(NASDAQ: SCMR - News), a leader in intelligent optical networking, today announced the successful integration of the company's SilvxOSS(TM) (Operations Support System) and several of the industry's leading OSSs and product suites from Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). Through Sycamore's support of a wide range of standards-based interfaces (TL1, TMF CORBA, XML, and SNMP), SilvxOSS facilitates transmission of intelligent network element data from Sycamore's SILVX® Network Management System (NMS) into a service providers' existing OSS. With this integration, service providers can easily integrate Sycamore Intelligent Optical Switches and SILVX NMS into their existing optical networks and OSSs.SilvxOSS has facilitated integration of SILVX NMS with the following companies and their products:

  • Agilent Technologies' (NYSE:A - News) NETeXPERT

  • Clear's Clearview(TM) Product Suite

  • HP's OpenView Service Management for Service Providers

  • SkyOptix's Enhanced Transport Management(TM) Suite

Through SilvxOSS, Sycamore's full line of Intelligent Optical Switches and SILVX NMS can be integrated into these OSSs, allowing service providers to realize significant operational benefits without disrupting their existing network, services, or OSS. Additionally, because the SilvxOSS northbound interfaces package and deliver fulfillment, assurance and billing related information, service providers have complete access to the advanced capabilities enabled by the Sycamore optical switches, and can gradually migrate to a more dynamic and intelligent optically-switched network."Sycamore has always been committed to providing service providers with a clear and seamless migration path from their existing infrastructure to a more flexible, cost-effective network," said Kevin Oye, vice president of systems and technology at Sycamore.
