Optical Transport Network (OTN) MSPP Platforms Based on WDM
Service providers in today's telecommunication market are faced with a challenge of providing high capacity services cost-effectively with the shortest lead times. As a result, access network infrastructure must be flexible in design and support delivery of high-capacity services of Carrier Ethernet, MPLS, SONET/SDH, Storage Area Network (SAN), video and other demanding services while maintaining the most efficient manageable transport solution.
This white paper provides an overview of the next generation optical access platform features and capabilities in conjunction with DWDM and Optical Transport Network (OTN) layer. The main emphasis will be made on benefits of the OTN layer as the consolidation layer for existing and next generation access networks such as the packet optical network, carrier Ethernet and the traditional SONET/SDH networks which remain relevant today for many service providers and their customers.
