GENBAND and Resolute Announce Pseudowire Interoperability for End-to-End Circuit Emulation Solutions.
ATLANTA & PLANO, Texas -- GENBAND(TM) Inc., a leading provider of IMS-based telecommunications applications and infrastructure products enabling converged IP multimedia services, and Resolute Networks, a leading provider of circuit emulation pseudowire sub-system and technology solutions, today announced that the two companies have successfully completed extensive interoperability testing between Resolute's CMX-1614 Circuit Emulation Component Module and GENBAND's G6(R) Universal Media Gateway.

It allows an operator to package any service, legacy or emerging, and send it into the network in a common format that both preserves the service's original features and delivers the values of end-to-end OAM&P (operations, administration, maintenance, and provisioning). By using Resolute's CMX-1614 at the remote site with GENBAND's G6 Universal Media Gateway as the central site circuit emulation aggregator, network equipment providers can realize the benefits of pseudowire by giving service providers an open/standards-based platform that can be quickly deployed to address the needs for such services.
"The proving of interoperability between Resolute and GENBAND is an early indication of a trend that will have significant implications for the Circuit Emulation Services (CES) market," states Don Sparks, vice president of product management and architecture at GENBAND. "The rapid growth in packet-based infrastructure means that CES is ever more important to service providers that have decided to converge all their voice and data services. The huge installed base of TDM-based customer equipment and the increasing pressure to keep capex as low as possible means that forklift infrastructure replacement of enterprise voice and data equipment is a central concern for operators' customers. By using CES in the access network, service providers support their customers using existing equipment while utilizing new high performance access network infrastructure."
"This is another example of the maturity of the SAToP and CESoPSN circuit emulation standards," adds Ron Cohen cohen
