Multi-Service Platforms Allow You to do More with Less
Multi-service platforms provide more than one distinct communications service type over the same physical infrastructure, thereby simplifying operations and dramatically reducing both CAPEX and OPEX while helping to bring new services to market quickly and cost-effectively. The term “multi-service” suggests not only the existence of multiple traffic types within the network, but also the ability of a single network to support all of these applications without compromising quality of service for any of them.
Today’s next-generation multi-service platforms provide carrier-grade, Layer 3 awareness, such as IP and MPLS, in addition to traditional Layer 2 services. These next-generation platforms can take the form of ATM-, blended IP+ATM, IP/MPLS or Sonet/SDH-based networks in order to easily and efficiently improve the operational efficiency of the network while also adding increased functionality and flexibility. It also allows service providers to respond to technology changes more rapidly which, in turn, allows its customers to adopt new services at a much faster rate.
