Transparent PDH over Packet Transceivers

T1/E1

XCVR-TDM2GE, XCVR-TDM4GE

Ciena’s Transparent PDH over Packet Transceivers enable cost-effective transport of T1/E1 streams over packet. With many network operators transforming their networks to all-packet transport, TDM over packet emerges as a key enabler to efficiently migrate legacy services to the new packet-based infrastructure. Using a single unified network for both data and TDM transport can streamline operations and reduce capital and operational expenditures.
