1830 PSS-x P-OTN Switching

Scalable and efficient P-OTN switching for multi-protocol wholesale services

The Nokia 1830 PSS-x P-OTN switching portfolio lets you optimize and scale optical transport for a variety of network applications, from data center interconnect to efficiently growing large metro, regional and long-haul multi-layer, multiservice optical networks.

In optical transport networks, the 1830 PSS-8x and 1830 PSS-12x are optimized for metro switching, while the 1830 PSS-24x is suited for core switching applications. These platforms give you the flexibility and efficiency you need to enable continued revenue streams as customers demand more bandwidth and enterprises move to 10G, 100G and 400GE connectivity. 

Employing a centralized G.709 P-OTN switching fabric, our scalable platforms provide network operators with a high degree of scalability and flexibility to deliver a wide range of packet-oriented services. They let you combine packet OTN (P-OTN), Layer 1 P-OTN switching and photonic layer switching to create highly efficient solutions for delivering virtually any end-user service.

Benefits and features

Deliver wholesale services efficiently

Our platforms make it easy to deliver wholesale services. Scalable, centralized P-OTN switching with up to 48 Tb core capacity complements distributed, card-based P-OTN grooming at the edge. Integrated packet transport provides efficient, versatile, and reliable Layer 2 Ethernet transport. Nokia PSE coherent wavelength modulation formats and shaping maximize fiber utilization. And advanced multilayer networking algorithms reliably transport services at the most economical layer.

Maximize revenue opportunities

The 1830 PSS-x platforms help you meet unpredictable traffic dynamics with agility. For example, they support evolution through 100G and B100G connectivity services. They also provide tiered protection and restoration resiliency levels for value-based SLAs and low-latency, bandwidth-efficient encryption for business-critical applications.

Meet a wide range of transport application needs

We help you optimize cost while providing efficient optical transport for any application, fiber type and reach. Our platforms support unconstrained service grooming at the wavelength, port and sub-port levels. They also offer enhanced packet optical transport features, including CDC-F wavelength routing, Carrier Ethernet 2.0-certified services, wavelength and sub-wavelength services, and highly secure encrypted wavelengths.
