STOCKHOLM -- Fujitsu has chosen the Intel Corporation's optical transport processor product line as a key component across their dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) platforms. The Intel(r) IXF30009 is the industry's first optical device that provides the full range of G.709 compliant Optical Transport Network (OTN) management features. These features will enhance the carriers' ability to cost effectively manage their network.

Optical transport processors are modular building blocks that enable networking equipment manufacturers to create standards-based products for metro, long-haul transport and DWDM systems, with shorter time-to-market and reduced development costs. Developers can use these components to build optical network solutions by using the OTN management features.

"In the last year, carriers and multi-service operators have asked specifically for OTN capabilities," said Minoru Takeno, group vice president, Photonic Systems Group, Fujitsu. "We chose the Intel optical transport processor product line because of its advanced OTN support, which enables us to build flexible and compact line cards for DWDM systems such as FLASHWAVE7500.* The Intel products allow us to standardize and offer transparent OTN services to the market early, while also reducing development and inventory costs."

"A close engagement between Intel and Fujitsu led to a robust and standards-based solution that allows Fujitsu to offer faster time to market and first to market advantage to its customers," said Howard Bubb, Intel vice president and general manager of the Communications Infrastructure Group. "By using Intel components, Fujitsu's solutions enable its telecom carrier customers and multi-service operators to further capitalize on the existing infrastructure by transporting multi-protocol clients over existing optical transport networks."
