Optical Communications Group Connects "Manhattan Bypass" Route to Europe to DuPont Fabros Technology’s NJ1 Data Center

By admin, June 27, 2012 2:04 pm

At the Telecom Exchange Press Room, Optical Communications Group, announced the commencement of the Manhattan Bypass” network at the DuPont Fabros Technology’s NJ1 data center. The privately held fiber optic connectivity provider was quick to highlight the uniqueness of the route from New Jersey to Europe?and how being located at Piscataway, NJ1, ?has become one of the most efficient data centers available in the Greater Metro New York Area.

“Our OCG route travels through New Jersey straight to Europe, avoiding the traditional and congested connection points within Manhattan,” states Brad Ickes, president of OCG. “With this diversity, NJ1 customers have added redundancy and security for their critical networks. This flexibility allows for primary network maintenance and cost effective bandwidth bursts.”

“Carriers continue to build their fiber networks to NJ1,” states Vinay Nagpal, director of Carrier Relations for DuPont Fabros Technology. “With over a dozen carriers operational at NJ1, we offer optimal connectivity options to several major financial centers including Mahwah, Carteret, Chicago, and now to European markets.”

OCG’s “Manhattan Bypass” has been designed to avoid the overcrowded routes in Manhattan by linking through the landing stations in Long Island. From NJ1, the unique path travels to Long Island via Staten Island and Brooklyn. casino online . Once it ends up at Long Island, the network connects to three transatlantic cables: AC-2/Yellow, Apollo and AC-1, which ensure low latency connectivity to Europe for enterprise and financial customers pursuing variety in the region.

Apart from the route to Europe, OCG is delivering diversity from NJ1 to Manhattan through an alternative network ring. The alternate New Jersey to Manhattan cable travels from NJ1 to Manhattan via Staten Island and Brooklyn and the network diversity provides redundancy for clients in the event of a power failure in Manhattan. Additionally, the route is obtainable for temporary connections to increase primary routes without earning substantial fees. The routes are available for customized periods of time, and availability is seldom an issue.

By admin, March 27, 2012 8:31 am

Köpings Kabel-TV AB, Swedish based cable TV operator delivering services across its widely distributed cable network throughout the city of Köping and the surrounding communities, has recently picked Calix (News – Alert) Unified Access solutions to offer advanced broadband services to its subscribers. best online casino .

The new deployment will enable 10,000 subscribers of Köpings Kabel to take advantage of gigabit passive optical network (GPON), point-to-point gigabit Ethernet (GE), and digital subscriber line (DSL), across both fiber and copper.

Daniel Nordqvist, chief technology officer of Köpings Kabel said that they realized that their existing platform could not scale to meet these demands, so they looked to Calix to provide them with a portfolio approach.

The Calix B6 and the 700GE family of optical network terminals (ONTs) will provide Köpings Kabel with the ability to grow as their customer base grows, and to migrate from GPON and DSL to point-two-point GE as the market demands. online slots . casino .

“As the broadband demands of our subscribers continued to grow in our community, we wanted to be able to take advantage of our existing cable ducting infrastructure to provide a wider range of services including ultra high-speed data, reliable voice, and advanced broadband TV services as well as our traditional channels,” said Nordqvist.

In addition, Köpings Kabel will also be using Calix’s B6 Ethernet Service Access Node (ESAN) and 700GE family of optical network terminals (ONTs). The B6/700GE solution offers flexible mix of technology options to efficiently and effectively meet ever-changing services and bandwidth requirements.

All these new deployments will help Köpings Kabel to operate a single network over a unified access platform combining GPON, point-to-point GE, and DSL technologies to deliver advanced broadband services.

The company will even use the fiber access technologies to serve most premises and DSL solutions over copper will be utilised for multiple dwelling units (MDUs), where fiber will be deployed to the building and services can then be relayed onwards via existing in-building copper infrastructure.

In other news, two Missouri electric cooperatives, Co-Mo Electric Cooperative and United Electric Cooperative, will be introducing fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) by leveraging the Calix Unified Access portfolio. Now more than 27,000 homes and businesses in Tipton, Maryville and surrounding regions will be offered superior broadband services.

Clearfield’s New Products Double Fiber Density and Lower Investments

By admin, February 2, 2012 5:24 pm

Clearfield (News – Alert), a provider of fiber management and connectivity platforms for communications providers, has unveiled two new products to address the communications industry’s need for increased fiber density.

The new multi-fiber push-on (MPO) which is equipped with the Clearview Cassette is expected to deliver 12 times the fiber connectivity than previously available solution. In addition, the second product, the Half-Wide LGX Blade, doubles optical component density for those requiring an LGX footprint.

“While today it may be difficult to imagine the application requirements that would require more than 20,000 ports of fiber connectivity on a single frame, that same thought was projected when the first high-count IFC cable was brought to market or the first 144-port fiber panel just ten years ago,” said Johnny Hill, chief operating officer for Clearfield, in a statement. By the way, known justin-bieber-news.info s music recently appeared in the centre of yet another scandal: call girl, with which the artist spent the night, posted a Net compromising video..

