OIF OTN switching implementation agreement promotes common switch fabrics
The Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) has approved an implementation agreement (IA) for an OTN-over-Packet-Fabric Protocol. The IA aims to make it easier for systems developers to create a single switching fabric for both Optical Transport Network (OTN) and packet-based traffic. The IA defines the mapping protocol for converting an OTN stream into packets while preserving its frequency and phase. The protocol can be implemented via ASSP, FPGA, or ASIC.The new IA culminates an effort that began in May of last year, according to the OIF’s Karl Gass. It leveraged the expertise of several OIF members, several of whom already had common fabric strategies. Gass admitted that an extensive amount of modeling and discussion was necessary to get potential competitors to agree on the specifications contained in the IA, which Gass described as leading to the most efficient and easy-to-implement approach of those considered.The new IA parallels similar work going on at a higher level within the ITU-T, Gass added.The OIF kicked off this effort in response to carriers who were looking for an efficient, common way to switch OTN and Ethernet/IP traffic over the same switch fabric. Several vendors offered separate switching fabrics for OTN and other traffic, which led to larger footprints and more power consumption than carriers wanted to support.“The IA will enable faster convergence of packet and OTN traffic which the industry needs,” said Eve Griliches, ACG Research analyst. “A common method of mapping and translating OTN into a packet fabric will help drive the cost of network equipment down for multiple switching options, and lay the groundwork for the growing converged IP+OTN networks.”
HickoryTech to acquire IdeaOne Telecom
Minnesota-based communications services provider HickoryTech Corp. (NASDAQ:HTCO) says it plans to further expand its service footprint by acquiring IdeaOne Telecom Group, LLC, a metro CLEC and fiber optic network services provider in Fargo, ND and Moorhead, MN. HickoryTech will pay at $28 million in cash, with “routine adjustments” for capital expenditures and working capital, the company says. “This acquisition further advances our strategy of growing our business and broadband services,” said John Finke, HickoryTech president and CEO. “Last year, we extended our fiber network to Fargo. This transaction gives us immediate access to the market, making our entire portfolio of business services available to IdeaOne customers. The completion of our broadband stimulus route from Brainerd, MN, to Fargo, ND, in 2012 will further enhance our capabilities and services in this market.” IdeaOne recorded fiscal 2010 revenue of $11.1 million, the majority of which was from business customers. HickoryTech expects to pick up approximately 1,900 business customers and 1,700 residential customers when the deal closes, a milestone expected to occur in the first quarter of next year. The company also will add 225 fiber route miles to its regional network, connecting 650 on-net fiber-lit buildings as well as colocation facilities.“We are confident HickoryTech and Enventis will provide quality support and expanded services to IdeaOne customers,” said Bob Johnson, IdeaOne president and chief executive officer. “Our customers and the greater Fargo and Moorhead area will benefit from the redundant, regional fiber network and expanded capabilities as these two companies join together. Like IdeaOne, HickoryTech is committed to providing local service and quality support to their customers.”
Indian Institute of Technology expands GPON network with Alphion
Alphion Corp. says that the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur will deploy Alphion’s GPON gear across its Kharagpur campus. The GPON infrastructure will link IIT Kharagpur’s departments, centers, schools, class rooms, and residences and for service deliver both from within the Kharagpur campus as well as the pan-India National Knowledge Network (NKN).“IIT Kharagpur is very excited to work with Alphion on the expansion of our access network” said Professor Damodar Acharya, director, IIT Kharagpur. “The Alphion GPON solution will allow us to provide a wide spectrum of broadband services in the Kharagpur campus including tele-education, Internet, cable video, IPTV, telephony, campus security, and WiFi hotspots. This optical fiber network connects to all hostels, enables WiFi hot spot connectivity, will be used to video stream courseware to students, and provides coverage to 30,000 people.” “We are pleased to have the opportunity to expand our GPON network solution on the IIT Kharagpur campus” commented Dr. Bharat P. Dave, Alphion chairman, president, and CEO. “The initial pilot program, deployed in 2009, demonstrated the capability of our GPON technology to deliver world-class network services. This new campus-wide deployment will extend the network to cover existing and new housing, classrooms, office space, and open areas.”
