Typical Application, Click to Enlarge
The Loop-O9500 SDH/SONET IMAP (Integrated Multi-Services Access Platform) is an economical STM-1/4 (OC-3/12) access multiplexer designed to provide integrated access to STM-1/4 (OC-3/12) optical lines through either a non-blocking VC11/VC12/VC3/VC4 cross-connect with HS modules or through an additional non-blocking DS0 cross-connect fabric with LS modules.
The 6U shelf supports:
- 4 HS tributary module slots
- 6 LS tributary module slots
With up to 4 aggregate optical STM-1/4 (OC-3/12) or 4 aggregate electrical STM-1/OC-3 line interfaces, the Loop-O9500 SDH/SONET IMAP offers service providers a versatile protection scheme including SNCP(UPSR) and MSP(1+1) protection for both ring and linear network topology. The O9500 can work with the Loop-O9100 and Loop-O9400 in the same topology.
The non-blocking VC11/VC12/VC3/VC4 cross-connect capability on High Speed (HS) is up to 20 VC4.The HS tributary modules include optical STM-1/4 (OC-3/12), E3/T3, E1/T1 interfaces and Fast Ethernet over STM-1/4 (OC-3/12). Fast Ethernet signals are mapped onto STM payload through standard techniques GFP, LAPS, VCAT, LCAS, and non-LCAS. These HS modules are identical to those used in the rack version of the Loop-O9400.
The uplink non-blocking DS0 cross-connect to HS is up to 21 E1 or 28 T1. The non-blocking DS0 cross-connect capability on Low Speed (LS) is up to 768 DS0. Through a full non-blocking DS0 cross-connect and together can act as a mini DACS. The modules include variety of TDM, IP, and voice interfaces detailed on next page. All LS modules are identical to those used in rack version of the Loop-AM3440.
All interfaces are fully compliant with the relevant ETSI standards and ITU recommendations. The O9500 SDH/SONET IMAP provides full Operation, Administration, Maintenance and Provisioning (OAM&P) functionality.
Users can easily operate the O9500 locally or remotely for centralized management with LoopView (EMS) and Loop-iNMS (integrated NMS).

- Voice Pass-through with Loop Products
- A question about pass through voice DS-0 circuits was recently raised. Loop product mapping provides a choice of "d" for data or "v" for voice to be designated for each DS-0. FXS, FXO and E&M circuits must all be set to "v" for voice. If a DS-0 carrying voice passes in and out of a T1 as a pass through, must this be set to "v" for voice? The answer is "yes". See this paper for details on setting a pass through DS-0 to "v" for voice and for verifying the setting. Download the note in PDF format.
