SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Corrigent Systems, a leading provider of packet transport solutions for next generation service provider networks, will discuss MPLS, Fibre Channel, Pseudo-wires and network convergence at Telecommunications industry events during September and October.

Event: MEF Workshop at Carrier Ethernet World Congress, Madrid Spain

Speech: Legacy service support and interworking

Speaker: Gady Rosenfeld, VP Marketing

Where: Auditorium Hotel, Madrid, Spain

When: Monday, September 25, 2006, 16:10


This session is part of a full-day workshop provided by the Metro Ethernet Forum ( to participants at the Carrier Ethernet World Congress with background on what is being done in this important standards group. The MEF is the primary organization providing specifications for Carrier Ethernet services. Incorporating work from the IEEE, ITU, OIF and others the MEF is developing specifications and a testing and certification program that will ensure interoperability of SLAs for Ethernet services for service providers worldwide.

Event: Carrier Ethernet World Congress, Madrid Spain

Speech: Evolving Carrier Ethernet to meet Operators' Next Generation Networking Requirements

Speaker: Gady Rosenfeld, VP Marketing

Where: Auditorium Hotel, Madrid, Spain

When: Tuesday, September 26, 2006, 17:10


What is the optimal mix of technologies today for operators to harness the benefits of Ethernet while maintaining carrier-class performance and keeping control of OpEx in their NGN. What roles will complementary technologies play in a full carrier-class solution? To what extent do new ITU-T and IEEE OAM standards address operators' management requirements? How are developments in MPLS technology likely to impact the development of Carrier Ethernet solutions?

Event: EANTC Interoperability Demo at CEWC

Where: Auditorium Hotel, Madrid, Spain

When: Tues - Thurs, September 26-28, 2006


Corrigent participate in a large interoperability demonstration sponsored by the European Advanced Network Test Center ( to showcase the delivery of Ethernet services. There will be demonstrations of: IPTV, VoIP, DIA, TDM over packet, Multiservice convergence, Ethernet OAM (per IEEE 802.1ag), Fault Management, Bandwidth Profiles, Service Performance, QoS, Point and Click provisioning, End-to-End Ethernet networking and other unique advantages.

Event: MPLS 2006 International Conference

Speech: MPLS and Carrier Ethernet Competing or Complementing Technologies

Speaker: Luis Aguirre-Torres, Director, Product Marketing

Where: Omni Shoreham Hotel, Washington, DC

When: Tuesday October 17, 11:00 a.m.


This presentation focuses on those network deployments where Carrier Ethernet has been chosen as the service enabling technology (e.g. Triple Play), and shows how in some cases MPLS control and forwarding plane can be used to enhance availability and manageability of the network. It also weights on the trade-offs of pairing both technologies in terms of complexity and expense. It explores the usefulness of MPLS OAM and MPLS FRR in next generation packet transport networks.

Event: InfoCom 2006

Where: Moscow, Russia

When: October 18 - 21, 2006


This is the 6th exhibition forum held by Ministry for Communications and Information Technology of Russia. InfoCom-2006 will simultaneously take place from 18th to 21st October 2006 in six federal districts of Russian Federation. In Moscow InfoCom-2006 will run at exhibition center CrocusEXPO.

Event: LightReading Ethernet Expo

Panel: Tomorrow's Transport Infrastructure: Sonet/SDH Transition to Carrier Ethernet
