Option 11C Highlights

Motorola 68040 Commercial Processor

The Option 11C packs the same power as the larger Meridian 1 systems with the Motorola 68040 commercial processor. With the increased horsepower, the Option 11C is well suited for small call center and telemarketing environments. The increase in real-time processing power is seven times over the previous generation Option 11 system. This increase in processing capability enables Option 11C to support real-time intensive applications, heavy call traffic associated with call centers, sophisticated applications such as Computer Telephony Integration (CTI), Customer Controlled Routing (CCR), and Integrated Voice Response (IVR) . This dramatic increase in processing power ensures that the Option 11C can support your business needs today as well as future applications.

Ethernet Connection

The new, Option 11C Ethernet connection provides an interface to Meridian Administration Tools Release 5 and can be used to deliver Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) alarm traps to open management work stations such as Cabletron Spectrum and HP OpenView. SNMP compatibility allows more efficient Meridian 1 alarm management to provide a unified view of network operations.

Remote Connection

The Option 11C is particularly well suited to be used in a network as a powerful, survivable remote, distributing network intelligence across sites. Option 11C expansion cabinets can be further distributed in your local area with fiber optic links extending peripheral equipment up to 2 miles (3 kilometers) away. The remote connectivity of the expansion cabinets is particularly attractive in campus-like or high-rise business environments.

Keycode Software Activation

With Option 11C, Nortel introduces a new software delivery system which enables software Feature Packages and Terminal Number (TN) levels to be activated via keycodes. This capability allows for much quicker and easier order fulfillment for software Feature Packages.
