Companies Announce Successful OC-192c Interoperability Testing
Between Optical and IP Layers
Corvis Corporation (NASDAQ NASDAQ
in full National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations
U.S. market for over-the-counter securities. Established in 1971 by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), NASDAQ is an automated quotation system that reports on :CORV), a leader in delivering intelligent all-optical networking solutions, and Juniper Networks Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR) is an information technology company based in Sunnyvale, California and founded in 1996. The company designs and sells Internet Protocol network products and services. , Inc., (NASDAQ:JNPR JNPR Juniper Networks, Inc. (stock symbol) ), a leading provider of next-generation IP infrastructure systems, today announced the successful completion of interoperability testing between 10 Gbps (OC-192c) all-optical and IP networking layers.
The successful testing marks a significant milestone in delivering higher speed and greater capacity network capabilities to carriers.
"The only way carriers can keep up with the tremendous growth of traffic is the combination of IP and optical networking Communications between computers, telephones and other electronic devices using light. An optical network is far more reliable and has far greater potential transmission capacity than networking in the electrical domain. See optical fiber. ," said Tom Gray, President, Network Services for FLAG Telecom. "The interoperability of OC-192c equipment demonstrated by Corvis and Juniper, two of the industry's pioneering companies, provides a roadmap of how to grow capacity while enabling new broadband services and applications."
The interoperability test included the successful transmission of 10 Gbps between Corvis' ultra long reach, all-optical transport system and Juniper Networks' M160(TM) Internet backbone (communications, networking) Internet backbone - High-speed networks that carry Internet traffic.
These communications networks are provided by companies such as AT&T, GTE, IBM, MCI, Netcom, Sprint, UUNET and consist of high-speed links in the T1, T3, OC1 and OC3 ranges. router. As part of the test, the M160(TM) router routed OC-192c data to Corvis' transport equipment, which, in turn, transmitted the data over an all-optical, 3,200 km mixed fiber type link with zero packet loss.
"Our customers require simple, highly scalable IP network solutions that deliver wirespeed 10 Gbps services across their optical backbones. Full interoperability between IP routers and DWDM (Dense WDM) The term given to wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) when significantly more channels were being added. Since WDM is increasingly more "dense" all the time, both terms are used synonymously. See WDM.
DWDM - wavelength division multiplexing equipment is essential for successful data transfer across these infrastructures," said Carl Showalter, Vice President of Marketing for Juniper Networks.
"Multi-terabit IP networks are experiencing exponential traffic growth rates Growth Rates
The compounded annualized rate of growth of a company's revenues, earnings, dividends, or other figures.
Remember, historically high growth rates don't always mean a high rate of growth looking into the future. ," said Dr. David Huber, President and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. of Corvis. "This integrated solution for transmitting high bandwidth services up to OC-192c capacity allows Corvis and Juniper to offer service providers a more efficient way to scale their networks."
The Juniper Networks M160(TM) Internet backbone router is the first router to support 10-Gbps OC-192c/STM-64 circuits, greatly simplifying capacity planning Determining the required future configuration of hardware and software for a network, datacenter or Web site. There are numerous capacity planning tools on the market used to monitor and analyze the performance of the current hardware and software. and administration of rapidly growing networks.
The Corvis system is the first to provide OC-192c long haul Long distance. Long haul implies traversing a state or a country. Contrast with short haul. and ultra-long haul capability, as well as the first to provide 2.4 Terabit capacity, all-optical switching and integrated network A network that supports both data and voice and/or different networking protocols. See converged network and new public network. management solutions required to deliver a broad range of services across an all-optical network and efficiently interconnect OC-192c Internet backbone routers.
Corvis Corporation is a provider of all-optical networks founded by Dr. David Huber, a pioneer in the field of optical communications Optical communications
The transmission of speech, data, video, and other information by means of the visible and the infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. . The company is revolutionizing the way communications traffic is moved in the new Internet-driven economy by deploying the industry's first all-optical network providing integrated all-optical switching, ultra-long distance transport and network management.
