Product Detail

The C1216RO is a high-performance outside plant Ethernet switch that has been optimized for eCPRI fronthaul transport and CPRI-to-eCPRI conversion. The C1216RO supports the high bandwidth, low latency, and synchronization requirements of 5G fronthaul and midhaul networks in a unique outside plant IP65 configuration.

The C1216RO provides 9x10GbE (SFP+)/25GE (SFP28) access Ethernet ports, and 2x25/50G (SFP28/DSFP28), and 2x100G (QSFP28) access or line Ethernet ports. Additionally, the C1216RO has 3x10GbE CPRI ports with an internal gateway function to convert CPRI into packetized eCPRI for termination at a packet-based DU.
