Access Aggregation

Our MSAN platform is able to handle aggregation of all network traffic using Aggregator MSANs (AMSAN) and the Fibre MSANs (FMSAN). Aggregating traffic in the access and metro network dramatically reduces cost and complexity in the core of the network. Both incumbent and new service providers can make substantial savings by adding Fujitsu aggregators to their network.

  • The AMSAN enables broadband traffic from individual Copper MSANs (CMSAN) to be concentrated into a single backhaul. Designed for larger exchanges, Fujitsu’s AMSAN handles up to 22 thousand lines per system and underlines the scalability of our platform.
  • The FMSAN incorporates Layer 2 and TDM switching, to handle aggregation at multiple network layers. The multiple switches perform both VLAN and TDM cross-connections and provide non-blocking switching and grooming for large numbers of access ports each of which can carry multiple services. A typical MSAN shelf can aggregate from ten to a thousand access ports onto a single, protected network interface.
