Multiple Service Packet Transport Platform OptiX PTN 960

OptiX PTN 960 is positioned at the network convergence or access layer, supports various services such as CES, ATM, Ethernet and L3VPN, and supports various interfaces with port rate up to 10GE.

  • Supports a maximum service switching capability of 56 Gbit/s.
  • Supports multiple transport services, such as CES and Ethernet.
  • Supports various service interfaces, such as GE, FE, E1, and STM-1.
  • Provides protection mechanisms for equipment, MPLS tunnels, PW, link, and node for complete equipment-level and network-level protection.
  • Provides layered OAM, such as MPLS-TP OAM, MPLS Tunnel OAM, PW OAM, service OAM, and port OAM, for fast fault detection and service protection.
  • Offers extensive QoS capabilities with different quality-of-service user classes.
  • Provides high-precision clock synchronization mechanisms, such as physical-layer clock synchronization and IEEE 1588v2 clock synchronization, for accurate and resilient service timing.
