CALIENT Technologies Adds Security and Flexibility to FiberConnect 320X

By admin, January 19, 2012 8:14 pm

CALIENT Technologies, Inc., an expert in adaptive photonic switching technology, announced a software upgrade for its FiberConnect 320X (FC320X) switches. 

In a press release, the company explained that version 2.4 of the FC320X operating software will improve security in multi-tenant applications and add new configuration flexibility.

The FC320X operating software is used for port group management in multi-tenant applications where secure virtual networks must be built and managed independently.

The FiberConnect 320X, which features expanded virtualization, can be used to create port groups of any number of ports. It also allows specific user to manage and view traffic from that port group.

The port group management feature is especially relevant for government applications that involve multiple security clearance levels. casino online .info/”>justin-bieber-news.info has joined the ranks of stars speaking out against bullying.. According to Calient, the port group management feature of FC320X supports seven user classification levels by segregating the entire management into several security clearance levels.

“The FiberConnect 320X is the highest density photonic switch on the market and the expanded virtualization features provide the security needed to truly make the best use of that density in government applications,” director of product marketing at CALIENT Daniel Tardent noted in a statement.

CALIENT’s 3D microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology based FiberConnect 320X platform is equipped with 640 fiber terminations or 320 ports (transmit and receive). The technology makes use of silicon micro mirrors to switch incoming fiber-optic signals from port to port. Serving the industry for eight years, the product has an installed base of 80,000 fiber terminations, company officials said in a press release.

Another benefit of the software is its ease of installation. The software comes with a pre-configuration mode that allows the switch to be set up using dark fiber. Previously, the FiberConnect 320X needed lit fiber to be configured.

Version 2.4 of the software also features a new graphical user interface (GUI), which offers an improved snapshot of all the ports with color coordinated statuses and a simplified process of enabling cross-connections. online casino canada . With the upgraded software, it takes as little as three clicks to view the entire process.

Telecom users are expected to gain from the software’s expanded TL1 commands, which facilitate better switch information in telecom networks that leverage the TL1 management protocol.

Version 2.4 of the software is now shipping with all FiberConnect 320X switches and is available for field upgrades.

In separate news, CALIENT Technologies announced the deployment of FiberConnect 320X photonic switch by Southern Cross Cable Networks, a trans-Pacific bandwidth wholesaler. The installation is expected to give Southern Cross the capability to reconfigure its fiber network in seconds, adding further protection in the event of fiber breaks or repeater/transponder failures.

Southern Cross Cable Networks Deploys CALIENT FiberConnect 320X Photonic Switch

By admin, January 19, 2012 9:36 am

CALIENT has announced that its FiberConnect 320X photonic switch will help trans-Pacific bandwidth wholesaler Southern Cross Cable Networks remotely reconfigure its fiber network within seconds. This will result in significant time and cost savings for Southern Cross.

CALIENT explained that it developed the FiberConnect 320X photonic switch utilizing its core 3D Optical MEMS technology, silicon micro mirrors, to switch fiber-optic photons. It is built with high reliability and redundancy for mission-critical carrier applications. The FiberConnect 320X is one of the solutions from the company that bring the benefits of photonic switching to new markets by providing dramatically smaller subsystem solutions enabling the company to engage new partnerships with other networking companies.

The Southern Cross Cable Network is a fully protected fiber-optic cable network that consists of 28,900 km of submarine and 1,600 km of terrestrial fiber optic cables and connects Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Hawaii directly to the U.S. west coast. With the FiberConnect 320X photonic switches, it will now be able to remotely configure optical connections in a timely manner.

Southern Cross asserted that even though 90 percent of its network is configured for automatic protection on self-healing rings, there is always a small chance of multiple failures that require redirection of traffic to maintain service. Until now this has been a manual intervention that would take time to implement.

After reviewing the vendors in the photonic switching space, Southern Cross came to the conclusion that CALIENT offered the best port density, price, and overall reputation and as a result it has now acquired and deployed their switches at all sites in its network.

Officials with CALIENT commented that in a network like Southern Cross Cable Networks, each fiber on the network is carrying approximately 40 DWDM wavelengths, so every minute wasted during an outage could cost thousands of dollars. Their FiberConnect 320X has proven itself at three of the Tier 1 carriers the U. Compass bank offers this bank account for people with bad free-credits-report.com ..
