Marconi OMS 1600

    Multi Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP) - Compact Metro Access

    The Marconi OMS 1600 Optical Multi-Service Metro is a compact and advanced multiservice transport and switching platform (MSTP/MSPP).

    Product description

    The Marconi OMS 1600 family is optimized for the delivery of a wide range of traditional and data services from an SDH or SDH/DWDM/OTN infrastructure. It enables operators to respond profitably to the demand for Full Service Broadband services.

    Marconi OMS 1600 enables significant network simplification, and rapid and efficient delivery of multiple services. It is a compact, multiservice transport and switching platform designed specifically for an environment of growing demand for new data services.
