Packet Optical Transport platforms

SPO 1400 family
The Ericsson SPO 1400 family is a modular, scalable Packet Optical Transport Platform (POTP)
featuring flexible, carrier class packet, OTN and optical switching capability in a single transport
platform. The SPO 1400 enables lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) for both network transfor-
mation and new network builds.

Key Features and Benefits of the Ericsson SPO 1400 Family

•Hybrid Packet / OTN switching Fabric – Does not lock operators into a single technology, avoiding the risk of
stranded network resources

•Integrated WDM functionality – avoids the need for unnecessary optical interfaces between aggregation
and transport equipment

•Full range of WDM options ranging from passive to fully dynamic high performance coherent DWDM –
Ensures operators have cost effective WDM solutions for all network applications

•Class leading port density – Reduces floor space cost

•Class leading power efficiency – Reduces power and cooling cost

•MEF Service Support E-Line, E-LAN and E-TREE – Enables access to new service revenues

•MPLS-TP-based L2VPNs and Circuit Emulation (CES) – Enables the delivery of advanced packet services

•Full OTN switching at ODU-0 granularity – Enables delivery of high value, low latency premium services as
well as wholesale services

•100G interfaces featuring coherent technology ensure SPO 1400 is ready to meet the future
capacity requirements.

•Common network management for OPEX efficiency
