Paper Abstract

As the link and gateway between backbone network and access network, metro-network becomes next infrastructure hotpot for both telecom and datacom carriers. In the transport plane of metro network, there are many solution choices to meet the various needs of carriers and operators. One of these practical solutions is with the help of metro-oriented Multi-services Transport Platform (MSTP). Inheriting from SDH transmission system, MSTP can process packaged data traffics like Ethernet on L1/L2 layers and ATM cells as well as TDM voice traffic. There has been a trend that packet data service will be the dominate in a metro-network near future. More reliable and efficient packet processing function such as RPR and LCAS will be needed in MSTP equipment. With the development of ASON/ASTN technology, more intelligent functions originated from ASON/ASTN will be added to MSTP and ASON/ASTN will be the development direction of MSTP. With the transition process of metro-network bandwidth limit from electrical domain to optical domain, some WDM and electrical/optical hybrid cross-connection functions will be merged into MSTP as optional modules. Metro-oriented MSTP will act as major node equipment in metro-transport network.
