Ekinops Introduces a Multi-Protocol ADM Solution for Converged Traffic Transport Using Only a Single Wavelength and a Single Fiber

PARIS, October 16, 2009 – Ekinops, a leading optical transport vendor for service providers and enterprises, has introduced a multi-protocol/multi-rate ADM (add/drop multiplexing) capability that will dramatically reduce the cost of aggregating converged traffic in business Ethernet, triple-play, wireless backhaul, and broadband backhaul applications.

This solution allows for many different protocols (uncompressed video, Fibre Channel, Ethernet, SONET/SDH) and many different rates (ranging from as low as 10/100 or OC-3/STM-1) to be aggregated over a single 10G wavelength from multiple sites. In addition, this capability can utilize Ekinops’ high-density single fiber capability to cut infrastructure costs in half.

This capability can be used in ring and linear configurations. In addition, the Ekinops solution requires far fewer service cards to achieve aggregation of multiple service types.

Alternative transport solutions require as much as an additional wavelength for each service type, but thanks to Ekinops’ unique DynaMux® dynamic multiplexing capability, the Ekinops more
