WaveReady Shelf, 8U, 700 W Cooling Capacity, 14-slot Optical Platform


The WaveReady® DMS-3500FSE05 is a fan-cooled optical provisioning platform targeted for metro access/edge and inter-office fiber (IOF) applications. It accommodates up to 13 WaveReady modules managed by a WaveReady system controller in slot C.

The platform supports any mix of WaveReady-powered modules including high-power multirate transponders, muxponders, and single channel and multichannel DWDM amplifiers up to a total power draw of 700 W. It also supports passive one-, four-, and eight- channel DWDM and CWDM cassettes.

The platform provides power, cooling, and a communications bus for all modules in the shelf. The communications module handles monitoring, management, and configuration of each module in the shelf. This design reduces installation time for individual WaveReady modules.

External interfaces include a standard four-position terminal block, Ethernet through an RJ45 connector on a communications module, RS232 through a D-subminiature connector on a communication module, and alarms and input sense through two 25-pin D-subminiature connectors located on the front of the shelf.  The WaveReady communications module allows local and remote management through a DB-9/RS232 port on the front panel, three RJ45, and one OSC Ethernet connectors. Both TL1 and SNMP-based management are supported.

The platform is configured for installation in 19 or 23 inch or ETSI 300 mm telecommunication racks.
