The Ericsson SPO 1400 is a family of multi-service and packet optical transport solutions for Metro Access networks providing carrier class Ethernet and TDM services.
The Ericsson SPO 1400 family of POTPs provides flexibility and scalability with its TDM-WDM-packet hybrid architecture with the simple and superior performance of connection-oriented Ethernet based on MPLS-TP (Transport Profile). As a result, it provides unified connectivity to core networks based on SDH, Ethernet or IP/MPLS. As a high-capacity converged platform for TDM and packet, it is ideal for simple and reliable optical transport of high-speed fixed access services and 2G/3G/4G Radio Access Network (RAN) backhaul. Its flexibility provides an efficient grooming function for metro traffic ensuring a low total cost of ownership (TCO) with high-performance reliability.
The SPO 1400 POTP products are perfect for network migration from legacy TDM to packet and for operators requiring a single platform for their fixed and mobile service transport on one network.
The SPO 1400 family of POTPs enables operators to optimize their network configuration for a low TCO. The Ericsson SPO 1400 family includes:
• Ericsson SPO 1460 POTP, 16 Slots
• Ericsson SPO 1410 POTP, 4 Slots
• Lower metro transport cost with a converged TDM-WDM-packet platform
