The Alcatel-Lucent 1655 Access Multiplexer Universal (AMU) is a compact, high-density access multiplexer that delivers high-value services for service providers and enterprises. Meeting multiservice needs with one platform, it supports both Ethernet and TDM over existing SDH networks, avoiding expensive overlay networks. It expands Ethernet service reach to sites without fiber access using existing E1 circuits with standards-based Ethernet over PDH.
Offered in two rack-mounted and two street-cabinet versions, the 1655 AMU offers a flexible mix of circuit and data traffic.
With its compact shelf, the Alcatel-Lucent 1655 AMU is suitable for a variety of installation locations in CPE, CO, street-cabinet, access and metro environments. Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) optics for STM-1/4/16 interfaces supply a complete range of options for reach and a higher speed for maximum deployment flexibility. For further flexibility, it provides a default DC power supply or an AC power supply through an external converter.
