ANS Application Note

SDH Interface with the STM-1 Shelf

Introduction STM-1 Shelf

The ANS supports the physical

integration of an STM-1 shelf
containing the AXD 155-3. The
AXD 155-3 add drop multiplexer Other networks

SDH Background
The transport mechanism of the future is poised to be SDH - Synchronous Digital Hierarchy. SDH creates a
hierarchical multiplex system in a ring structure as opposed to traditional point-to-point backbone links in

SDH is based on a transmission bit-rate of 155 Mbit/s, also called STM-1 (Synchronous Transport
Mechanism). Up to 63 * 2 Mbit/s interfaces in an STM-1 ring are allowed, providing a payload (actual
transmission bandwidth) of 126 Mbit/s. SDH standards also handle what is called STM-4 (622 Mbit/s) and
STM-16 (2.4 Gbit/s).

Advantages of SDH transport networks include:

♣ flexible and software controlled transport networks, instead of rigid, hardware-based PDH
♣ resilience in transmission - signals are transmitted in 2 directions
♣ advanced event management and fault location

It will not necessarily replace PDH, as SDH is also capable of carrying PDH signals.

The STM-1 shelf is based on the
