Media Cross Connect Datasheet MCC Media Cross Connect™ (MCC) Product Family “Programmable and modular physical layer switching system” Applications Test Lab Automation Enterprise Network Monitoring Digital Video Distribution Wave Division Multiplexing Carrier Interoperability Labs Features Programmable port mapping - Any-port-to-any-port connectors - Remote and local monitoring of port mappings - Remote and local administration of port mappings Overview The Media Cross Connect (MCC) product family is a modular and programmable patch panel system designed especially to facilitate test automation in demanding test and simulation environments. The flexible MCC design fits nicely with many other applications including digital video distribution, enterprise networks, and media conversion with fiber optics. MCC chassis options include modular units with maximum configurations of 288, 144, and 72 ports and data rates ranging from 0 to 10 Gbps. These units mount in 9U, 5U, and 3.5U rack space, respectively. Each modular MCC chassis mounts in a standard 19” rack and accommodates any of the MCC blades in the main backplane slots. Special slots are provided to host the EM316LNXNM-MCC Network Management (NM) module and for future expansion of the MCC design. There are also standalone 1U blades with 32 and 34 ports. MCC chassis support 1+1 redundant power supplies for mission critical reliability. There are also options for either AC or DC power in the 144 or 288 chassis. The NM module provides several management options including command line, SNMP, and graphical user interface for remote or local administration of the MCC system. A local command line console may be connected to the NM serial port for an out-of-band command line interface (CLI) session. A remote management station may connect to the CLI securely through SSH or optionally through telnet. CLI access can use native or Radius server authentication for additional security. The SNMP interface supports the powerful MegaVision graphical network management system that provides a unique graphical interface for MRV devices and full IP/SNMP access to any supporting network devices. The EM316LNXNM-MCC includes MegaVisionJ, a built-in version of the graphical network manager to monitor and provision the MCC chassis directly from any network station equipped with a standard web browser. firstname.lastname@example.org Wide variety of industry standard ports - SFP (2R and 3R) (0 Gbps – 4.25 Gbps) - XFP (10 Gbps Ethernet and Fibre Channel) - T1/E1 - DS3/E3/STS-1 - Ethernet (10/100/1000 Mbps) EM316LNXNM-MCC network manager compatibility - Dedicated management module slot - Command line interface (serial, SSH, or telnet) - SNMP V1, V2, and V3 - MegaVisionJ (single sytem graphical manager) - MegaVision Pro® (full network graphical manager) - Automation with simple scripts Security - Secure Shell (SSH) - Radius authentication - SNMP V3 19” rack-mountable High-density modular design - 32 or 34 ports in 1U - 72 ports in 3.5U - 144 ports in 5U - 288 ports in 9U Hot-swap support - Blades - Power supplies - Network management module - SFP and XFP transceivers Media Cross Connect The NM module supports scripting for management automation. Scripting provides seamless integration into test labs and other constantly changing environments. The MCC blades provide the modular port configuration that allows the system to perform many functions. Any compatible ports within the chassis may be dynamically mapped together. With the appropriate blade and port configurations, the MCC may be wired once to support ever-changing environments such as test labs or model networks with programmable reconfiguration, and it can even simulate network failures and other changing conditions. In production environments, the MCC may be used to monitor remote traffic without interrupting workflow by simply mirroring an output port to another port with a management station. This multicast function may also take a single input and map to many output ports for applications like video distribution. By duplicating the signal at the physical layer, extremely high data throughputs are maintained independent of the evolving protocol standards in use today. Each MCC blade integrates a specific type of physical port and supported protocols into the system. Within the limitations of the physical devices and protocols, each of these ports may be mapped to individual ports or groups of ports anywhere in the chassis. Each port type may have different capabilities, so each MCC blade supports the industry standards applicable to the supported ports. The SFP and XFP sockets allow the MCC system to address nearly any network environment. - Single-mode - Multi-mode - Multi-rate - Single fiber bi-directional - Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) - Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) - Copper Ethernet The SFP and XFP blades support all major protocols through the full range of hot-swappable MRV transceivers. Other blades provide more specialized support with dedicated connections built into the device.
