Tellabs Enhances 8800 MSR with Multilink PPP and GFR

Tellabs has enhanced its 8800 MSR with new capabilities that deliver Multilink PPP (ML-PPP) and Generic Framing Procedure (GFP) to enable transport of Ethernet traffic over traditional copper and SONET networks. In addition, service providers worldwide can carry traditional circuit-based traffic over new packet-based networks.

The Tellabs 8800 MSR uses a technology called Structure-Agnostic TDM over Packet (SAToP). Tellabs said SAToP provides relief by disguising traditional traffic to look like packet-based traffic. This enables service providers to carry traditional TDM traffic through packet-based network infrastructure, including Ethernet.
