The Orion IPL8021MX is a member of Tera-Pass’ product line intended for the optical infrastructure required to support cellular traffic. Orion IPL8021MX is optimized for Mobile Front-Haul (MFH) networks.
Orion IPL8021MX OTN processors implement the novel ITU-T SG15 Q.11 Sup 56 Section 8 CPRIm multiplexing method for the transport of CPRI signals over OTN bearers. This scheme optimizes the transport of CPRI (Common Public Radio Interface) signals between RRH (Remote Radio Head) antennas and centralized BBU (Base Band Unit) sites. The IPL8021MX includes optional Forward Error Correction (FEC) and supports CPRI signals Option 3, Option 4 and Option 5.
An Orion IPL8021MX OTN processor combines up to 6 CPRI-3/4/5 signals into 2 CPRIm aggregates that are then synchronously mapped into 2 OPU2r containers and are presented to 2 line ports as either 12.6Gbps OTU2r or 11.8Gbps OTU2r No FEC signals.
