MX-160-16P 1U DSLAM/MDU ONU: MX-160-16P


The DZS MX-160-16P provides next generation VDSL2 DSLAM/MDU ONU features in a compact, hardened form-factor that makes it easy and cost-effective to deliver uncompromised triple play services throughout serving area. Models are available with 16 VDSL2 30a Ports. This MX family product is designed for easy configuration and management via built-in Web Graphical Interface. Its compact design allows easy deployment in remote cabinets and space constrained central offices. The MX-160-16P offers two Fast/Gigabit Ethernet uplink interfaces that can be configured as linear, ring, or aggregated links. DZS’ MX-160-16P VDSL2 solution offers full-rate VDSL2 30a performance for packet-based service delivery. This low-power, fully programmable, high performance solution enables service providers to cost-effectively generate additional revenue through their triple-play offering, including the different iterations of video services emerging in the marketplace. As an end-to-end solution, DZS offers VDSL2 CPE and CO products to offer high-speed, long reach and low cost solutions for multi-tenant and multi-dwelling unit (MxU), remote terminal and CO deployments.

Ease of Management

MX-160-16P provides simple yet powerful management facility via embedded Web GUI along with complete NMS integration.

Triple Play Services

MX-160-16P includes high-performance packet switching with advanced IP capabilities to deliver secure, reliable, and efficient voice, data, and video services. Now service providers can offer compelling bundles of multi-line voice, high-speed Internet access, and multi-set IP video (including HDTV) over their existing copper infrastructure. MX-160-16P is defined by its ease of use and packet processing/switching capability to support rich triple-play services on each subscriber port.

Optical or Copper Transport

MX-160-16P provides FE/GE SFP-based uplink ports, supporting both copper and fiber, to provide simple cost-effective transport. The FastE/GigE ports allow point-to-point, link aggregation, and daisy-chained linear or ring deployments, and on rings the MX-160-16P provides standards-based EAPS support.

End-to-End Access Management

The easy-to-use DZS Management System (ZMS) provides OSMINE-certified management and provisioning across the access network, from CPE to the Central Office. The MX-160-16P is fully remote managed, allowing carriers to reduce service turn-up intervals, reduce truck rolls, and ultimately, improve customer service.
