Ethernet/TDM traffic split in a typical network infrastructure 4 . The introduction of carrier-grade switches and routers brought an alternative with a much higher capacity and lower cost. A closer look at the actual business that is deriving from the TDM leased-lines reflects this trend .The PTN market opportunity TDM services and SDH technologies were originally designed to deliver voice. TDM is considered as reliable and a secure connection. and therefore it was widely adopted as a VPN enabler.most of the TDM services are actually Ethernet-over-SDH services that are still producing good margins to the telecom service providers.less than 10 percent in most cases. The result was acceptance of Ethernet services for enterprise VPN and residential triple-play service. 155Mbps that is achievable with an STM-1 connection is a popular example. but its capacity in the entire network is very small . Voice is a mandatory service with specific requirements. A long term view on the traffic that networks will need to deliver is clear Ethernet is the growth engine. But the increased competition (a practical alternative for an enterprise to replace its STM-1 service with Gigabit Ethernet service) with the exponential growth of packet services is changing the overall picture. and Ethernet will capture most of the traffic in the next-generation networks. Most of TDM services today are leased-lined that enterprises consume to connect their remote offices.
Packet-Optical. This includes the emerging Packet-Optical Transport System (P-OTS) and Carrier Ethernet Switches and Routers (CESR) markets. SDH market is declining – from ~ $4 billion market today to $2 billion market at 2013. both within the CESR and P-OTS markets is to enable unified transport layer for mobile backhaul. SDH migration. The CESR market today captures ~ $2 billion and is expected to reach $3 billion at 2014. and Carrier Ethernet applications. The PTN market opportunity.Industry analysts describe this dramatic shift from legacy TDM circuits to packet based networks in their market segmentation and forecasts. New investments are allocated in packet based networking solutions. SDH gear that was heavily deployed as networking transport layer is approaching its end-of-life / end-of-service and is not capable of delivering large capacity of Ethernet services over its circuits. As a result. this market is expected to grow aggressively in the near future. Analyst (HeavyReading) forecast on SDH. and the P-OTS market with its hybrid WDM + SDH + MPLS vision is starting to capture significant role as next-generation MSPP. and Carrier Ethernet markets 5 .

MPLS and MPLSTP technologies that are adopted by fixed-line service providers are offering a field-proven and cost effective basis for PTN based mobile backhauling. including cell site. From the CSG. hub site. End-to-end PTN for mobile. PTN aggregation layer is typically based on MPLS-TP technology and includes Hub Site Gateway (HSG) switch and transport capabilities to effectively deliver all the traffic to centralized controllers. The roadmap to fulfill the clear needs and vision includes technical challenges such as how to deliver significantly more data while preserving the synchronous nature of the network and how to perform phased migration from a TDM network to a packet-based network. Massive delivery of internet and TV content is impacting the mobile backhauling infrastructure that was originally built to handle voice traffic. A typical PTN architecture for mobile backhauling includes the access network where Ethernet and PDH devices are located below the antennas and receives all the voice and data services. In the access network. Note that the Ethernet traffic doesn’t need the gateway functionality and is simply being carried over MPLS PW towards the controller at the backbone. a Cell Site Gateway (CSG) switch is encapsulating E1 and Ethernet to packets. Aggregation Site gateway (ASG) is handling all incoming traffic and sends Ethernet/SDH/ATM services to their appropriate controller.Orckit-Corrigent PTN solution for mobile networks One of the most important growth engines for mobile operators is their ability to offer any type of content.

