PacketLight Networks offers metro and long-haul 100G muxponder/transponder
PacketLight Networks says it now offers the first standards-based, 1RU 100G muxponder/transponder for metro and long-haul applications. The OIF-compliant PL-1000GM/GT aggregates multirate and multiprotocol 10G and 40G services into a 100G OTU4 uplink trunk.PacketLight offers two 100-Gbps variants:A 100G muxponder for metro networks that reach up to 480 km. A 100G muxponder/transponder that can reach up to 2,500 km for ultra-long-haul networks.Both configurations offer multirate transport capability and a smooth transition from 10G/40G to 100G client interfaces, PacketLight says. Both also can operate over existing 10G networks.PacketLight integrates up to two optical amplifiers, mux/demux, and dispersion compensation modules if needed in the same 1U chassis. The PL-1000GM/GT integrates with PacketLight’s PL-2000 and PL-1000TN.PL-1000GM/GT offers GFEC for standards-based G.709 100G forward error correction (FEC). Additionally, PL-1000GM/GT can be managed remotely via either in-band or out-of-band optical supervisory channel (OSC).The new product benefits from PacketLight’s Web-based management tool and LightWatch NMS/EMS systems."100G technology has reached the maturity level where it has been standardized by the optical community. Therefore, today’s standards-based optical infrastructure offers no limitations and overcomes the interoperability issues,” stated Koby Reshef, PacketLight’s CEO. “At PacketLight, we identified two market segments which will adopt the 100G technology: metro networks and carrier long-haul. These segments have different requirements and challenges. We built solutions addressing both of the segment needs within the same footprint and under common NMS platform."
Cable&Wireless adds 100 Gbps to Hong Kong and Singapore nets
Cable&Wireless Worldwide, whose addition of 100-Gbps to certain European routes was announced last month (see “Cable&Wireless Worldwide chooses Ciena for 100-Gbps link”), has added similar capabilities to metro networks in Hong Kong and Singapore. As with the European deployment, Cable&Wireless will leverage Ciena Corp.’s (NASDAQ: CIEN) 6500 Packet-Optical Platform.The live metro networks are based on a mesh architecture. Ciena says its engineering and consultative approach to the project enabled the company to work closely with the carrier to develop a deployment strategy that would meet the timelines required to support Cable&Wireless’s presence and competitive position in Asia. The project included planning for services supported by the carrier’s current metro ring architectures, which are based on Ciena’s 4200 Advanced Services Platform. This approach ensured a smooth upgrade to 100G and seamless transition for existing customers as the carrier evolves toward its next-generation mesh network, Ciena says.“Hong Kong and Singapore are both dynamic markets experiencing an explosive demand for bandwidth,” commented Gavin Tait, director, network planning and implementation, Asia, at the carrier. “Cable&Wireless Worldwide is committed to being ahead of the curve with the most reliable, flexible, and scalable network infrastructure that will fuel the success of our enterprise customers in those markets. We have partnered with Ciena to allow us to rapidly launch high-capacity services, remaining ahead of the competition and securing key enterprise customers.”
Farmers Mutual Telephone delivers cell-site backhaul services via ADTRAN Optical Networking Edge
ADTRAN Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN) says that Farmers Mutual Telephone Co. (FMTC) in Northwest Ohio will use the systems provider’s Optical Networking Edge (ONE) technology to supply wireless services and cell-site backhaul for Tier 1 mobile operators.FMTC is a partner in Ridgeville Telephone’s 10-Gbps fiber-optic transport network. ADTRAN recently announced that Ridgeville has deployed the ONE technology as part of a network expansion project (see “Ridgeville Telephone chooses ADTRAN for fiber network expansion”). FMTC will benefit from the wavelength and Ethernet switching separation features of the newly deployed ONE capabilities, ADTRAN asserts. FMTC also will use ADTRAN’s Advanced Operational Environment (AOE) to monitor and optimize wavelength service capabilities.“The service isolation capability of ADTRAN’s ONE solution was an important feature in our decision making process. To remain competitive in our market we need the ability to add new services while maintaining the stringent SLAs of both the new and existing service offers,” said Eric Damman, general manager at Farmers Mutual Telephone. “ADTRAN is enabling us to launch new, scalable high-performance services with a faster time to revenue.”
