Cisco Introduces Metro DWDM Box

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cisco Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CSCO - news), the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet, today introduced the ONS 15200 product series, the first metropolitan dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) solution capable of delivering "wavelengths-to-the-building." The newest addition to Cisco's extensive IP+Optical portfolio is specifically optimized for the performance and cost requirements of the metropolitan environment, offering unrivalled supercharged wavelength services and unprecedented transport flexibility to enable service providers to achieve new revenue and profit via radical economics.

"The Cisco ONS 15200 DWDM series should hit the metro DWDM market pretty hard. Cisco is correctly addressing the need for increased service delivery in the metro space by combining multiservice access with metro DWDM transport," said Chris Nicoll, vice president, Telecom Infrastructure at competitive intelligence firm Current Analysis. "By building on the unqualified success of the ONS 15454 and ONS 15327 multiservice delivery platforms, Cisco should get a fast market penetration for the ONS 15200 series in the over 500 customers currently using the ONS 15454."

re: Cisco Introduces Metro DWDM Box Qeyton is another Monterey, Cisco is using this anouncement as a stop gap....word on the street is that this product can't deliver the goods. The days of selling with the wind at your back are over and if Cisco's product is not industry leading they will not win, regardless of their channel.....
