TAS System
What Is TAS ?
    TAS - Total Access Solution provides operators with a complete access solution for delivering a full range of services to end-users. Services are provided to users' businesses and homes over the existing copper pairs infrastructure. All types of end-users, local or remote, residential, business or enterprises, benefit from the services.

    The services range from basic telephony (POTS, ISDN BRI), fast Internet access, and leased lines to video services. TAS enables the operator to connect to any kind of service or content provider. Providers may be locally or remotely connected through public networks or dedicated lines.
TAS enables Telecom and Service providers to deliver entertainment, shopping, banking, games, and every type of information service to their customers

 
Network Architecture
    The TAS offers operators a unique access solution which incorporates all the functionality of a broadband access mux, narrowband DLC, and SDH ADMs into a single shelf

    The TAS HDT can aggregate traffic of thousands of users into a single shelf, reducing the C.O. equipment needed dramatically, and reducing the interfaces to backbone networks, resulting in significant savings on backbone equipment
An operator that uses TAS to build its access network can migrate the network topologies from simple rings or stars, to sophisticated topologies that have branches and spurs, mixed topologies of rings and trees. The operator does not need to pre-determine the way the network will evolve.

 
 Topologies
    The TAS system offers operators unique capabilities in terms of network topologies. The TAS ONUs can be connected towards the backbone networks in various topologies. These topologies may grow and change as the access network evolves.

    The TAS system supports topologies and saves the operator the need to add transmission equipment to the access network. It allows better utilization of the fiber infrastructure, and provides redundancy mechanisms

    For example: a single HDT may connect in the initial stage to a few ONUs in a STAR configuration. In the next step the operator may choose to form a fiber ring to connect between these ONUs in order to provide the users with higher availability, based on the rings inherent Automatic Protection Switching capability. Later, more ONUs may be connected to the same HDT in other topologies such as tree or cascade, all depending on the requirements per serving area
