Apollo's family of optical transport and switching platforms interwork seamlessly to provide scalable, high-density and energy-efficient solutions from access to core. Apollo enables service providers to deploy optical networks that continue lowering the cost per bit, while simultaneously providing packet services, high-efficiency end-to-end operations, and SDN applications. Apollo accomplishes this through its family of optical transport and switching platforms that interwork seamlessly to provide scalable, high-density, and energy-efficient solutions from the access to the core. CPE platforms extend solutions to the network edge. Adaptive 400G transmission and 16T OTN/packet switching, based on a universal fabric, can handle and groom even the heaviest traffic loads.

Carrier-grade multiservice provisioning platforms simplify the transport of TDM and packet services, decreasing time-to-market for new services, while boosting the flexbility of adding, migrating, or removing customers.
The Multiservice Access Node (MSAN) platform was designed to provide the full range of advanced broadband services. Suitable for deployment in central offices or remotely, they can support any mix of ADSL2+ or VDSL2 subscribers, making it an ideal choice for FTTC architectures.
