  • Overview

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

Product description

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

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