IPT provides carrier-grade L2 transport, switching, and networking plus OTN aggregation in the 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS). This single-box OTN/WDM platform introduces a new generation of streamlined packet-optical transport solutions spanning access through the core network.

Even more, it leverages the power and value of our Service Router Operating System (SROS) enabling a fully managed packet solution with common service, operations, and management model across the Alcatel-Lucent optical and Ethernet/IP/MPLS portfolio. This results in a more comprehensive and efficient solution – from core to aggregation to customer edge - versus multi-box or partnered solutions using disjointed operating and management systems.

Key elements include point-to-point Ethernet service and switching muxponders, Ethernet switching OTN client cards, network interface demarcation devices, and a common IP/Optical packet operational model. They all come in one platform for business/wholesale, mobile/broadband backhaul, public/private cloud, and vertical service delivery. End-to-end management is provided by the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM). These same elements can also be managed by the Alcatel-Lucent 1350 Optical Management System (OMS) and the Alcatel-Lucent 1354 Photonic Manager.
