Product Introduction  

Reduce IT Costs. Improve Performance.
SAIC is revolutionizing Information Technology Infrastructure (ITI) with the introduction of Secure Converged Solution (SCS).

A fiber optic solution built around proven standardized Passive Optical Network (PON) technology, SCS converges voice, video (RF or IP), data, security cameras, wireless antennas and building management sensors over the same single-mode fiber. Because SCS scales so easily, it supports from 50 to 50,000 or more end-point devices.

By migrating to SCS on new construction or renovation projects, organizations can take a powerful leap forward in alleviating the power, space, cooling, and bandwidth limitation issues that have been a burden to the IT market for years.

Quantifiable and Compelling Benefits
SCS is capable of transmitting high data rates from 40 feet to 40 miles with absolutely
no active electronics in between the data center and desktop or end-user device. The
centralization of high-value IT equipment in a single location eliminates the need for
the traditional work group switches in riser closets, greatly reducing the electronic
components comprising the network.

Secure Converged Solution (SCS)
Fewer electronics translate into fewer failure points in the SCS network and a more reliable ITI. With virtually unlimited bandwidth potential, this simplified architecture means savings of up to 40 percent on ITI installation costs and 80 percent savings on IT-related power, space, and cooling requirements. Implementing SCS also means that fewer trained IT professionals are required to maintain the network, reducing IT operations and maintenance costs by up to 80 percent. Together, these savings truly earn SCS the label of Green IT.

Bridging the Past to the Future
Designed around the many features and benefits of single-mode fiber, SCS comprises three main components; the Optical Network Terminal (ONT), passive optical splitters, and Optical Line Terminal (OLT). As a pure Layer-2 transport ITI solution, SCS interoperates seamlessly with current IP networks, building a bridge from the past to the future so that organizations can get full life-cycle use out of their present data center equipment while covering themselves against the unforeseen IT requirements of the future.

The OLT is the heart of SCS, performing traditional Layer-2 addressing and prioritization functions. The ONT sits near the end-point device and serves as a media converter and network security gateway. In between the OLT and ONT are strategically placed PON splitters engineered to maximize the scalability of the ITI.

The COMPANY Advantage
With SCS, COMPANY draws on four decades of experience in the areas of government and military operations, science and technology, and healthcare to deliver a total ITI solution that is cost-efficient and technically superior to traditional IT architectures. COMPANY engineers carefully test many types of PON implementation scenarios using Gigabit (GPON) and Gigabit Ethernet (GEPON) equipment from different manufacturers, so we know how to best stretch IT investment dollars.

SCS Is Green IT
 Earn valuable LEED points for power, space, and cooling conservation
 Save power with no electronic equipment between the data center and desktop
 Eliminate riser closet cooling needs with passive optical splitters
 Reduce telecom riser closet size with small wall-mounted fiber distribution cabinets
 Install fewer cable ducts, conduit and cable trays by reducing electronic emanations


Reduce Life-Cycle IT Costs
Reduced IT facility costs
SCS can lower IT-related power, space, and cooling costs by 80 percent or more.

Lower installation costs
Case studies from recent projects show that SCS implementations, which require the purchase and installation of fewer electronics, can result in savings of up to 40 percent on IT installation costs, when compared to traditional copper cable installations that require conduits and ducting.

Elimination of switch costs
By removing active electronics in the riser closets, costs related to configuration and maintenance of workgroup switches are eliminated.

Reduced O&M costs
Full convergence of voice, data, video, and other devices on a single mode fiber allows centralized operation of the system and reduces related operations and maintenance costs by up to 80 percent.

Lower radiation-related costs
Because fiber does not radiate, the need to install expensive cable trays, troughs, and other hardened conduit-type cable raceways is significantly reduced or eliminated.

Longer equipment life cycles
Design of SCS expands the average electronic equipment refresh period.

Conserve Valuable Resources
Use less power
Passive optical components in riser closets consume no power.

High availability
Unlike copper, fiber optic cables are manufactured from very plentiful resources.

Reduce IT power consumption
SCS transmits signals from 40 feet to 40 miles without amplification, eliminating
power hungry work group switches and reducing IT power consumption by 80 percent

Eliminate nearly all riser closet equipment
This can result in telecom closet size reductions up to 80 percent. In addition, cooling
is no longer required, and power consumption may be reduced by up to 80 percent.

Reduced O&M Costs
Because SCS allows for the centralization of high-value IT equipment in a data center, related operations and maintenance costs are reduced by up to 80 percent.


Enhance Network Security
Secure convergence of signals
Voice and data traffic travel on the same wavelengths (color of light) using Time
Division Multiplexing within the wavelengths to separate the traffic. Video travels on a separate wavelength.

128-bit encryption
Integrated 128-bit AES encryption is available on most SCS systems and is further layered with security provided with other service networks (like VoIP).

Encapsulation and tagging
VLAN encapsulation and tagging further protect voice, video, and data traffic.

Visible alarms
OLTs and ONTs have intrusion, loss of power, and optional low battery alarms visible real-time in a NOC.

Asset tracking
Enhanced IT asset tracking helps prevent theft of valuable IT equipment and also prevents unauthorized equipment from being connected to the system.


Low risk of eavesdropping
Fiber does not emanate the way copper does, which helps prevent unwanted passive eavesdropping.

Redundant OLTs
Optional dual homing of redundant OLTs ensure business continuity of operations.

Supports thin client
Easily supports a more secure thin client architecture.


Improve Network Reliability
Fewer failure points
Because much of the SCS network architecture contains passive components requiring no power, there are less active components to fail.

High reliability
The OLTs and ONTs used in the SCS design are carrier-class equipment built for 99.999% reliability.

Upgrade remotely
Software upgrades and security commands can be pushed to the ONTs remotely from the data center.

EMI immunity
Unlike copper cabling, fiber optic cable is immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI) that can cause troublesome noise, data errors, and voltage spikes on a communications path.

Greater performance
Enhanced fiber fault isolation and the ability to “hot swap” PON cards in the OLT lead to greater performance and reliability.

Future reliability
The virtually unlimited bandwidth of fiber and its ability to deliver up to
10 gigabits to a single user makes SCS more reliable for future requirements.

Fewer choke points
Nonblocking PON cards and granular bandwidth allocation capability
per card slot or ONT helps eliminate network choke points.


Increase Bandwidth to Users

10 Gbps capability
OLT capable of delivering up to 10-gigabit capability per PON port.

Bandwidth where you need it
Granular allocation of bandwidth, configurable in 64-kilobit increments per user interface, allows network to direct bandwidth to users where it is needed most.

Nonblocking architectures
Both backplane and uplink architectures are configurable as nonblocking.

Redundant uplink capabilities
Multiple, redundant 10-gigabit core uplink capabilities (maximum of 40 gigabits per OLT).

800 Gbps backplane
OLT comes equipped with an 800-gigabit backplane with more capability planned for
the near future.

25-terahertz potential
Physics of single mode fiber allow for almost unlimited bandwidth potential of up to
25-terahertz, making it more future-proof than other ITI architecture solutions.

Conserve bandwidth
IGMP snooping capabilities conserve considerable bandwidth by transmitting
only the video streams requested by PON ports.
