Nortel / Ciena 5200 reference system in the MMX repair lab


This system is still widley used by service providers and also by banking and financial organisations for their own private networks. This was primarily due to the secure encryption features of the system. MMX routinely repairs all of the cards for this system including 2.5 Gbps and 10 Gbps tuneable transponder cards. In this system pluggable transceiver is not used, this part is fixed within the card. In addition to the reference system shown MMX has a range of optical test instruments capable of producing appropriate 10 Gbps signal in order to traffic test every card for functionality before return to customer. Custom test procedures specific to client requirements also available upon request.
