1830 Time-sensitive Packet Switch (TPS)

Carrier-grade Ethernet time-sensitive networking supporting real-time, ultra-low latency business, residential and mobile services 


The Nokia 1830 Time-sensitive Packet Switch (TPS) portfolio helps you meet new demands by cost-effectively scaling optical networking capacity to connect more sites and enable new applications. It provides compact, carrier-grade Ethernet time-sensitive network (TSN) switches that let you support converged transport of real-time services.

With the 1830 TPS portfolio, you can deliver real-time communications with ultra-low latency to support business, residential and mobile services over cost-effective packet optical networks. The 1830 TPS supports a wide range of applications and services, including mobile fronthaul, carrier Ethernet, industrial IoT and residential broadband.

Benefits and features

Meet growing bandwidth demand and deliver new 5G services

Deliver 5G services without compromise

Support new 5G services that have stringent synchronization requirements. The 1830 TPS portfolio provides RAN-agnostic multiservice transport of CPRI, RoE, eCPRI and Ethernet traffic streams on one platform that ensures minimized latency and high-precision timing. 

Reduce operational costs

Quickly meet growing bandwidth demand while reducing OPEX. The 1830 TPS accelerates your transition to 5G and eliminates your need for overlay transport networks by supporting ultra-low-latency transport of multi-generational RAN traffic over a TSN packet optical fabric.

Maximize revenue opportunities

Unlock new revenue with the packet TSN switch supporting carrier-class services with high quality of service (QoS), carrier-grade operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) and high resiliency. The 1830 TPS also speeds rollouts with plug-and-play service activation and maximizes bandwidth efficiency through packet and WDM aggregation of traffic.

Reduce total cost of ownership

Take advantage of cloud RAN site simplification savings and edge computing performance gains. The 1830 TPS provides ultra-low-latency transport between cell sites and edge hub sites in compliance with TSN fronthaul (IEEE 802.1CM). It reduces total cost of ownership by up to 50 percent compared to existing WDM fronthaul solutions.
