Alcatel-Lucent 1670 SM

Alcatel-Lucent's 1670 SM is the Optical Multi-Service node, which is specifically engineered for metro and backbone equipment and applications. It contains multi-shelf high capacity clusters, multi-service data-centric high capacity metro/core context, intercontinental and transoceanic gateways, ultra long haul metro/core networks, and next generation SDH high capacity add drop multiplexer or Cross-Connect in multiple rings. It has an ISA-GbE plug-in board that can hold eight Gigabit Ethernet ports with SX/LX units.

This system handles high traffic very efficiently and is supporting the growth that will occur in the future, specifically QoS. The 1670 SM is capable of sustaining multiple shelves allowing it to connect to and support various other systems, devices, or networks. For example, it can handle many STM-1, STM-4, STM-16 or STM- 64 SNCP rings. The 1670 SM has features designed to support as much technology as possible in the most efficient way.
