ethernet 10G SFP+ ports, the MXK-FC-AEFG2-AETG8 Fabric Card also provides two 40G QSFP+ active Ethernet uplink ports.
Additionally, MXK-F™ Fabric Cards provide full card and network redundancy by supporting an active card and backup standby in the same chassis. If a card or network failover occurs, the standby card will take over instantly. And for additional network resiliency, these cards support both cross-card and intra-link aggregation, as well as the EAPS ring protocol.View printable version
