Demands on access networks continue to accelerate, and technology advances change and evolves 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’s 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’s MXK-F™ ultra high-capacity fiber-optimized aggregation platform is the latest cost-effective addition to its world-renowned MXK™ portfolio.
The MXK-F™ chassis architecture is designed around a dual star design with redundant ultra high-speed links to each subscriber line card slot for future-proof support of today’s and tomorrow’s bandwidth-hungry fiber-based subscriber services. Also MXK-F™ management control and aggregation switch fabric functions reside on two separate cards, each of which can be equipped in a redundant configuration; MCs (Management Cards) and FC (Fabric Cards). Lastly, a fully-distributed database and parallel firmware loading enable simple fast upgrades.
With a solid, wide foundation to build upon, MXK-F™ is well-suited as high-density fiber-based service platform to cost-effectively deliver ITU-T G.984 GPON, IEEE 802.3-2008 1 and 10Gb/s Active Ethernet, ITU-T G.987 XGPON1, ITU-T G.989 NGPON2, and other advanced fiber-based services for residential triple play and high-bandwidth business services over any FTTx architecture.
MXK-F1421 is designed to be fully-compliant to meet the ETSI EN 300 standard for indoor cabinets and contains 16-access multi-service subscriber slots, and 2-network facing slots. MXK-F1421 can be mounted directly into a 21″ wide rack, and into a 23″ rack with adapter brackets. The chassis is equipped with a cable management tray, easy fan access, and rear-powered redundant power feeds.
MXK-F1419 is also designed to be fully-compliant to meet the ETSI EN 300 standard for indoor cabinets and contains 14-access multi-service subscriber slots, and 2-network facing slots. MXK-F1419 can be mounted directly into a 19″ wide rack. The chassis is equipped with a cable management tray, easy fan access, and rear-powered redundant power feeds.
Rounding out the MXK-F™ product line is the MXK-F219. With its MXK-F14xx lineage, it has exactly the same high-capacity backplane and high-speed virtues found in its larger siblings – except on a 2U 19″ form factor.
A favorite in enterprise, hospitality, and academic applications, MXK-F219 contains 2-access multi-service subscriber slots, 2-network facing slots, and supports the exact same line cards as the MXK-F14xx.
That means whether being deployed by an enterprise IT director, or by a service provider servicing a niche market, MXK-219, like all members of the MXK-F™ family, provides plenty of future-proof capability for 1G to 40G Active Ethernet, as well as GPON, XGPON1, XGSPON, and NGPON2 service requirements, and future undefined services.
