Rates of OTN frame structures at each WDM level

OTUk rate = 255/(239 �?k) x STM-N frame rate
ODUk rate = 239/(239 �?k) x STM-N frame rate
OPUk payload rate = 238/(239 �?k) x STM-N frame rate
1. ODU0 and OTU5G do not use the standard frame structure of the G.709 protocol and therefore do not comply with the preceding formulas.
2. An ODU0 encapsulates one GE service and is cross-connected between an OTU board and an XCH or XCM board. ODU0 cannot be configured for an XCS board. OTU boards do not provide OTU0 ports on their WDM sides.
3. One OTU5G encapsulates four GE services. Currently, only L4G and LQG boards provide OTU5G ports on their WDM sides. 2 666 057.143 kbit/s = 255/238 × 2488320 kbit/s
