Carrier access networks are built using a wide range of network protocols and services, requiring multiservice processors for protocol translation. Add/drop multiplexers, Multiservice Provisioning Platforms (MSPP), and other packet optical systems provide a key link between packet networks and time-division multiplex (TDM) networks.
