MORRISTOWN, NJ—November 18, 2009—TM Forum, the world’s premier industry group focused on business effectiveness for the communications and media sectors, announced today the results of its latest Business Benchmarking study which uncovers a direct link between Communications Service Providers (CSPs) levels of unbilled revenue and the maturity of their revenue assurance programs. The study results are included in TM Forum’s latest Insights Business Intelligence Report, “Revenue Assurance: The Hidden Opportunity”.

In the highest-performing CSPs included more

Are We Ready for The Exabyte Tsunami? Not Without Network Enhancements and Standards, Industry Leaders Say

The consensus of more than 30 telecom industry executives participating in an executive roundtable hosted by DSM is that today’s broadband network infrastructure is not prepared for future bandwidth demands and that substantial performance enhancements and new standards are necessary to support the next generation of bandwidth-hungry applications.

Participants in the Designed for the Future Executive Roundtable – representing communications service providers, infrastructure vendors, fiber optic cable and optical fiber makers, industry association leaders, academics and media – addressed the ability of incumbent networks to support future bandwidth demand, what is and will be creating that demand, and the risks associated with not embracing industry standards. Designed for the Future was held Sept. 29th during the FTTH 2009 Conference in Houston, Texas.

“It is no secret that the network infrastructure in the U.S. is aging while applications are evolving beyond what the basic design network can ultimately support,” more

Transmode extends Multi-Service Muxponder technology to 10G for high-capacity Mobile Backhaul and NGN Services

Supercomm, Chicago and Stockholm, Sweden – 20th October 2009 – Transmode, a leading provider of optical networking solutions, today announced the launch of its next generation 10G Multi-Service Muxponder targeted for Mobile Backhaul and other Next Generation Network (NGN) migration applications.

The new 10G Multi-Service Muxponder (MS-MXP/10G) is ideally suited to both mobile backhaul applications and NGN migration projects within fixed networks where both legacy TDM traffic is required in parallel with Ethernet traffic. The MS-MXP/10G allows operators to economically and flexibly transport multiple services on the same 10G wavelength. All services are transported totally transparently, including network synchronization, which simplifies the network structure and OAM procedures.

The MS-MXP/10G extends Transmode’s existing and widely deployed Intelligent WDM (iWDM™) Multi-Service technology to 10 Gbit/s of capacity and is part of Transmode’s successful more
