To address increased bandwidth requirements as new services are provisioned, Unisphere Networks also announced the availability of new multilink software services, as well as an OC-48c/STM-16 line module for the ERX Edge Router family.The SDX is designed to enable service providers to share control of outsourced network services by distributing power to enterprise IT managers.
