Alidian DWDM Deployed in Korea

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The Korea Internet Neutral Exchange Center (KINX), has deployed Alidian Networks' Optical Service Network (OSN) 4200 metro DWDM (dense wave division multiplexing) systems to provide its customers with large-scale co-location, Internet connection and network management services.

OSN 4200 units have been installed to carry traffic between KINX's headquarters and its recently-opened network operations center in Seoul. The systems, each supporting multiple full-rate gigabit Ethernet interfaces over fiber- optic cable, are part of the KINX network designed and integrated by CommVerge Solutions, Inc., an Alidian value- added partner in Korea and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region. The OSN 4200 add/drop multiplexer platform supports up to 10 gigabits per second, or two protected wavelengths, of service-bearing capacity.

Oh-Jung Kwon, KINX president and CEO, said, "KINX selected Alidian's OSN product family based on two key factors. Alidian's WavePack technology optimizes fiber usage by allowing multiple gigabit Ethernet streams to be carried on a single wavelength. And the OSN family's high degree of flexibility and extendibility minimizes costs associated with scaling the network to meet future demand."
