ZMS Virtual Appliance

Virtualized Zhone Management System (ZMS) for configuring, monitoring, and managing small network deployments


The ZMS Virtual Appliance is a fully-featured ZMS client-server platform for small deployments. It offers platform portability by encapsulating the ZMS server within a VirtualBox container. The ZMS Virtual Appliance server runs on any Intel x86 hardware platform utilizing Linux, Windows, MAC OS or Solaris as the native operating system.

Scaling Information:
Maximum number of MXKs supported in the total network are:
- MXK-194/198= 32, MXK-319= 16, MXK-819= 8, MXK-823= 8
Maximum number of ONTs supported in the total network are:
- 4,096 ONTs
- All types of Zhone ONT
Maximum number of MX 1Us supported in the total network are:
- 256 MX 1Us
- Of the following types: MX-15x, MX-16x, MXP-16x, MX-26x, MXP-26x, MX-18x, MXP-18x, MX-28x, MXP-28x, MX-180-GE
- Maximum number of CPE's = 6,144
Note: In a mixed networks of MX and MXK's use the following formula to calculate the number of devices supported:
- total # of network devices = (# MX )+(# MXK-198 x8)+(# MXK-319 x16)+(# MXK-819 or MXK-823 x32)
- must be less than or equal to 256

If there is a mixed network of MXKs and 1Us then
o 1 MXK 198 ~ 8 MX 1Us
e.g. a network of 8 MXK 198 (~64 MX 1Us) then an additional 192 MX 1Us can be supported
o 1 MXK 319 ~ 64 MX 1Us
e.g. a network of 2 MXK 319 (~128 MX 1Us) then an additional 128 MX 1Us can be supported
o 1 MXK 819, 823 ~ 128 MX 1Us
e.g. a network of 1 MXK 819 (~128 MX 1Us) then an additional 128 MX 1Us can be supported
