Tellabs introduced over a decade ago their Titan 5500 wideband digital cross-connect system in order to integrate voice, data, video and Internet services over a single fiber-optic network. AT the time (early 2000's), the idea of uniting these mediums through a singular network was unheard of and many believed that Tellabs was biting off more than they could chew. However, the Titan 5500 proved to be a powerhouse, enabling cable and wireless to increase networking strength and efficiency, optimizing its high-speed processors to improve internet connections to both business and customers.
Now, Tellabs has decided to improve on their design. Introducing the Titan 5500 NGX-S Transport switch. The idea for the upgrade helps businesses open up new streams of revenue, dramatically lower their capital and operating costs and simplify their migration into new service delivery modes and methods.
The Tellabs 5500 NGX-S switch supports 100 percent wideband and broadband in single, powerful and compact system. It saves 30 percent in both capital and operational expenditures by fully integrating bandwidth management with transport functions. It also shrinks the floor space usage by 75 percent of its first generation counterpart. The Titan 5500 system is the largest wideband digital cross-connect in the industry. It gives carriers the ability to transport 100 gigabits of data per second, or approximately 688,000 simultaneous Internet calls. Its 2,048-port system allows service providers to improve reliability while reducing equipment and operations costs as their network grows to meet demand.
The Echo Cancellation and Voice Quality Enhancement (VQE) solutions in the 5500 system deliver superior voice quality in long-distance and wireless networks to over 300 customers in 70 countries. Tellabs uses an installed base of echo cancellation circuits to control echo and improve call quality. The Titan 5500's Digital Cross-Connect System (DCS) Integrated Voice Quality Enhancement (iVQE) allows the higher quality voice operations, making it the system of choice for businesses looking to enhance their customer relations and improve service.
In addition to echo control, the 5500 system provides acoustic control, noise reduction, adaptive gain and voice level controls.
- With acoustic control, there's protection from acoustic echo generated in wireless handsets and hands-free kits. This minimizes the clipping and static of most wireless devices and enhances double-talk performance.
- With noise reduction, background noise typically found in wireless environments is reduced, further improving call intelligibility.
- Adaptive gain enhances speech clarity in noisy environments by adjusting gain and spectral components of the signal going to and from the mobile user. This gives better quality voice calls with better clarity and cognition.
- Voice level controllers in the 5500 system adjust variations found in today's multi-vendor, interconnected networks. Speech levels are modified and optimized to reduce distortion at lower levels and by bringing out the lower voice levels to higher volume, all while preserving the call integrity. As a result, speech clarity and intelligibility are greatly enhanced by maintaining consistent levels throughout the network. This alone reduces operating, capital and maintenance costs for the long-term.
