Lucent Technologies this week unveiled products for optical and multiservice access.
The Metropolis ADM MultiService Mux enables operators to add data services to their existing metro optical networks and to increase the amount of traffic their networks can carry, Lucent says.
Metropolis ADM, available next month, is an Ethernet-over-SDH metro access multiplexer designed to enable service providers to migrate from existing TDM networks to "data-aware" packet networks. The product can be configured for use in both the metro core and metro access spaces, Lucent says.
The system is used in conjunction with the Lucent WaveStar TransLAN Card, which provides alternative multiplexing techniques for transport of data traffic over SDH.
Lucent also rolled out the AnyMedia Line Access Gateway, which enables service providers to deliver voice and data services to twice as many subscribers as Lucent's previous access platforms, the company says.
The AnyMedia Line Access Gateway is optimized for business customer growth and residential applications. The system supports voice applications, POTS and ISDN capabilities, as well as broadband applications, such as ADSL, G.lite, SDSL and g.shdsl, Lucent says.
The new AnyMedia platform also enables service providers to offer services, such as enhanced voice and messaging services, high-speed Internet, broadcast television and video-on-demand, Lucent says. The platform also supports video conferencing and multiline voice over IP services for business customers, the company says.
