LANGEN, U.K. -- Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) and SwitchCore, two leading suppliers of silicon to the communications industry, today announce that they have joined forces to provide advanced solutions for converged Metro, Access and Core networks.

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.”
