NEC Corporation has launched two new additions to its AM3100 Series MSAN (Multi -Service Access Node) product range – the AM3110 and AM3160. NEC says The AM3100 series represents a generational shift in access technology with a total access platform family that meets all copper, fibre and wireless applications needs.
The AM3110 and AM3160 allow deep fibre deployment with lower incremental cost. One common platform for next generation services delivers lower OPEX through common spares, inventory and maintenance practices. Small form factor and card flexibility mean better matches for CAPEX to service growth, says the company.According to Richard Hanscott, Vice President, Network Solutions of NEC Europe, the design and implementation of Next Generation Network (NGN) technology is one of the most pressing issues facing telecommunications businesses today. “As we enter the third wave of broadband development, flexibility is the key. Continued cost pressure on operators and higher subscriber bandwidths drive deeper fibre penetration. In order to survive, operators will need to reinvent themselves and their revenue structures in order to address industry challenges and meet the increasing demands of their customers.”
“The scalability of the AM3100 series means greater throughput capacities for High Definition IPTV support and lower total cost of ownership – with extended platform life as densities and capacities evolve. This allows incremental migration to NextGen access services such as 10G-based PON services”, said Hanscott.
