ECI TELECOM'S LIGHTSCAPE NETWORKS CONTINUES MOMENTUM WITH ITS XDM OPTICAL NETWORKING PLATFORM.
Further highlighting the XDM's success and market penetration, a January 2002 Morgan Stanley report cited Lightscape Networks' XDM metro optical platform as the "finest converged product" in the metro DWDM and next-generation SONET/SDH market. The report, titled "The Metro Optical Report: The Return of the RBOCs," examined products from all major optical vendors worldwide. Among other findings, the report concluded that next-generation SONET and metro DWDM equipment will converge as transport and service layers unify, allowing carriers to deploy the most cost-effective solution while eliminating complex network management systems, expensive optical interfaces and unnecessary network elements.
"Lightscape Networks has developed a product that integrates a powerful SONET/SDH switching fabric with multi-wavelength capability," said David Jackson, optical networking systems and components analyst for Morgan Stanley.
The XDM's pioneering single architecture approach converges intelligent metro/regional DWDM optical networking capabilities, multiple SONET/SDH rings, digital cross connects (DXC), carrier-class Gigabit Ethernet and on-demand network provisioning within a single device. The XDM's unique "Build-as-you-GrowTM" architecture allows service providers to expand their networks gradually and steadily according to customer bandwidth and service demands. With this approach, carriers can utilize the various technologies and features of the XDM that their network requires while allowing them to make a smooth, in-service transition to alternate network topologies and services in a cost-effective manner.
"Last year's tremendous growth in XDM sales and global customer deployments in such a competitive market shows that we are bucking the industry trend and highlights the fact that we have the most advanced and flexible metro solutions available today," said Ido Gur, Vice President of Marketing, Lightscape Networks. "Today's carriers are looking for an experienced company to meet their network needs and a product that can cost-effectively grow with their network to meet increased bandwidth and service demands. Lightscape Networks is now in extensive field trials with the major incumbent operators worldwide. We look forward to continuing our penetration of the North American, European and Asian markets throughout 2002."