With Orckit-Corrigent PTN solution. the customer was able to smoothly migrate its legacy network and to benefit from End-to-end packet network that handles all Ethernet. digital TV and IPTV. The networking upgrade includes the build-out of a standard and interoperable PTN that will deliver any Ethernet as well as TDM traffic arriving from the access network. upgrading the networking infrastructure was done to enable significant traffic growth. As part of the service provider’s continuous expansion. SDH and PDH services Preserving the TDM subscribers.
add Ethernet services on Ethernet infrastructure and carry all the legacy services on the new and unified networking layer. Networking upgrade is starting with additional linecards on the existing network elements and even additional rings. another option would be to embed packet technologies such as Ethernet and MPLS / MPLS-TP into the traditional transport systems.Orckit-Corrigent PTN solution for SDH and PDH migration It is common knowledge that telecommunication service providers worldwide have transport networks that were originally designed to deliver TDM services. Yet due to the exponential growth in data services we have experienced over the past few years. A typical TDM networking infrastructure is based on SDH rings. In order for telecom service providers to preserve their TDM services. In line. upgrade is needed to support packet services over TDM rings. The PTN migration solution offers a natural. Since packet based services are growing exponentially. Access network connect the subscribers to PDH service such as E1 and E3. next-generation transport is facing scalability and cost challenges and therefore embedding packet capabilities. scalable and cost effective alternative – instead of adding Ethernet service on SDH infrastructure. One such approach would be to emulate TDM in packet-based switches and routers. Typical legacy transport network – SDH rings with WDM at the core 11 . it has become increasingly obvious that some kind of a migration plan is needed. Ethernet services are delivered over SDH. knowhow and investment.
SDH migration and the path towards unified PTN 12 . subscribers and services in the TDM access 4. At a cretin point. Step #1: Building MPLS / MPLS-TP aggregation network and offloading high capacity TDM traffic from the SDH backbone 2. future-proof solution both for legacy and next-generation services. The packetized TDM services are equivalent in their quality to those being provided by the traditional SDH networks. Step #2: Adding a multi-service access network to carry any service from the access network 3. With Orckit-Corrigent PTN solution. and adds packet synchronization and circuit emulation technologies to enable any SDH and PDH TDM services. Adding the Ethernet access network while preserving the legacy TDM access. since the TDM linecards can be added and removed at any time. the smooth SDH migration is done in the following few steps 1. Orckit-Corrigent PTN is a packet-based. is saving Capex and simplifies the solution. This approach provides the opportunity for smooth migration from a legacy TDM network to a packet network. Step #3: Phasing out the SDH backbone while preserving the investment. where SDH backbone Opex is higher than its running service and unified packet layer is in place – the complete migration towards unified PTN is done naturally. Step #4: Completing the phased migration with a standard and interoperable PTN This process has few valuable benefits to the telco service provider: starting with PTN at the metro and offloading SDH high capacity services gives the opportunity to experience the PTN layer without affecting the existing subscribers and services. Unlike MSPP and P-OTS alternatives. it is not an intermediate solution that optimizes specific mix of TDM and Ethernet.Orckit-Corrigent PTN solution for SDH and PDH migration uses the standard and interoperable PTN switches that were originally built for the delivery of large capacity packet services.
on the other hand. PTN adds TDM services over MPLS PW. The multiservice switching technology forces the P-OTS devices to act as two separate products in one cage with TDM traffic handled completely separate from the packet transport. running on a regular MPLS PW. is designed and optimized for metro applications. while P-OTS has dedicated hardware and software for TDM and Packet P-OTS is the technology of choice for multiservice national backbones which require integration between high capacity ROADM technology. PTN solution. Its unified packet switching keeps the system cost at a very low price point and the Opex is kept low with a single transport approach. packet transport and TDM transport in a single box. In P-OTS implementation. Converging the two technologies by means of Ethernet over SDH simply turns the P-OTS into a regular MSPP.Important note about SDH migration using PTN is that TDM service is encapsulated to a packet service. 13 . its major disadvantages become clear. When attempting to use the same technology for metro applications. When this service is removed – any other packet service it taking his place and resources. a hybrid TDM + packet hardware and software is being implemented and therefore each service has dedicated processing (this is done both in universal switching fabric and dual switching fabrics). however.

Ethernet Tree (E-Tree) services for point-to-multipoint/hub-and-spoke connections. Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) has defined the de-facto services terminology for Ethernet-based VPN services. Therefore.Orckit-Corrigent PTN solution for Carrier Ethernet enterprise and residential applications Enterprises consume Ethernet connectivity services from telecommunication service providers and demand strict service level agreement (SLA). residential triple-play is a very popular term that includes voice (VoIP). The most popular terms include: Ethernet Line (E-Line) service for point-to-point connections. connection-oriented Ethernet and MPLS / MPLS-TP technologies are the natural choice at metro area networks. This means that the required networking infrastructure needs to provide advanced quality of service (QoS). and data (high speed internet) services to a large number of household subscribers. While small enterprises generally consume IP/Layer 3 VPN services. and scale advantages. In addition. and reliability mechanisms. metro area network needs carrier-grade switches and routers with connection-oriented technologies. MPLS is the dominant technology in Packet Transport Networks and since the technology is standard and interoperable. A typical metro area network includes one or more levels of aggregation and therefore a high granularity of Ethernet interfaces and switching capacity is essential. In addition to enterprise VPN services.
