Madison / MTS\TB 5800-100G Applications

Discussion created by viavisupport on Sep 18, 2018
Product DescriptionINTERNAL ONLY knowledge entry regarding the Applications/Port supported on the initial release 1 of Madison the 5800-100G platform.
Port 1 is considered the strong port (bigger space in the FPGA) so supports full line rate capture. So for capture at 40G or 100G use Port 1.  Also should use port 1 for OTN with embedded Ethernet or ODU multiplexing payloads. Bulk bert OTN can be done on either port. RS-FEC only supported from port 1 until release 26.0 where support was added for port 2.
