BrightLink Announces Lab Trials

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- BrightLink Networks Inc., a privately held optical networking company, is starting lab trials of its BOSS 1000 optical switch. The introduction of this switch improves carrier networks by eliminating costly, legacy equipment, and reduces the cost of provisioning lease line services. BrightLink built this switch to give Inter-Exchange carriers the on-demand ability to provision and protect services when and where they are needed, smoothly scaling bandwidth to meet demand. The BOSS 1000 is shipping to two prominent carrier labs in May for customer trials.

“BrightLink’s technology has produced a system that exactly meets the needs of carriers today,” said Harry Quackenboss, BrightLink’s chairman and chief executive officer. “With the BOSS 1000, carriers get immediate reduction in the cost of capital equipment and lease line provisioning. Our unique switch fabric architecture allows the system to grow in a “no fork lift” fashion as network capacity grows.”

re: BrightLink Announces Lab Trials LR,

We, the reading public, count on you for timely and frequent news stories. The industry is not quiet today, where are the stories? What, for example, is the deal with BrighLink? Why aren't they beholden to Moore's law? Come on, reading all the chat posts is killing me, I need news with a gossipy edge . . .

re: BrightLink Announces Lab Trials It seems like LR is simply on its way under. LR is a nice rag, and I hate to say it, however, it is a surprise that it is still here.

So, let us enjoy the chat as long as it goes, there is no reason to complain here.

Thanks,

Sounds good, I hope that doubling of your employee roster will result in doubling the coverage.

Thanks,

Just FYI, our roster of employees, like our traffic, has doubled since December. And yes, revenues are on the same track.

I wouldn't worry too much about LR.

re: BrightLink Announces Lab Trials It's interesting that despite doubling staff and revenue LR seems to be putting out half as much content...

A bit like Cisco?

I haven't noticed a dropoff in productivity here.

re: BrightLink Announces Lab Trials Are we on vacation? I wish. Quite the opposite. We're launching new sites and new newsletters in the next few weeks and months.

But the economy has slowed down a bit, and when the economy slows, so does the business news cycle.

Thanks for holding our feet to the fire, though. Gives me a warm feeling to know you're reading us so often.
