We're in the process of either upgrading from an OC12 to an OC48 or adding a secondary OC12. Can anyone tell me any additional considerations I need to take into account besides card space and vt matrix space? I'm just trying to ensure I cover all of my bases.
1. Are you considering the MRC card or do you have fixed OC48? Check your cross connect cards. Older XC cards & some fixed optics cards require OC48 cards in high-speed slots. XC10G (and newer XCs) provide support for any-slot OC48.
2. Check you fiber losses and compare against the OC48 card specs.
3. What is the optical architecture and current VT usage? If you are worried about VT consumption, try to aggregate VT cross connects into as few STS as possible.
In general, one OC48 is much better use of slot real estate vs multiple lower rate cards.
