Southern Cross Cable Networks Deploys CALIENT FiberConnect 320X Photonic Switch

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 ..
