SPEED-CARRIER 5U - 16 slot universal system

SPEED-CARRIER 5U - 16 slot universal system

Brocade QLogic

The SPEED-CARRIER with its 5U size is one of the most versatile and flexible 19“ chassis available in today‘s telecommunication market. An outstanding port density can be achieved by integrating up to 16 system and management module in one chassis. The SPEED-CARRIER 5U supports all types of SPEED transponder modules up to 2.5 Gbps or 10 Gbps, WDM units, TDM modules and EDFA as well as RAMAN amplifiers. The clever and future-proof concept is already designed for upcoming high-speed applications without any additional costs. Redundant power supplies for 230 V AC, 24 V DC and 48 V DC are  available in various power classes and can also be used in mixed operations. An intelligent and redundant on-demand cooling system is provided which locates heat sources for selective cooling. This feature extends the life-time of a cooling module and thus provides stability for the entire platform. The SPEED-CARRIER 5U features a redundant on-demand cooling system which selectivity cools only modules with high temperatures. This extends other chassis inside the same rack. Therefore the required space is identical to those of a 3U system. A management connection can be realized by a standard copper interface (RJ45) or a switched optical SFP port. Furthermore management information – even of 3rd party systems – can be transmitted to a central location by using a separate wavelength.
