LGS, which serves the US government community and is a subsidiary of communications solutions provider Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE:ALU), has revealed that the Alcatel-Lucent 5ESS Switch has been certified as interoperable with the Defense Switched Network (DSN) by the U.
LGS said the 5ESS Switch has, as a result, been added to the DoD Approved Products List (APL).
Lucent Technologies 5E-XC high-capacity tandem switch supports up to 256,000 trunk lines, compared to 92,000 trunks on an existing 5ESS
It allows users to expand the capacity of the Lucent Technologies 5ESS
Digital Networking Unit-Sonet (DNU-S) switch by aggregating up to 28 asynchronous T1 lines into a synchronous STS-1 signal which then goes into the switch.
Data will be captured from the network's three switches -- Avaya G3r, Nortel DMS-100 Centrex, and Lucent 5ESS
Centrex --with expansion plans to include calling cards, cellular telephones and pager services.
This acceptance by RUS provides an important additional 'comfort factor' that reinforces our decision to replace our Lucent 5ESS
with the MetaSwitch VP3500.
