1830 Photonic Service Switch

The Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) supports next-generation WDM multiservice transport from access to core. The scalable switch drives lower TCO and extends network life cycles.The 1830 PSS  transforms traditional WDM into a flexible transport layer with managed agile photonics, multilayer switching and services, plus network intelligence. The T/ROADM platform supports a wide range of applications and services such as Carrier Ethernet, mobile backhaul and multicast video. With 1830 PSS platforms ranging from compact access to converged Optical Transport Network (OTN)/WDM core, operators can optimize multiservice networks to meet unpredictable traffic demands.

The 1830 PSS portfolio provides terabit OTN switching and photonics capacities. The Photonic Service Engine enables high-performance 100G and an evolutionary path to 400G transport. Leveraging an intelligent control plane and integrated data, control and management planes, the 1830 PSS simplifies network management for maximum multilayer performance and efficiency.
