Ericsson Debuts 320G Packet Optical Switch

Ericsson introduced its 320 Gbps optical packet transport switch designed to help operators as they transform their transport networks for new bandwidth-hungry services like high-definition IPTV and fixed-mobile network convergence.

Ericsson's carrier-class SPT 2700 platform integrates several technologies, including WDM, TDM and packet switching including the new MPLS-TP standard. Specifically, the SPT 2700 offers high-speed, high-capacity packet transport via a 320G packet switch (scalable to 800G), transport of legacy TDM traffic via a 120G SDH switch and optical scalability via integrated OTN switch and DWDM ROADM/WSS (Wavelength Selective Switch). The SPT 2700 will be commercially available from Q1 2009, with further feature upgrades scheduled for the second half of 2009. SPT 2700 is complemented by Ericsson's ServiceOn Optical OSS platform.

Andrea Spaccapietra, Head of Broadband Networks at Ericsson, says: "SPT 2700 is a perfect complement to our existing optical transport and Redback portfolio. This launch, following our demonstration of 100GbE transport technology in October, also highlights Ericsson's technology leadership in the new optical arena."http://www.ericsson.com

  • In October, Ericsson demonstrated 100GbE transport technology on its existing WDM solution, Marconi MHL 3000, to several customers in Italy.
