FOXBORO, Mass. -- Telco Systems, a leader in network edge technology and IP switching platforms, today announced a partnership with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and Exbit, a subsidiary of Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:VTSS), to conjointly develop a 10 Gigabit Ethernet, multilayer Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) service platform. The project is being financially supported by the European community and will be lead by coordinated research teams in Yokneam, Geneva and Copenhagen, each focusing on their own forte. With interest from several leading global communications companies, the new 10 Gigabit Ethernet service platform will aid in the implementation of the "GRID" project, the future computing project of communication networks designed to provide ultra-fast Internet communications. Telco Systems was chosen to lead the project after winning the European Information Society Technologies (IST) Prize for the development of the T6 multilayer Gigabit Ethernet switch. The T6 is a result of successful cooperation between Telco Systems and CERN. Moshiko Levhar, director, IP product management for Telco Systems comments, "the purpose of this project is to develop a product that will meet the European Union's vision of ultra-fast networks, while smoothly support services and applications by connecting parts of the networks into one intelligent, resilient, and powerful network."
