The Alcatel 1675 Lambda Unite Multiservice Switch (MSS) is a multiservice optical switch that can be used as an ADM, terminal multiplexer, multi-ring hub, and broadband cross-connect.
The Alcatel 1675 can support small to large office applications in backbone and metro networks.
While the 1675 Lambda Unite MSS supports SONET/SDH standard compliant rings, it also enables migration towards dynamic mesh-based networking. The system architecture is based on a full non-blocking duplicated switch matrix, including both 160G “metro optimized” and 320G capacities that can be upgraded while in-service.
The Alcatel 1675 Lambda Unite MSS has a flexible architecture. For instance, the system allows you to use one platform to manage SDH and SONET traffic while enabling services such as Gigabit Ethernet. The product’s comprehensive set of standards compliant ring capabilities greatly reduces the need for additional cross-connects and multiplexing systems.
