1830 Photonic Service Interconnect - Modular (PSI-M)

A disaggregated, compact modular platform that delivers scalability and flexibility to optical networking and DCI applications

The Nokia 1830 Photonic Services Interconnect – Modular (PSI-M) is a compact, modular optical networking platform, optimized for data center interconnect applications over metro, regional, and long-haul distances. The shift to cloud-based services created a tremendous need for optical networks and bandwidth to interconnect data centers, as well as to connect local data caching sites to their respective metro point of presence locations. The 1830 PSI-M modular architecture allows carriers to configure the interfaces and capacities needed for each application.
