Designed for Carrier Ethernet (MEF), Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) and Mobile Backhaul applications, Watson is a highly convenient and cost effective solution for fiber networks.
The Watson Fiber Plug-in features 12 SFP slots for SM or MM Gigabit Ethernet optical SFP modules. It is designed for rack-based installations and has the same form factor as other Schmidís Watson Plug-ins. The Watson Fiber Plug-in can share subracks with other Watson products from already existing points of presence currently used for SHDSL services. As demarcation point Schmid offers the Watson Fiber EAD, an advanced Ethernet Access Device.
All Watson fiber products provides high performance wire speed Gigabit Ethernet switching on all ports with sophisticated Carrier Ethernet (MEF) functionality for traffic management and differentiated services.
High throughput, high flexibility and advanced functionality make the Watson Solution the right choice for demanding Carrier Ethernet applications over fiber.
