ASX4000Mused marconi

The used Marconi -Fore ASX4000M multiservice switch router is designed specifically to meet the demanding needs of Post, Telephone, and Telegraph (PTT) agencies, local exchange carriers (LECs), interexchange carriers (IXCs), and emerging service providers as they build or enhance their networks for next-generation IP services. It’s also an ideal choice for large enterprise WANs. Based on the award winning ASX4000 platform, a used ASX4000M provides a reduced footprint and increased port densities for use by service providers at the service delivery edge of the network.

A scalable, high-performance 40 Gbps switch router, a used ASX4000M supports a wide range of interfaces from discrete DS-1/E1 to OC-48c/STM-16c. The ASX4000M uses the ASX4000 card cage, fabrics, switch control processors (SCPs), software, and port cards. And with the Network Module Carrier Card (NMC), a used ASX4000M can re-use all Series E and select Series D ASX/TNX network modules.

A used ASX4000M is ideal for use as an edge aggregation point for low-speed multiservice connections, including ATM, Frame Relay, CEM, and Ethernet. It also can function as a mid-size core supporting OC-3c/STM-1c (ATM and packet over SONET [POS]), OC-12c/STM-4c (ATM and POS), and OC-48c/STM-16c (ATM and POS) interfaces. Additionally, the ASX4000M is perfectly suited to deployment in large Enterprise WANs. Any combination of service interfaces and higher-speed uplinks can be supported.

Service providers are constantly faced with pressure to reduce costs while offering traditional and next-generation services. The flexible and scalable architecture of the used ASX4000M enables service providers to utilize the same platform for direct customer traffic termination, aggregation of digital subscriber line access multiplexer (DSLAM) and Frame Relay traffic, and core applications.
Marconi offers high-density interfaces, including channelized and unchannelized optical port cards, channelized electrical interfaces, and discrete electrical interfaces. And with the IP Routing and Forwarding (IPR) port card, a used ASX4000M can operate as an MPLS gateway device, bridging the gap between the current multiservice network and future IP/MPLS networks.
