All provide compatible next-generation SONET functionality and serve as integrated Ethernet over SONET metro platforms. When used together, the products in the portfolio create an end-to-end solution that allows carriers to offer faster, more sophisticated services while lowering operating costs. "The DMXpress platform provides an ideal premises-based platform for Ethernet over SONET, as well as TDM services," said Ian Miles at Toronto Hydro Telecom.
