ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Coastcom, a leading manufacturer and supplier of metro/access network solutions for connecting voice, data, and video services to public and private networks, announced today it has broadened its optical product line to include the RazorAccess 1600 Multi-Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP), and the RazorAccess 800 Next-Generation SONET/SDH Add Drop Multiplexer (ADM).

The RazorAccess 1600 combines the functionality of a SONET/SDH ADM, Layer 2 Ethernet Switch, Channel Bank, and Digital Access Cross-Connect (DACS) in a single rack unit (1 RU) over an optical trunk with speeds up to OC-12/STM-4. In addition, the RazorAccess 1600 platform allows for a variety of voice and data services via plug-in modules that can be added and removed as required. This allows service providers to optimize their networks by installing only the actual services required when they are required (pay as you grow).

The RazorAccess 800 platform delivers Gigabit Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and TDM services from a very compact (1/2 RU wide) platform, that is well positioned for 3G and Broadband wireless backhaul. With a list price of $4,995.00, the RazorAccess 800 is a very cost effective add/drop multiplexer that combines nxT1/E1 digital access and Ethernet Virtual Concatenation (VCAT) with powerful grooming and cross connect capabilities.

According to Arturo Zárate, Coastcom’s Director of Marketing and Business Development, “The RazorAccess 1600 & RazorAccess 800 provide a common Ethernet over SONET/SDH (EoS) transport network infrastructure that can enable an efficient migration to next-generation packet interfaces as well as more economical delivery of traditional TDM and leased line interfaces.”
