MONACO -- Nokia Siemens Networks today unveiled a new platform that simplifies large communications networks while addressing rising demand for more capacity. The next-generation packet optical transport solution (P-OTS) combines the intelligence needed to reliably send information where it’s needed with the huge scale and speed of optical fiber communications. This industry first brings closer a truly converged packet and optical network.

Nokia Siemens Networks’ next-generation P-OTS has been created by adding packet data handling functionality to the company’s hiT 7300 Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) platform. The result is that traffic can move more efficiently through an operator’s network, rather than needing to be processed by routers at each stage. This allows the network operator to address rising demand for bandwidth-intensive applications without having to undertake massive data traffic router capacity expansion. In return, valuable router resources can be dedicated to process higher-level, value-added services.

“With internet traffic growing fast and average revenues per subscriber declining, cost per bit is the most pressing issue for service providers,” said Uwe Fischer, head of Optical Networks Product Management at Nokia Siemens Networks. “This combination of MPLS-TP and optical technology allows the most cost-efficient transport of data traffic over a DWDM optical transport network. We allow service providers to implement a flexible transport architecture with the agility and scalability necessary to meet the dynamic requirements of their subscribers.”
