Metro optical transport platforms
Big things come in small packages
Deliver the big things your customers want with compact Metro Optical Transport Platforms based on our 1830 Photonic Service Switch.
Our metro-optimized platforms help you keep up with fast-evolving demand for high-bandwidth video, cloud, and data center services. Built specifically for the space and cost constraints of today’s metro, cloud, and data center interconnect (DCI) networks, they are smaller and more powerful than any other available solution. With our platforms you get:
- 2X more capacity
- Support for any mix of packet, OTN, and photonic services
- 50% smaller physical footprint
- 40% lower power consumption
- SDN capabilities that support application-driven, dynamic service instantiation
- PSE DSP family powered muxponder cards that support efficient and flexible 100G service connectivity
Total metro traffic will increase 560% by 2017
Demand for cloud and video services is driving more — and increasingly diverse — traffic to the metro network. Traffic is staying in the metro as operators, cloud providers, and co-location providers add data centers and keep content closer to end users. By 2017, 75% of all metro traffic will be terminated within the metro network.
It’s not enough to adapt your core platforms. To address this shifting dynamic, you need metro-optimized solutions that can help you cost effectively add capacity and easily adjust to changing usage patterns.
Build better metro, cloud, and DCI networks
Turn traffic growth into business opportunity with our suite of Metro Optical Transport Platforms. These platforms extend the capabilities of our 1830 Photonic Service Switch and cloud-optimized metro solutions. They give you added flexibility to meet demand for capacity and launch compelling multiservice offers. And they increase the efficiency of your metro, cloud, and DCI networks: you’ll consume less power and make better use of your available space.
