Ciena’s 6500 Packet Transport System (PTS) addresses the growing need to maintain profitable delivery of TDM services while future-proofing investments toward an all-packet network modernization.
To this day, network providers continue to add to their Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) infrastructure—an investment that is getting more expensive to run and operate. Clearly doing more of the same only increases OPEX due to expensive spares and higher maintenance, hard-to-find legacy skill sets, and manual operations.
