The Genesis Access Service Manager (ASM) is at the heart of the Genesis product portfolio. Located in the Central Office/Exchange or Data Center, typically referred to as the core of the network, it dynamically manages aggregated links to/from Genesis equipment in the access layer.
Genesis Aggregation V Bonding
Traditionally, enhancing xDSL services through bonding, G.Bond/EFM, has been complex to implement, requiring specific DSLAMs, specific DSLAM software and detailed pair routing management. In addition, traditional bonding standards are not efficient where one or more component circuits exhibit poor performance or high error rates as is common in xDSL networks.
Genesis technology approach is DSLAM agnostic, replacing the need for specific DSLAM software and pair routing, aggregating the component streams of each customer connection at an appliance located in the core of the network: The Genesis ASM.
xDSL pairs can be dynamically added or removed from an aggregated link without re-initialization or downtime and performance of each pair is constantly managed.
Access Service Manager benefits include:
