Alcatel Lucent 1603 SM

Alcatel Lucent 1603 SM

Alcatel-Lucent offers a third-gen SONET system built to provide leading flexibility and efficiency while making your entire network a little more reliable. The Alcatel Lucent 1603 SM leverages an innovative design that many other SONET systems have copied since its launch in the early 2000s.

The core benefit of a refurbished Alcatel-Lucent 1603 SM is that you pair affordability with its versatility and configuration options. The unit is a single-shelf 10.5-inch model that can be combined and integrated or interchanged across shelf slots for easy customization.

The flexibility of a used Alcatel-Lucent 1603 SM can instantly translate into reliability and big cost savings because you don’t need to change other underlying architecture and can quickly adjust to meet network changes.

Strength for Your Metro With The Alcatel Lucent 1603 SM

The Alcatel Lucent 1603 SM is designed to enhance optical transport and improve the high-speed capabilities of your metro markets. Ring rates reach up to OC-48 while it also has high-speed optics in OC-3 and OC-12 options. Models can also taper your routes to give customers the ability to upgrade ring segments to higher optic rates, but you still preserve the lower rate in the rest of your ring.

Give customers more control over how they grow and enhance their network, allowing you to be their preferred partner as their network improves and their customers increase.

Please note that Telmar purchased this unit and many more like it from Alcatel back in 2005. It provides ongoing support, but to avoid confusion with your system and networking needs, we recommend a platform- and OEM-neutral maintenance team from a supplier like Worldwide Supply. That way, you’re always covered no matter how businesses and equipment change hands.
