The TIM backbone is a Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) network, based on the latest generation of Nokia's 1830 Photonic Service Switch
. The network is fully automated and currently carries optical signals with a capacity of 100Gb/s over distances of up to 1,800km, and 200Gb/s up to 800km.
Powered by the Nokia 1830 Photonic Service Switch
, or PSS, the upgrade allows Liquid Telecom to meet the growing demand from its carrier, mobile operator and internet service provider, or CSP/ISP, customers for higher-capacity inter-networking services.

According to Alcatel-Lucent, its 1830 Photonic Service Switch
(PSS) platform will be the key element of the network transformation.
Alcatel-Lucent's 1830 Photonic Service Switch
(PSS), Bell Labs silicon innovations, and Alcatel-Lucent soft decision forward error correction (SD-FEC)-based 100G coherent optical technology will all feature under the contract.
Products from Nortel's Application Accelerator and Application Switch line, as well as the Virtual Service Switch
5000, would be included in the sale.
