This paper describes the design concept and realized functions of the first Optical Transport Network (OTN) based 43 Gbit/s line terminal. The system requirements of new generation networks are provided, and the functions needed in this line terminal are obtained from the requirements. The line terminal deploys Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) to handle client signals, and provides transparent high quality multiple services such as SONET/SDH and Gigabit Ethernet. The configuration and features of the actually fabricated system are described.
