Alcatel-Lucent 1850 Transport Service Switch (TSS) Product Family: Packet-Optical Transport TSS
The Alcatel-Lucent 1850 Transport Service Switch (TSS) supports any mix of traffic, from all-circuit to all-packet, for seamless transformation to the Packet Transport Network (PTN). These Packet Optical Transport (POT) switches enable cost-effective migration from MSPP SDH/SONET to PTN, ensuring deterministic behavior, scalability, reliability, and strong OA&M.
The 1850 TSS platforms provide converged support for Carrier Ethernet and SDH/SONET, connection-oriented support for packet services, integrated WDM/ROADM for carrier-class transport, and scalable hardware-based OA&M.
With the 1850 TSS, existing SDH/SONET network infrastructure can be fully leveraged while allowing for simultanious deployment of robust packet transport. This rich-featured Ethernet uses the same platforms, and offers a complete array of TDM and packet services regardless of the underlying transport, using models that range from metro aggregation to CPE.