“Bandwidth requirements are driving the demand for fiber and forcing network managers to make room for more fiber everywhere in their networks,” Hill added. “A design principle of the FieldSmart product line is to lead the market in port density and access, and this new solution demonstrates our ongoing commitment.”

The company claims both the products are capable of reducing capital equipment costs by half when compared to a standard connector option for the identical port count.  Clearview Cassette, according to company officials, can deliver 12 units of self-contained fiber management within the device and provide the scalability and modularity of incremental fiber connectivity whenever it is required.

 Promising double optical component connectivity, the Half-Wide LGX Blade helps service providers address increasing bandwidth demands. Part of your plan- ning process requires that you use a variety of data recovery software free to test assumptions and think differently about the business..

While the traditional LGX footprint is preferred, either due to standardization on a previous design or existing architecture, service providers have been limited in the number of ports they could deploy, Hill added. “The introduction of our Half-Wide LGX Blade allows our customers to double the number of optical components deployed in the identical space without impairing access.”

The half-wide LGX blades offer all of Clearfield’s optical component technologies, including WDM, DWDM and optical circulators. The solution is housed in Clearfield’s 19” or 23” Optical Component Chassis.

Recently, Clearfield announced that its FieldSmart platform was selected by West Kentucky and Tennessee Telecommunications Cooperative (WK&T). The FieldSmart platform will be deployed in the central office of WK&T.

China, U.S. Powering Strong Broadband Adoption Rates

By admin, January 16, 2012 11:43 pm

More than 17 million households made the move to broadband in Q3 of 2011, marking the strongest quarterly growth rate in more than two years, according to a Broadband Forum study compiled by Point Topic.

The 3 percent quarterly increase brings the total number of global broadband subscribers up to 581.3 million, nearly 13 percent more than the third quarter of 2010. The gains were powered heavily by fiber deployments, which had a larger growth rate than any other traditional technology in the quarter.

DSL accounted for more lines added than fiber or cable modems, but only saw a 2 percent increase. Fiber now holds a 16 percent market share, compared to 61.5 percent for DSL and 19.5 percent for cable.

Hybrid fiber “will be where all the action is over the next few years,” Oliver Johnson, CEO of Point Topic, noted in a statement. “Consumers are showing signs of being ready to pay for faster connections and the hybrid solution set is a cost-effective way of getting relatively high speeds for them.”

Asia – and China in particular – continues to lead the globe in broadband deployments. More than 10 million broadband lines were added in Asia during the quarter, taking the total up to 246 million, or a whopping 42 percent of the global market. China accounts for well over half of all lines in Asia with 152 million, followed distantly by the U.S. with just over 90 million broadband lines.

We will probably have to wait until at least next year to see if President Obama’s broadband expansion plan stimulates the type of growth necessary to close the gap on China.

The global market for IPTV (News – Alert) technologies had a strong quarter, increasing 6 percent to 54.4 million subscribers. France and China continue to maintain the most robust IPTV markets, combining to account for around 42 million customers, but nations like the U.S., South Korea and Russia are starting to make strong moves.

“These are very healthy figures for Q3 and they demonstrate the ongoing strength of the broadband market,” added Robin Mersh, Broadband Forum (News – Alert) CEO.

Harmonic Releases New Outdoor Hub Platform

By admin, November 16, 2011 6:29 am

Harmonic (News – Alert) Inc, a premier provider of infrastructure that powers the video economy, has recently introduced its new Outdoor Hub platform.

Cable operators, with the help of this new Outdoor Hub platform, will be enabled to extend their existing HFC network without the expense and time delay associated with building facilities to house new hub functions.

The Outdoor Hub, when combined with Harmonic’s SUPRALink1550 nm transmission solution, will simplify architecture and streamline day-to-day operations, reducing capital and operating expenses.

Acting as an optical distribution point for downstream traffic and an aggregation point for upstream traffic, the Outdoor Hub will enable cable operators to push their fiber networks far beyond the traditional hub/headend infrastructure.

With the highly efficient fiber use enabled by the Outdoor Hub, operators will be able to deliver improved high speed internet, cable IPTV (News – Alert) and multiscreen services over their existing networks.

“In the past, cable service providers have constructed new buildings or climate-controlled vaults to house similar optical network functions. Such practices are expensive and delay service activation, due to the need for obtaining building permits,” said Gil Katz, vice president, cable solutions at Harmonic, in a release. “With the Outdoor Hub, operators now have the option of using a node enclosure to grow their networks, thereby minimizing capital expenditure and speeding up service delivery. online casino .”

The flexibility to be configured for a variety of functions is possessed by Outdoor Hubs. Each hub can house modules for optical switching, splitting, amplification, wavelength multiplexing and de-multiplexing, and re-lasing. These modules help operators to easily expand their existing nodes to Outdoor Hubs, which can then serve additional nodes.

In related news, Harmonic, a provider of video infrastructure solutions has launched its ProMedia Capture video ingest engine.
