SAN DIEGO -- Sorrento Networks (Nasdaq\NM:FIBR), a leading supplier of intelligent optical networking solutions for metro and regional applications, today announced that ING BHF-BANK has deployed Sorrento's SideStreet Channel technology to implement an 8-node DWDM system on an existing SDH network. ING BHF-BANK is one of Germany's leading commercial banks and has been using Sorrento's GigaMux system since January 2001 for disaster recovery and disk mirroring in a large GDPS environment. Rudiger Schwitalla, ING BHF-BANK's vice president of Telecommunications Networks, commented, "We have been very pleased with the performance of the GigaMux system for the past two years. The present application of Sorrento's SideStreet Channel allows us to take advantage of the scalability of DWDM for new data services, such as Gigabit Ethernet, on a live SDH network." SideStreet Channel is an optical multiplexing solution from Sorrento Networks that enables customers to implement a DWDM-based, multi-gigabit link into any legacy, non-DWDM network. SideStreet Channel enables carriers and enterprises to target increased bandwidth delivery only to those sites that require it, while allowing other sites on the same metro ring to maintain their legacy architecture without costly system-wide upgrades.
