Ciena extends Waveserver DCI platform into the long haul

The web-scale effect isn’t confined to metro networks – it is driving network providers to invest heavily in interconnecting data centres across long distances as well as in cities, says Ciena.

The vendor has responded to that need with plans to enhance the capabilities of its Waveserver data centre interconnect (DCI) platform with an expanded set of reach and capacity options.

Fujitsu embraces modularity with disaggregated optical architecture

Stepping away from traditional chassis-based designs, Fujitsu has launched a new optical platform based on functional disaggregation. The new 1FINITY platform, which will be available globally, will enable service providers to take advantage of flexibility and modularity in the hardware domain, complementing the flexibility and modularity that has been developed in software with software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualisation (NFV).

ZTE launches compact packet OTN platform

ZTE has released the ZXMP M721 CX66, a compact packet Optical Transport Network (OTN) platform at the WDM & Next-Generation Optical Networking Forum held in Nice, France.

With the global large-scale commercial deployment of LTE and the rapid development of over-the-top (OTT) services, the demand for flatter networks is forcing OTN-bearer networks to evolve into unified bearing networks. With this in mind, ZTE has developed its compact packet OTN platform product, the ZXMP M721 CX66, which integrates ODUk, packet, and virtual circuit (VC) crossing.

Polatis unveils 6000n all-optical protection services switch

All-optical switch specialist Polatis has launched the Polatis 6000n Protection Services Switch (PSS) for protection against fibre layer network failure. The PSS is designed to be a compact and cost-effective alternative to the 1+1 protection switch modules used in multiservice provisioning platforms to create redundant network paths for wavelength and dark fibre services.

Coriant enhances network flexibility with CloudWave Optics

Optical transport vendor Coriant has announced CloudWave Optics, a versatile suite of software-programmable photonic layer technologies that brings a new level of flexibility, efficiency, and scalability to next-generation optical transmission networks.

XKL unveils DarkStar DST10-10 optical capacity extender

The latest product from XKL LLC, a provider of enterprise fibre-optic networking systems, extends existing network elements creating new capacity on full or near-capacity core fibre-optic networks.

A progression of the company’s DarkStar optical networking suite, the DST10-10 is a plug-and-play device that adds to existing Layer 1 transport networks and boosts bandwidth by pressing unused WDM channels into service, significantly increasing network capacity.

Ekinops 200G muxponder targets data centre interconnect

To address the needs of data centre operators, Ekinops has introduced its new 200G muxponder. Powerful, compact and with very low energy consumption, this 200G muxponder enables a substantial increase in capacity of optical transport networks to meet the needs of the data centre interconnect (DCI) market.

Infinera adds 100 Gigabit Ethernet to Cloud Xpress family

Optical systems vendor Infinera has expanded its Cloud Xpress family of metro cloud platforms, designed to address the needs of cloud service providers, Internet content providers, Internet Exchange service providers, large enterprises and other large-scale data centre operators. This release adds a new Cloud Xpress platform with 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) client services in the same compact form factor along with enhanced functionality.

ADVA launches new NFV demarcation product family

ADVA Optical Networking introduced its new network functions virtualisation (NFV) product family to the industry at the Open Networking Summit (ONS) 2015. The ADVA FSP 150-GE110Pro Series is a unique multi-layer service demarcation product that has been specifically engineered to enable network operators to smoothly introduce NFV-based services.
