Software Releases R24, R25.1 and R25.2

Te c h n i c a l S p e c i f i c a t i o n s

Overview
To be successful, operators must respond to market pressures and keep ahead of the competition. This is possible by offering new services, protecting the current protable revenue streams, avoiding subscriber churn with user-friendly services, and reducing operational costs. Experience also shows that service offerings are more quickly adopted when they are promoted within well dened packages. Today, the Alcatel 1000 MM E10 Next Generation Switch comes complete with an extensive range of services covering a wide array of operators and end users needs. In particular recent enhancements to the software releases allow the creation of compelling service packages that will bring more benets to the end user and sustained revenues for operators.

Release R25.1 Key Features


Available now, this release provides huge CAPEX and OPEX savings. By directly integrating SDH STM-1 interfaces, the Alcatel 1000 MM E10 takes up less space while connecting directly to an SDH network. As a result the same trafc levels can be handled on a platform with a smaller footprint. For example, when a single SDH board terminates one STM-1 link (the equivalent of 63 E1 links), one SDH-STM-1 high-density unit replaces eight E1 boards.

Alcatel 1000 MM E10 Subscriber Access Unit (CSN)


Extend the Reach of Switches and Deliver More Services to More Subscribers

Te c h n i c a l S p e c i f i c a t i o n s

The Subscriber Access Unit (CSN) of the Alcatel 1000 MM E10 has been designed for a multiservice and multimedia environment. It is based on a two-tier, concentrating, multisite, multifunction access node architecture that has been widely adopted by the telecommunications industry. The CSN efciently extends the reach of a switch to rural or high-density networks and everywhere in between. Each CSN can

connect up to 5,120 users, and can be located anywhere in the network, either collocated with the core switch or installed in proximity to remote groups of users. The concentrator units (CNE) associated with a CSN offer considerable exibility since they too can be collocated with the CSN or installed to serve remote users in groups of 64, 256 or 512.

Offer Equal Access to POTS, ISDN and ADSL Services


The CSN offers all connected users, whatever their location, equal access to POTS, ISDN and ADSL services. The two-tier architecture ensures that these subscribers are connected at the lowest possible cost. The CSN allows mixing and matching of all existing subscriber boards (POTS, ISDN BRA and ISDN PRA), as well as the ADSL subscriber board in any of its universal slots.

Fast Rollout of Broadband Services


The integration of ADSL within the CSN offers outstanding advantages:
M

CAPEX optimization minimum investment for low density ADSL areas OPEX reduction savings in spare parts, integrated Operation and Maintenance Rollout exibility rollout on demand, fast deployment Cost-effectiveness plug-to-plug compatible ADSL/POTS/ISDN boards Easy installation minimum impact on main distribution frames State-of-the-art broadband functionality full compatibility with the Alcatel ADSL portfolio

Deliver Services with an Always On Solution


Always on/dynamic ISDN (AODI) is the latest ISDN evolution. It is a networking application that uses the free ISDN D-channel capacity for packet service to maintain an always on connection between an ISDN end user and an Internet service provider (ISP). Time sensitive, low bandwidth demand services such as sending and receiving e-mails, news feeds, automated data collection, or credit card verication can use this constant virtual connection at speeds of about 9.6 kb/s. When extra bandwidth is needed AODI allows for the manual or automatic addition of one or two circuit-switched B-channels of 64 kb/s each (for a total of 128 kb/s). The D-channel is not used for data when the B-channels are opened, but it remains active for signaling. When the additional bandwidth is no longer required, or if a call is coming in, one or both B-channels are dropped, leaving the D-channel connection in place.

By implementing ISDN and AODI within their network, service providers can efciently and effectively deliver always on service with this new service comes a new revenue opportunity.

ADSL subscriber line card

The ADSL line card supports 4-line equipment and a common control logic. Each port includes its own splitter and handles both analogue POTS and broadband data trafc. Depending on the length and the quality of the line, the broadband data bit-rates supported are up to 640 kb/s from ADSL network termination (ANT) to CSN, and up to 8 Mb/s from CSN to ANT. The ADSL line card separates voice trafc from broadband data trafc before transmission of each ow on the appropriate bus in the CSN or CNE back panels. All the ADSL subscribers are connected to an
