The 10G WAN Phy Trunk Module is a single port optical trunk card used to connect a MD8000 series device to a SONET/SDH transport network. Operating at a line rate of 10 Gb/sec, this module includes an internal 10Gb/sec electrical backplane interface that is used to communicate with the MD8000 chassis’ redundant switch controller cards.
Using a midplane chassis architecture, the 10GigE LAN Trunk Module has a separate optical rear board to connect to the transport network. A single-mode fiber XFP module with SC connectors and supporting distances up to 10km, 40km, 80km is used for optical connectivity. Optical selections are compliant with SONET SR-1, IR-2, and LR-2 and ITU SDH I-64-1, S-64.2b, and P1L1-2D2 specifications, respectively.
The 10G WAN Phy Trunk Module includes a complete set of status, error, and diagnostic LEDs and counters to simplify connectivity to SONET/SDH networks.
