The Bitstorm-HP family of products are 24-port VDSL2 IP-DSLAMs, featuring a hardened, high performance design with efficient power and space considerations. Designed as a 1U high product, the Bitstorm-HP is ideal for deployment in space constrained indoor MDU or external cabinet locations to take advantage of short, last-mile loops which are ideal for VDSL2 rate/reach performance.
The Bitstorm-HP family uses the latest VDSL2 silicon technology from Ikanos. The Bitstorm-160-HP models support all eight (8) VDSL2 profiles (up to Profile 30a) and delivers 100/100Mbps Up/Down line-rate when paired with a Zhone VDSL2 CPE (6652-A2). The lower cost Bitstorm-HP-150 models support up to Profile 17a, delivering line rates up to 100Mbps Down / 50Mbps Up. All Bitstorm HP models fully interoperate with Zhone's VDSL2 CPE 6652-A2 (30a, Bridge/Router) and 6652-A1 (17a, Smart Bridge). The Bitstorm-HP IP-DSLAMs also feature ADSL2+ fallback when connecting to industry-standard, ADSL2+ CPE, thus providing easy migration for users running legacy ADSL services, while providing expanded revenue opportunities when deploying new high-speed VDSL2 services.
The Bitstorm-HP family delivers very high line-rate performance and supports multi-play services implemented on a powerful Network Processor. The Bitstorm-HP is designed with separate and distinct control and data paths to allow high bit-rate services while supporting advanced L2/L3 features such as - DHCP (Option-82), IGMP Snooping/Proxy, IP/ARP Spoofing, Forced MAC Forwarding, QoS and Security/Filtering in either Bridged or VLAN Switched operating modes.
The Bitstorm-HP features an intuitive Web Graphical Interface for device configuration and management. It also supports a complete set of xDSL MIBs for SNMP based management.
The Bitstorm-HP family is also available with optional, built-in POTS splitters (600 or 900 ohm) as well as DC or AC powering options.
The Bitstorm-HP is ideally suited for deployment in Multi Dwelling Units (MDU) for the delivery of bandwidth intensive services such as HDTV, Video Conferencing, Interactive Gaming and symmetric E-Line business services. The Bitstorm-HP models support dual Gigabit Ethernet uplinks which can be aggregated using a standards-based line aggregation protocol (LACP 802.3ad). This allows deep-fiber deployment and interface with Ethernet Metro switches.
Operators providing business services can utilize feature-rich traffic management and security functions to provide guaranteed service levels and prevent malicious user behavior. Some of the supported features are: Prevent traffic flooding between line bridge ports; configurable rate-limit per bridge port per VLAN; IGMP broadcast limit per line port; MAC address spoofing; IP/ARP spoofing; IP-Allow filter based on DHCP snooping; Forced destination MAC address forwarding.
