ZTEs Multi-Service Access Network Solution

Preface
Facing increased competition from wireless telecommunication operators, providers of cable television networks and large Internet content providers with strong brands and deep pockets, the fixed-line operators are now searching for new revenue streams from the increasingly popular triple or quadruple play bundled package of IPTV, voice calls and ultra-high-speed broadband Internet access. Next-generation networks (NGN) herald the shift from a "one network, one service" approach, to the delivery of many services over a single network. Telecom field has entered the period of transition with the theme of convergence. Convergence is also ongoing at the access layer. One integrated access platform for all kinds of access can realize unified plan, unified construction, unified service provision and unified maintenance so that it will greatly decrease both the CAPEX and the OPEX. As a mainstream provider of MSAN solution and products in the world, ZTEs MSAN products are constantly developing, catering to the fast development of telecommunications. Aggregating multiple technologies into a single platform, ZTEs MSAN is very flexible in solution and service provision. At subscriber access side, ZTEs MSAN can provide both legacy and emerging broadband access based on cooper or fiber; at upper layer side, it can adapt to PTSN or NGN for voice provision, and it can adapt to ATM or IP for data service. For the service provision, its one triple-play ready platform. ZTEs MSAN also supports smooth evolution from PSTN to NGN and IMS to protect operators investment.

Network Solution
As an integrated access platform, ZTEs MSAN supports both V5 and H.248 mode for voice solution and both ATM and IP uplink for data solution. The MSAN can perfectly support smooth migration from PSTN to NGN and IMS. The MSAN can be used in different network scenarios.

ZTES MSAN solution for PSTN&NGN

2.1

MSAN Solution for PSTN


For the TDM voice service, The MSAN connects to PSTN network via V5 interface. The access network structure can be a traditional optical line terminal (OLT)-optical network unit (ONU) link or an ONU with a direct connection to the PSTN. In the OLT-ONU structure, the built-in MSTP will be used for service transmission and the ONU can be deployed anywhere to realize FTTx because of the flexible networking capability of the built-in MSTP.

2.2

MSAN Solution for NGN


To provide NGN IP-based voice services, voice is converted from TDM to IP format at the MSAN. ZTE provides ZXMSG5200/ZXMSG5600 access gateway products to meet different capacity requirements. ZXMSG5200 is a medium capacity AG with 1,856 lines. ZXMSG5600 is a large capacity AG with 25,344 lines. It can be used for local subscribers access and remote access through built-in MSTP to extend NGN to regions where the metro network has no coverage yet.

MSAN as MDU in FTTx Solution


Figure 2 MSAN as MDU in FTTx solution

In the FTTB/FTTC solution requires medium and small capacity MDU which has Multiservice access capabilities. ZXMSG 5200 can support EPON/GPON uplink working as MDU in FTTB/FTTC solution.

2.4

MSAN as VGW in IMS solution


ZXMSG 5200/5600 can be accessed to AGCF network element through P1(H.248) interface when the core network accomplish IMS evolution. Thanks to the immature of the AGCF standard, most of IMS network can not support AGCF network element. ZXMSG 5200/5600 also can be accessed to P-CSCF network element directly through Gm (IMS SIP) interface.

MSAN upgraded to access gateway

3.1

OLT Upgraded to ZXMSG5600


The upgrade of an OLT to a ZXMSG5600 access gateway is very simple. VoIP media processing cards need to be added to realize TDM-to-IP voice conversion; the software of main control cards needs to be upgraded to implement H.248/MGCP and to realize connection with NGN. As the OLT upgrade solution does not need to change any of the hardware or software of ONU nodes, it requires less workload and has less impact on the network.

3.2

ONU Upgraded to ZXMSG5200


An ONU can also be easily upgraded to a ZXMSG5200 in the same way as an OLT upgrade. Compared with the OLT upgrade solution, the ONU upgrade solution can realize end-toend VoIP, simplifying the network structure. ZTEs MSAN can support NGN&PSTN dual-homing function, so that the outdated old PSTN network can work as lifeline for NGN network.

Multiple Access Platform


As an integrated access platform, ZTEs MSAN can support legacy service access and emerging different broadband access technologies. To make full use of the widely deployed copper lines potential capabilities, the operators have great expectations on VDSL2 which combines the advantages of VDSL and

ADSL2+ with the symmetrical bandwidth of up to 100 Mbps within 1000 feet. VDSL2 is supported by the MSAN. Higher bandwidth requirement for multiple play and advantages of the technology itself has accelerated the rolling out of fiber networks closer to homes and offices. The MSAN has integrated EPON/GPON into the platform which can be used for the customers who have extra high bandwidth requirement or it can be used as uplink in the network migration.

Highlights of ZTEs MSAN Solution


True IP core, full GE/10GE architecture Based on the advanced IP+TDM dual-bus architecture, ZTEs MSAN processes each service with the most appropriate technology, and it guarantees enough bandwidth for each subscriber based on the architecture of GE/10GE bandwidth to each slot. Powerful access provisioning capability The MSAN not only supports legacy narrowband access, but also supports emerging broadband access, such as copper-based xDSL access, fiber-based xPON access, FE/GE LAN access etc. VDSL2 and EPON/GPON are supported. Flexible adaptation to upper layer network The MSAN can connect to PTSN and NGN network for voice service, and can connect to ATM or IP network for data service. Smooth migration in the network evolution The MSAN can support smooth migration from PSTN to NGN and IMS to protect the operators investment. Both OLT and ONU in the PSTN network can migrate to access gateway in the NGN network. Perfect IPTV service support Fully PWE3 supported The MSAN with a highly integrated Circuit Emulation Services (CES) module, enables circuit emulation functionality in multi-service equipment. It provides both structured and unstructured circuit emulation services (CES) for both T1 and E1 streams across a packet network based on Ethernet technology. The circuit emulation features in MSAN comply with the relevant standards and support for protocols such as SAToP (RFC4553) and CESoPSN (RFC5086), developed by the IETF's PWE3 working group. The other is for N*64kbps user data DDN transferring transparently between two MSANs over PSN. In this mode, pairs of N*64kbps can communicate through PSN. MSAN directly offers N*64 K DDN ports to users. Service aware platform based on QoS mechanism The MSAN can give differentiated service to different service or different customers based on the QoS mechanism. Series products for different application
