Nokia recently announced an expansion of its flagship optical product family to help operators build end-to-end cloud service delivery networks.
According to Nokia, the new solutions and capabilities allow operators to scale their networks across premises access, metro aggregation and long haul data center interconnect (DCI).
As enterprises adopt cloud IT services at a rapid pace and digital media continues to dominate consumer entertainment, cloud and content providers are evolving their networks to ensure a better user experience. Increasingly, this involves distributing content and online services from continental mega data centers to metro and regional edge data centers and co-location facilities where the user experience is improved via lower latency and higher access bandwidth.
Nokia said it aims to help network operators build these end-to-end, high-capacity cloud connectivity networks with an expansion of the 1830 family of products to include carrier Ethernet and wavelength services delivery with the 1830 Photonic Service Demarcation (PSD), as well as high performance DCI in the 1830 Photonic Service Interconnect (PSI). All new capabilities will be available in the first half of 2017.
