Qwest to Build National Net With Corvis
“Corvis’ new technology will help Qwest move its data-intensive, distance-independent traffic to an all-optical express layer,” said Mike Perusse, Qwest’s senior vice president of engineering and technology. “This will allow us to eliminate electronic conversions in the network and drive down costs.”
Qwest and Corvis will also work together to develop OC-768 next-generation transmission technologies. This R&D partnership will leverage Corvis’ lead in 40-Gbps soliton transmission and Raman amplification products with Qwest’s commitment to next-generation new product introductions.
