Optical Networking Edge (ONE)
Solutions for Service Provider
ADTRAN’s revolutionary Optical Networking Edge (ONE) solution provides operators with unmatched network access and edge scalability to deliver both legacy and emerging revenue generating services. It enables operators to bridge the gap between network access and transport, leverage their installed base and extend the bandwidth efficiencies of the core all the way to the optical edge.
Integrated into the Total Access 5000/5006, the ONE portfolio together with OPTI and NetVanta 8000 series provides a comprehensive service delivery over any infrastructure integrated with edge-optimized Packet Optical Transport and advanced management tools. It converges access and transport technologies needed to support the traffic explosion driven by video, mobile backhaul, and cloud services for both business (commercial), and residential customers. The integrated ONE solution delivers unified user experience and efficient network infrastructure by enabling service providers to mix and match Ethernet over Fiber or Copper, Active Ethernet, GPON, and xDSL with advanced transport technologies such as Connection Oriented Carrier Ethernet, SONET/SDH, OTN, WDM and mini-ROADM. ONE’s modular architecture enables carriers to realize faster time to revenue, simplified operations, and lower total network costs.
Converging Broadband and Ethernet Access with Packet Optical Networking:
The use of a 3G cellular service is a compelling alternative to traditional wireline solutions. With the use of the 3G NIM, NetVanta routers can use 3G CDMA cellular service as a primary Wide Area Network (WAN) connection, or as a backup/disaster recovery link. As a primary WAN connection, 3G is perfect for mobile or temporary sites needing connectivity or for locations where wired service is unavailable. In addition, the 3G NIM can deliver WAN connectivity in a fraction of the time required to install a traditional wire-line connection.
Delivering Scalable Reliability for Mobile Backhaul:
The relentless demand for premium video services has put a tremendous strain on network access infrastructures as service providers look to support the resulting backhaul traffic. The growing need to stay cost competitive in the mobile backhaul and residential broadband markets have service providers in need of an efficient solution that can successfully address both markets.
In the past, parallel networks were constructed to ensure each new service did not impact the quality of another—a method that is not only expensive to build and manage, but limits scalability. Now, service providers can eliminate the need for capital intensive overlays to support 4G backhaul services and grow their overall addressable market opportunity in both mobile and residential backhaul applications through scalable service separation. This approach delivers scalable reliability by extending MEF-certified, wavelength-separated Ethernet services to provide important service isolation - key for serving individual mobile network operator that may share a single cell site or simultaneously offer residential broadband or business Ethernet with wholesale backhaul services.
- Maintains a reliable, low cost connection between cell sites and mobile exchange
- Provides a scalable architecture supporting future growth in service, customer and network size
- Supports both legacy and next generation service (including synchronization) delivery and transport
- Assures compliance to Service Level Agreements via use of performance monitoring customer web-portal
- Minimizes the operational costs associated with end to end service activation, assurance and diagnostics
Effective Services Growth for Low Density Markets:
As next-generation Ethernet services begin to extend out from the metro network they will drive demand for versatile, cost-effective aggregation out at the network edge. The blurring of aggregation and transport networks occurs as WDM, OTN, SONET, ROADMs, MPLS-TP and other high performance optical services enhance Ethernet aggregation solutions. This creates a high-performance aggregation platform that will stem the surge of new services aggregation requirements.
Application and Benefits:
- Simplified aggregation of all residential, business and backhaul access services
- Increases services scalability, improves time to market
- Supports multi-service, multicustomer premium SLAs
- Reduces service down-time and MTTR
- Increases network flexibility, minimizes dark fiber utilization
- Lowers cost per new service installation
SONET/SDH to Packet Optical Migration:
TDM/PDH service expansion led to the deployment of SONET/SDH networks to support the ramp-up of new residential, commercial and mobile backhaul services. This expansion grew from ramping circuit-based T1, E1 and J1 services. This resulted in the deployment of many SONET/SDH networks to aggregate and transport these circuit-based services, many of which continue to deliver significant although declining revenue streams. Today, next-generation IP/Ethernet services are rapidly expanding as demand comes from almost every enterprise vertical ranging from healthcare to education and scaling to near gigabit per second speeds. Many analysts forecast Ethernet service revenue will grow to US$40 billion by 2015.
Service providers evolve their networks to Packet Optical technologies to improve upon the capabilities of their legacy, SONET/SDH networks to support this large influx of packet-based services. Benefits of migrating to packet optical networking are as follows:
- Simplified remote provisioning and performance monitoring tools eliminating truck rolls
- Reduced network complexity, space and power reduces operational cost
- Increased access, aggregation and transport service capacity expediting service delivery
- Improved network flexibility and simplified multi-service delivery (residential, commercial and backhaul)
