Zhone IPD4000E Video Ready, High-capacity Ethernet-based IP Broadband Loop Carrier for Central Office or Remote Terminal DSL deployments

  IPD 4000E Broadband Loop Carrier (BLC)

Zhone's IPD4000E Broadband Loop Carrier (BLC) provides a high capacity, native IP Ethernet platform for the feature rich multi-service access multiplexer modules in the IPD family. It is a smaller and more compact version than the IPD12000E chassis, and is ideally suited for smaller central office or remote site applications requiring up 192 subscriber lines. The IPD4000E is engineered for efficient, high-speed IP data transport in a compact, fault-tolerant chassis. Supporting high-density Active Ethernet, ADSL2+, SHDSL, extended-rate SHDSL.bis, and T1/E1 access modules, the Ethernet-based IPD4000E is the optimal line aggregation platform for today's advanced IP-based access networks. Incumbents, Competitive Operators, and Internet Service Providers are able to cost-effectively offer the full range of today's advanced IP-based services, such as high-speed broadband Internet and IP video. Most importantly, these services can be delivered over a pure IP network without a dependency on ATM. The IPD4000E features a high capacity backplane, delivering up to 2 Gbps throughput to each of the 4 access slots, and up to 8 Gbps upstream from a single Broadband Services Switch 8000 uplink cards. Dual 50-pin, RJ-21 connectors are provided for every access slot so that the chassis can support higher port density modules in any slot. High port density modules include a 48-port ADSL2+, a 48-port SHDSL.bis, and 24-port, 4-wire T1 and E1 modules. For mission-critical, high speed data applications, the IPD4000E offers a survivable network topology by means of Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching (EAPS) rings.

Managing all of these high-speed services could not be simpler with the availability of a full range of local and remote management options, including an integrated Web GUI, SNMP, and Command Line Interface (CLI). All of the Access Modules offer simple, 'Plug & Play' operation, with the system configuring each port automatically and without intervention. When more sophisticated bandwidth management functionality is desired, the IPD supports Zhone's complete Multi-media Traffic Management (MTM) feature set, giving system operators the ability to prioritize traffic based on DSCP, IP address ranges, MAC address ranges, and VLAN ranges. Rate limiting features and 802.1p priority also ensure that specific applications are given appropriate priority and bandwidth allocation throughout the system, while marking packets for appropriate VLAN and QoS management by upstream network devices.


  • DSL the Easy Way provides true 'Plug & Play', loop-bonded operation with no configuration required
  • Compact system with 4 line card slots (up to 192 lines)
  • High bandwidth, full duplex 8-GigE uplink and 8-GigE backplane capacities
  • Choice of T1, E1, ADSL2+, SHDSL/SHDSL.bis, and Active Ethernet, hot-swappable, access modules
  • Supports T1/E1 and SHDSL/SHDSL.bis loop bonding for high-capacity, symmetric business-class services
  • Survivable network topology options based on RFC3619 EAPS rings
  • Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF 9/14) Certified for EVPL and E-LAN Services
  • Full range of in-band / out-of-band management options via Web GUI, SNMP and CLI
  • Redundant -48V DC or AC Power (with AC to DC power converter)
  • Compact NEBS compliant chassis is only 4 Rack Units high
  • Variable mounting options for flexible installations in 19" or 23" equipment racks

The IPD4000E supports a single BSX8000-5 (Broadband Switch Modules ) uplink card. The BSX8000 switch card supports four (4) Gigabit uplink ports, and has provisions for an optional MIM (Micro Interface Module), allowing the IPD to integrate easily into a variety of network designs. A variety of MIM types are available, including: 10/100 Ethernet; 100 Mbps fiber; 2 x T1/E1; 4 x T1/E1; and either 2- or 4- Gigabit Ethernet ports using either copper or fiber Small Form Factor Pluggable modules.

For installation flexibility, the IPD4000E is only 4-rack units high, and has removable mounting brackets that can be placed in increments of 1.45 up to 9.28 from the front of the chassis, allowing for multiple installation options in either 19" or 23" equipment racks.
