The July 4 holiday this week seemed to slow down the flow of network management news, but there were still a couple of noteworthy events in the space.
First up, Cornet Technology announced that it will showcase its IPGate products, as well as how those products function in real life applications, at an open house event next week. The open house, taking place at Cornet's Springfield, VA, facility, is planned for July 9-12. Each day will feature three sessions, with the first starting at 8:30 a.m. and the last ending at 4:30 p.m.
Specific offerings on showcase include Cornet's long haul protected radio communications, which allows an operator in a fixed location to connect with remote radios over IP networks in a virtual environment; TDM data transport over an IP network; and Virtual Matrix Switch, which relates to serial data and voice switching over an IP network.
In other news, FX Networks, a national network provider in New Zealand, selected the Infinera (News - Alert) DTN-X platform to build out its infrastructure. The Infinera DTN-X P-OTN platform builds upon the well-regarded Infinera DTN platform, and offers the scale, simplicity and efficiency of the Intelligent Transport Network, with speeds in the terabit range. Indeed, the platform allows operators to scale to 5 Tbps per bay today, with the possibility of 10 Tbps per bay and 100 Tbps in a multi-bay configuration in the future.
With these capabilities, the Infinera DTN-X platform is perfect for optimizing FX Networks' inter-city fiber optic network. Initially, the platform will allow the operator to offer 500 gigabit per second long haul super-channels, but FX Networks plans to scale to one terabit per second super-channels down the line. Meanwhile, DTN-X will also enable 10, 40, and 100 GbE services to a broad set of wholesale customers throughout New Zealand.
That's all for this week, but check out the Network Management Channel for more news in this space.
