The ION219-x is an all new intelligent, high-density, multi-protocol system supporting a variety of network interface devices . Designed for both carrier class and enterprise network applications where multiple points of fiber integration and secure network management of the fiber interface devices is essential. An end-to-end fiber integration solution can be achieve by pairing the modules in a high density ION chassis with the modules in another ION chassis, an ION stand-alone, or a Transition Networks' Point System™ stand-alone device. To take full advantage of all the features and functions available with the ION Chassis, an ION Management Module is required. The ION Management Module connects to the chassis backplane and communicates with the individual cards in the ION Chassis. Each slide-in-module for the ION Chassis has specific features and functions that are controlled via the ION Management Module. A network administrator can configure, monitor and troubleshoot ION slide-in-modules remotely via the ION Management Module.Transition Networks understands that no network is managed in the same manner and that different security levels and management interfaces are often required depending on the deployment of the ION Chassis. With that in mind, the ION Platform has been designed to be one of the most versatile and secure fiber intergration systems available today.
