Part of the Cisco Complete Optical Multiservice Edge and Transport product portfolio, the Cisco ONS 15600 Multiservice Switching Platform (MSSP) simplifies bandwidth management in the metro core by allowing service providers to integrate their metro core and metro edge networks, providing carrier-class availability, serviceability, software, and management throughout the network.
The Cisco ONS 15600 MSSP combines the functions of multiple metro systems, including SONET/SDH multiplexers and digital cross-connect network elements, together in one easy-to-use platform. It also supports all metro topologies, including point-to-point, linear add/drop, rings, and mesh.
Delivering scalability to 960-Gbps traffic in a single rack, the Cisco ONS 15600 MSSP complements the Cisco ONS 15454 SONET/SDH Multiservice Provisioning Platform. Using the same architecture and operating system allows service providers to simplify their metro networks and realize immediate cost, space, and operational benefits.
