STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) unveils its new Marconi OMS 1400 Optical MultiService Metro-Edge product at this week's Transport Network Strategies conference in Barcelona. The OMS 1400 expands the packet evolution capabilities of Ericsson's optical networking portfolio and strengthens its Full Service Broadband offering.

As part of Ericsson's optical networking portfolio, the OMS 1400 plays an important role in building connectivity in metro-edge transport networks. It meets the demand from operators to evolve their network to support a new mix of services and traffic types, with dexterous backhaul connectivity that can be TDM or Ethernet-based.

Ericsson's Full Service Broadband offering is a framework for the provisioning of one single network optimised for packet-based services across all residential, business and mobile applications. OMS 1400 is a key element of this offering and enables such packet-service connectivity, meeting operator demand for telecom quality, flexibility and scalability. As part of Ericsson's broadband portfolio, the OMS 1400 complements other Ericsson offerings such as its microwave, broadband access and service-edge platforms for Ethernet networking.

Alfredo Viglienzoni, Head of Product Line Optical Networks at Ericsson, says: "The Marconi OMS 1400 greatly enhances our metro portfolio, and adds to our ability to support customers in their evolution to packet-oriented networking. It delivers technological advances which enable network operators to evolve their business models to be based on this mix of services, and to focus on a more optimized cost of ownership for their networks.
