Universal Switching

Network operators have historically faced the challenge of deciding whether to build circuit or packet transport networks. Universal switching and universal transport platforms offer an innovative approach to networking solutions by providing completely protocol agnostic switching capabilities. With these solutions, network operators can groom traffic frame-by-frame on every port at any layer (L1-2.5) and change the way traffic is managed dynamically without the need for new hardware. Coriant universal transport solutions enable the most efficient network and the ability to dynamically adapt the network to meet today’s rapidly changing requirements.


Solution Benefits

  • Eliminate all switching boundaries and restrictions by allowing native switching and interworking on every universal module port

  • Maximize network resources by dynamically adapting to changing network conditions through a universal matrix

  • Improve overall network efficiency by providing aggregated handoffs to routers and maximizing utilization of both metro and core wavelengths

  • Provide traffic grooming at any layer irrespective of the physical interface and enable grooming of multiple protocols on a single port

  • Reduce CapEx and OpEx with a minimum number of highly flexible multi-service universal interface cards that support all applications

  • Enable Coriant CloudWave™ Optics for industry-leading optical technology proven in the world's largest mesh networks
