The Alcatel-Lucent1850TSS-320is anext-generation,Packet-OpticalTransport platform that supports any mix of traffic, fromall-circuittoall-packet.Its unique universal matrix seamlessly switches packets or circuits in their native format, cost effectively transforming from TDM to packets. With theAlcatel-Lucent1850TSS-320,businesses can begin withcircuit-basedtransport and, over time, gradually ramp up packet transport by simply changing line cards. TheAlcatel-Lucent1850TSS-320supports current traffic requirements while eliminating the scalability issues encountered when traditional multiservice provisioning platforms are confronted with the high growth ofpacket-basedtraffic.

The Alcatel-Lucent1850TSS-320offers the flexibility to split increasing traffic demands among any combination of carrier Ethernet, Transport MPLS(T-MPLS),wavelength division multiplexing (WDM), optical data unit (ODU) and SDH/SONET transport technologies. It offers powerfulcross-layernetwork management and a unifiied control plane, simplifying operations and reducing the total cost of ownership.
