The OptiX OSN 3500 is a new-generation 10G/2.5G transport platform that transmits multiple services at the convergence and core layers. The equipment supports packet switching and transmission, inherits all features of the MSTP technology, and integrates the SDH/PDH, Ethernet, WDM, ATM, ESCON/FC/FICON, DVB-ASI (Digital Video Broadcast-Asynchronous Serial Interface), and RPR technologies. Therefore, the equipment is compatible with conventional SDH and MSTP networks.
The equipment can be smoothly upgraded to a version that applies to intellectual optical transport networks. It is mainly used at the convergence layer and core layer of large-scale private networks, and uses the same types of boards as the OptiX OSN 9560/7 500/2500/1500 used at the convergence and core layers. In addition, the OptiX OSN 3500 supports ASON features, such as end-to-end automatic service configuration, SLA services, traffic engineering, timeslot fragment optimization, and mesh clock tracing.
The OptiX OSN 3500 supports the high precision clock (IEEE 1588v2) technology. This technology is especially applicable to industries such as electricity and finance that require accurate time synchronization.
- Highly Cost-Effective Platform
The OptiX OSN 9560, OptiX OSN 7500, OptiX OSN 3500, OptiX OSN 2500, and OptiX OSN 1500 can constitute a uniform platform because they use the same types of boards and software programs. This compatibility greatly reduces maintenance costs and outlays associated with stocking spare parts and boards.
