Hi everyone. First, I work for a Local Exchange carrier. Building a 1 gig non-switched optical wave circuit through multiple 6500s and Central offices and a data center. Circuit will work through Supermux cards set up as SONET.
Question is, when mapping, why would we set this up as 7 STS3Cs instead of 21 STS1s? Both equal the 1G bandwidth of course but just looking for the benefits or hard reasoning for the STS3C mapping. Thanks all!
