The MS8000 includes 28 and 52-port 1/2.5/10 Gbit/s Ethernet ports designed for fiber broadband networks to deliver data, voice and video services.
The MS8000 is a hybrid architecture, including both a switch ASIC for up to wire-speed performance and a network processor (NPU) for advanced service features and unique troubleshooting tools.
Built in a small form factor with unique front to side airflow, the MS8000 is a reliable platform for service delivery over many years. All connectors in the front provides easy access. With up to 52 ports the MS8000 enables high density fiber to the home/business installations.
The MS8000 runs Waystream iBOS operating system, a feature rich and reliable software that provide advanced service features such as ingress/egress shaping with Weighted Fair Queuing and quality measurement and service assurance analysis of multicast TV. The switch also provides streaming telemetry with direct integration to popular Influx time series database. Various layer 2 features support public and private networks, wholesale and redundant networking for building highly available FTTx networks for business and residential users. As of iBOS 7.7.5 the platform also supports stacking for network management. The stacking feature in iBOS allows up to eight switches to be grouped together into a switch-complex that is managed by a single headnode. This creates a single logical switch from a network management point of view. The participating switches need to be connected to each other, but are not required to be in the same physical location
The 2.5Gbit/s link-speed is standardized by IEEE for use with Category 5e or better cabling. A copper-SFP is required.
The MS8000 series is available in the following models:
AC units has one 110-240VAC power input connector in the front.
Uplink: 4 x 10 GE (SFP+) ports. Downlink: 24 x 1/2.5/10 GE (SFP+) ports. Front-to-side cooling. All connectors in the front with extra DC power inlet in the rear for redundant power feeds.
