Under a separate agreement with ONI, Telseon began deploying ONI equipment in their networks in Q1 2001.
"We are pleased that Dynegy and Telseon selected ONI Systems to expand into the metropolitan area markets," said Hugh Martin, president, chairman and chief executive officer, ONI Systems. "ONI continues to be the choice for carriers and service providers because our metro solutions are designed with the flexibility, service transparency and dynamic provisioning needed to yield considerable competitive advantages."
"The ONI ONLINE transport platform offers Dynegy a leading edge product in the metropolitan market for optical networking solutions," said Larry McLernon, chairman and chief executive officer, Dynegy Global Communications. "We can now offer high bandwidth services providing flexibility to match our customers needs at cost levels materially below comparable technology now available. This directly benefits our customers and allows Dynegy to link the metropolitan networks to our existing long-haul network, as well as third party networks, to provide an end-to-end, scaleable optical solution utilizing the latest generation of optical components."
"Telseon is driving technology standards in the metropolitan networking market and has a history of partnering with leading vendors to catapult innovation and deliver customer-centric solutions," said John Kane, chief executive office at Telseon. "ONI Systems ONLINE platform passed our rigorous qualification process testing more than 20+ criteria and offers the highest wavelength density per rack unit, enabling us to increase the utilization of our existing fiber assets while reducing total network cost of ownership."
The ONLINE transport platform is a highly manageable and flexible platform for delivery of high bandwidth optical services. The ONLINE platform maximizes the fiber capacity using 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 technology, which is capable of simultaneously transporting up to 33 protected or 66 unprotected wavelengths per node and enable true optical service delivery by providing dynamic control of the optical layer. It is the only platform that supports both shared optical protection (O-BLSR) and dedicated optical protection (O-UPSR) with a failure recovery rate of 50 milliseconds or less. The ONLINE platform includes the ONWAVE(TM) family of products that efficiently groom lower speed services, such as Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and OC-3/12/48, into a wavelength to increase wavelength efficiency and system capacity. The ONLINE platform leverages the OPTX operating system for wavelength and services management.
