CALGARY, Alberta -- Optimum Communications Services, Inc. (OCS) has been granted a patent on its innovation enabling realtime self-optimizing packet switching and transport networks. This patent on network traffic throughput maximization techniques utilized in OCS' Intelligent Transport Network(TM) (ITN) can be found with its US Patent Number 7,333,511 via http://patft.uspto.gov/netahtml/PTO/srchnum.htm.

This unique network optimization method of OCS' ITN automatically adjusts capacities of an 'adaptive-mesh' of dynamic-bandwidth Layer 1 circuits based on realtime traffic load variations between network access points. As a result, ITN continuously maximizes the network customer traffic throughput, while being packet-layer transparent and directly interoperable with common standard customer equipment, e.g. MPLS routers or Ethernet switches.

"OCS's latest patent represents an innovative, leading edge methodology that in lab testing has demonstrated fiber-optic wavelength efficiency gains of up to 20X over traditional methods, while maintaining Quality of Service levels" according to Zeus Kerravala, Yankee Group's Senior Vice President of Enterprise Research. "Disruptive technology such as this being introduced by OCS significantly drives down the cost of bandwidth, helping to 'commoditize' Mbit/s in the service delivery market similar to what has already occurred in the computer memory industry."
