Fujitsu, via Fujitsu Network Communications in the U.S., has upgraded its FLASHWAVE 4100 ES Micro Packet Optical Networking Platform (Packet ONP). The upcoming Version 9.1 of the packet-optical transport platform will add multipoint transmission capabilities to the system, enabling integrated OC-192 network access and OC-48 service access and Gigabit Ethernet service delivery. The ES Micro Packet ONP will support of Connection Oriented Ethernet (COE) as well as enable operators to offer Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) certified E-Line services.

The systems house expects the new capabilities to play particularly well in mobile backhaul applications as well as utilities’ smart grid networks. The ES Micro now can serve both legacy SONET and packet-based requirements.

The MEF-compliant COE service delivery capabilities provide deterministic quality-of-service performance for the Ethernet virtual connections to minimize packet loss, latency, and jitter. The integrated Y.1731 responder and DS1Network Interface Device eliminate the need for external NIDs while providing remote test access for Ethernet and DS1 services. The system supports sub-50-ms restoration times in the event of failure.

According to James Anthony, principal solutions architect, packet optical networking, at Fujitsu Network Communications, the ES Micro can work with the company’s EOX platform to create bridged Ethernet services for both Ethernet over SONET and Ethernet over copper applications. The growing demand for multipoint services was a driver for development of the Version 9.1 capabilities, he added.

The FLASHWAVE 4100 ES Micro Packet ONP occupies 2RU and comes in an environmentally hardened package to enable use in outdoor cabinets without additional heating or cooling. The system currently is in lab trials, with general availability expected early in the first quarter of next year.
