The new 5E-XC (expanded capacity 5ESS-2000) Applications portfolio offers significantly expanded capacity and enhanced capabilities to the 5ESS switch. With 5E-XC (expanded capacity 5ESS-2000) hardware and software applications, you can profitably grow wireline or wireless business, and migrate to a more efficient IP network architecture by building on existing infrastructure. These new applications can help you cost-effectively migrate to converged voice and data networks while facilitating new revenue-generating services. Lucent Technologies has applied the latest Bell Laboratories innovations to the 5ESS switch to create this added performance and a powerful platform to help you respond to increased traffic demands and the need to implement next-generation network services. Our switching platforms are flexible, scalable and reliable. From the packet-ready 5E-XC (expanded capacity 5ESS-2000) High Capacity Switch to the 5ESS Very Compact Digital Exchange (VCDX) and BZ5000 switches, switching products help you deploy cost-effective, revenue-generating solutions for specific network requirements.
The 5E-XC applications provide the capacity and converged networking capabilities that exisitng networks need to implement Lucent's Accelerate Voice over IP solutions to rapidly deliver next-generation services that enterprises and consumers want.
New 5E-XC (expanded capacity 5ESS-2000) applications can help you significantly reduce operating expenses and increase opportunities to generate revenues. Modular hardware upgrades and software enhancements build on the proven platform of highly reliable and widely deployed 5ESS switch, the only switch to achieve 99.9999 percent availability for six consecutive years. These improvements, engineered by Bell Labs, deliver higher switching capacity and a ten-fold increase in the number of trunks per cabinet while using less space and power than before. Service Rich Software facilitates the introduction of new applications and services, without the cost of a switch retrofit. With the 5E-XC (expanded capacity 5ESS-2000) applications portfolio, you can leverage current technology and be ready to respond to opportunities presented by new technologies. This allows you to conserve capital while managing higher traffic levels and satisfying customer demands for expanded voice and data services.
The reliability of the 5ESS switch design is proven every day on approximately 6'000 host switches in more than 66 countries. According to analyses in U.S. FCC quality reports, the 5ESS switch is the only switch that has achieved 99.9999 percent availability for six consecutive years. The unique architecture of the 5ESS switch enables modular upgrades and implementation of multiple services on one switch, providing strong economies of scale in training, management, and spares. The switch uses industry standard interfaces to ensure interoperability. Fully functioning Standalone Remote Switches (SRS), including the Remote Line Unit (RLU), can be located up to 2'000 miles from the host switch. As a result, you can pursue business and network strategies without locking company into a specific technology and without interrupting current services.
5E-XC (expanded capacity 5ESS-2000) High Capacity Switching can help you reduce operating costs by up to 50% by:
5E-XC (expanded capacity 5ESS-2000) High Speed Trunking brings OC-3 capability to the 5ESS switch with the addition of a new Optical Interface Unit (OIU). The OIU provides a 10-fold increase in the number of trunks per cabinet - up to 120'000 - and flattens transport network. 5E-XC High Speed Trunking will be IP network compatible with the addition of IP circuit and signaling cards, which are expected to be available at the end of 2003. So you can continue to serve all of customers while you converge on a single IP network for voice and data services.
New 5E-XC Service Rich Software helps enable greater 5ESS switch capacity. It reduces software upgrade costs and speeds the introduction of new services through eight biannual feature releases. Each feature release will be automatically available to all customers retrofitting to the 5E-XC (expanded capacity 5ESS-2000) Service Rich Software and will offer immediate go-to-market advantages to gain new revenue from high demand service offerings.
5E-XC (expanded capacity 5ESS-2000) Service Rich Software, along with Enhanced Business Services (EBS), enables a new set of services and enhancements to existing services. These new capabilities can help you increase share of the enterprise market by enabling you to offer highly competitive IP network-based contact centers and IP Centrex services that include Internet desktops, call and presence management, instant messaging and Web-based customer contact. Enhancements to the most popular existing services are available for both consumer and enterprise markets in areas such as call forwarding, voice mail, call waiting and call transfer.
