Alidian Adds Ethernet To Metro Platform

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Alidian Networks has introduced a combination of new hardware and software that will enable its Optical Service Node (OSN) family of optical add/drop multiplexer systems to bring to metro-area carrier networks the quality-of-service and transport efficiencies typically associated with access data networks. Alidian's new Ethernet Service Intelligence (ESI) software will allow the OSN family (the OSN 4200, 4400 and 4800, which support 10, 2O and 40 gigabits per second of service-bearing capacity, respectively) to perform service aggregation, rate control and QoS functions -- via standard Ethernet parameters such as IEEE 802.1Q/p, IP ToS and DiffServ. The software requires either Alidian's new four-port gigabit Ethernet service interface module, also being introduced today, or one of five existing lower-density Ethernet modules.
