Pre-owned, used and refurbished Cisco 15454-DS3N-12E.

MULTI-LINK (MLCP) is a trusted supplier of optical networking, carrier class equipment, including the Cisco 15454-DS3N-12E. Perhaps more than any other family of equipment, the new product cost associated with Cisco optical networking equipment can severely restrict a company from adding critical components to its network.

Consider, various expansion modules list for well over $ 100,000 and, just because capital funds might not be available for the 15454-DS3N-12E or some other significant purchase, it doesn't change your fundamental predicament: you still need the part…now!

MLCP is typically able to provide refurbished 15454-DS3N-12E – and a wide range of other pre-owned Optical Networking components - for incredible savings, often between 50-90% off list. Through our own inventory and close working relationships with our telco customers, we're able to support the requirements of our global base of ONS users.

MULTI-LINK offers our standard our lifetime warranty on all refubished Cisco optical networking equipment. Each and every pre-owned or used 15454-DS3N-12E we provide undergoes extensive testing prior to shipment, and extreme attention to detail is paid to every shipment.

Marketing Information

The ONS 15454 DS3N-12E card provides 12 Telcordia-compliant ports per card. Each port operates at 44.736 Mbps over a single 75 ohm 728A or equivalent coaxial span. The DS3N-12E card provides enhanced performance monitoring functions. The DS3N-12E can detect several different errored logic bits within a DS-3 frame. This function allows the ONS 15454 to identify a degrading DS-3 facility caused by upstream electronics (DS-3 Framer). In addition, DS3 frame format auto detection and J1 path trace are supported. By monitoring additional overhead in the DS-3 frame, subtle network degradations can be detected.
