The Alcatel-Lucent1850TSS-160is a compact version of theAlcatel-LucentTSS-320.The two models share the universal switch matrix architecture, operate on a common software release and use common circuit packs. TheAlcatel-Lucent1850TSS-160is anext-generation,Packet-OpticalTransport platform that supports any mix of traffic, fromall-circuittoall-packet.With theAlcatel-Lucent1850TSS-160,businesses can begin withcircuit-basedtransport and gradually ramp up packet transport by simply changing line cards. The AlcatelLucent 1850TSS-160supports current traffic requirements while eliminating the scalability issues encountered when traditional multiservice provisioning platforms (MSPPs) are confronted with the high growth of packetbased traffic.

The Alcatel-Lucent1850TSS-160offers the flexibility to split increasing traffic demands among any combination of Carrier Ethernet, Transport MultiProtocol Label Switching(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.
