Media types:

  • 1000BASE-LX/LH (single-mode 1310nm) - preferred
  • 10GBASE-LR (single-mode 1310nm) - preferred
  • 100GBASE-LR4
We may be able to support other optic frequencies on single mode fiber (CWDM, DWDM, 1550nm, BiDi, etc…) - please email us to inquire. Note that in these cases the member is required to provide the optics for both ends from a mutually agreeable supplier, the member is responsible for procuring spares, the optics must be programmed to be compatible with the NWAX equipment, and in the future if NWAX switches hardware platforms all responsibility for getting optics compatible with the new switches falls on the member.

The NWAX core is located in the Pittock Building:
921 SW Washington St
Portland, OR 97205

The NWAX cabinet is located in Suite 108 (we are building out a new cabinet in T-275)

Rack designation: 108.01.05

To interconnect with single-mode-fiber we will issue LOA/CFA to one of our panels in the main building meet-me-room: T250

CAT5e cross connects from some locations in the building are possible, gated by distance limitations. Contact or your Pittock Building representative to discuss availability.
