ALU Intros Flexible Wavelength Routing on its 1830 PSS

Alcatel-Lucent introduced a wavelength routing solution that can be deployed on its 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS), which the company said brings greater flexibility to the optical transport network while reducing CAPEX compared to electrically-switched alternatives.

The wavelength routing solution consists of specialized Colorless Directionless Contentionless-FlexGrid (CDC-F) hardware and Wave Routing Engine (WRE) software. The WRE software provides end-to-end wavelength routing, deployment, and management capabilities. This includes unique in-band per wavelength OAM capabilities to allow for efficient monitoring of wavelength connectivity and support the rapid diagnosis and troubleshooting of potential wavelength connectivity issues. The solution can be scaled from 100G wavelengths to 200G wavelengths without changing equipment required to route wavelengths.

ALU noted that Verizon has chosen the 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) for its ultra-longhaul, core optical network. The company said Verizon selected its 1830 PSS converged WDM/OTN/Packet based-platform as part of its transition to an optical converged infrastructure to address traffic growth and enable faster and less expensive deployment of new services.

“Operators need unlimited network dynamism and scale. A programmable IP/optical fabric is essential. Our wavelength routing technology is a foundational ingredient in providing the unparalleled flexibility with massive automation and increased efficiency that are needed in the optical layer. This solution provides unconstrained wavelength networking and can be deployed at scale,” stated Brian Fitzgerald, Senior Vice President, Global Solutions, Alcatel-Lucent.
