Galazar Offers Silicon for Micro-MSPPs

Galazar Networks has expanded its portfolio of multi-service access silicon with the introduction of CompactNode and MicroNode SONET/SDH networking solutions suited for carrier grade access and aggregation networks demanding Ethernet services and advanced SONET/SDH networking.

MicroNode includes all of the elements necessary for implementing an OC-3/STM-1 Network Element with Ethernet and PDH clients including; direct hot- pluggable SFP interfaces, full HO/LO cross-connect, full HO/LO GFP/VCAT/LCAS capability, tri-mode Ethernet MACs with rate control, Stratum-3 CSU, DS1/E1 interfaces, and a Telecom Bus for PDH expansion.

CompactNode extends these capabilities to enable an OC-12/STM-4 Network Element with the same client interfaces plus a protected OC-3/STM-1 tributary interface. The hot-pluggable SFP interfaces also support multi-rate operation (155 Mbps and 622 Mbps).

Galazar includes device management software, supporting advanced hardware abstraction capabilities, commonly used network equipment features, and extensive troubleshooting tools.

CompactNode and MicroNode are in production and shipping in volume.
