Telecommunications service providers, as well as enterprise customers are constantly in search of new solutions for satisfying their users demands for higher bandwidths, more reliable services, and lower costs. As the leader in evolutionary optical networking, the Cisco Optical Networking Group family of products continues to develop solutions to better fulfill these requirements. The ONS 15454 leverages Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) technology to support the need for network reliability while integrating Gigabit Ethernet service interfaces for high bandwidth transport and a lower interface cost versus current TDM and POS interfaces.
The innovative design of the ONS 15454 SDH Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) enables an extraordinary level of integration. Unlike traditional ADMs that use separate DXCs as a point to interconnect networks, a single ONS 15454 SDH MSPP performs both digital cross connect and add/drop multiplexing functionality. This enables it to handle conversion of signals from el
