The A-series 2200 brings the necessary horsepower to the network to fuel demanding business applications, handles voice and data, and also offers high levels of reliability, scalability and security, said Nokia Siemens Networks.

The company claims that the A-series 2200 provides an effective bridge between an existing TDM network and the next-generation ethernet transport network for enterprises. It brings many benefits: it combines the best of SDH carrier-class security and data transport capabilities. Additionally, it enables cost efficiencies, as a single hardware device can carry both voice and data traffic, and the architecture enables traffic at lower costs, added Nokia Siemens Networks.

It is reported that with a maximum switching capacity of 24Gb per second, the A-series 2200 provides the support to handle even most demanding applications such as voice, video or storage area networks.

According to Nokia Siemens Networks, the solution comes with redundant power supplies and fans and offers resilience and survivability mechanisms to ensure smooth service provisioning. It offers carrier-grade service level agreement with 50 milliseconds protection with committed information rate and it is a scalable solution to more than 5,000 network elements.
