As a first step in this joint effort, the companies have demonstrated the interworking of FME’s highly integrated Ethernet-over-SDH/SONET device MB87M2181 with SwitchCore’s industry-leading Ethernet switch CXE-2139. With this unique combination of carrier-class Ethernet switching and highly reliable SDH/SONET-based transport technology, telecom systems providers can deliver content-aware quality of service over traditional backbone infrastructures. Systems using this solution will be able to deliver flexible, robust and cost-effective services to end-customers, especially for emerging applications such as IPTV and Video-on-Demand.
“SwitchCore’s outstanding expertise in carrier-class Ethernet switching technology enables us to provide complete systems solutions for end-to-end applications to our telecom customer base,” said Dirk Weinsziehr, FME's Senior Director of Marketing. “SwitchCore’s products complement our SDH/SONET and Ethernet mapping products as well as our own high-end Ethernet Switching devices creating a unique portfolio”.
“As a leading supplier of components to converging telecom networks it is essential for us to enable, demonstrate and provide solutions for IP and SDH/SONET as well as OTN networks,” said Erwin Leichtle, CEO of SwitchCore. “Combining our products with the FME devices into reference designs for next-generation networks, will give our customers the quick time-to-market they need to successfully deploy multiservice equipment.”
