Alcatel-Lucent 1850 TSS-100

The Alcatel-Lucent 1850-100 Transport Service Switch (TSS) is a family of packet optical transport switches that support all circuit to all packet traffic for easy transformation to the packet transport network. With these Packet Optical Transport (POT) switches can with very little expense migrate from MSPP SDH/SONET to packet transport network ensuring scalability, reliability and strong OA&M. The Alcatel-Lucent 1850 Transport Service Switch provides joined support for Carrier Ethernet and SDH/SONET. It also offers connection oriented support for packet services, integrated WDM/ROADM for carrier-class transport, and scalable hardware-based OA&M.
This product enables service providers to leverage existing SDH/SONET networks with carrier-class reliability for packet and TDM services and transport providers can offer a complete array of TDM and packet services regardless of transport, but then can migrate to pure packet transport, once packet traffic picks up. Service providers can offer TDM and packet services regardless of the underlying transport, using models that range from metro aggregation (MAN) to CPE.
