Corrigent Unveils CM-4000
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Corrigent Systems, a
leading provider of Packet Transport equipment, announced today the release
of the CM-4000 Packet Transport Switch (PTS) series, a new line of advanced
transport products designed to provide highly scalable end-to-end delivery
of packet and TDM services over a single, converged transport
infrastructure. This new product line builds on Corrigent's industry-leading
packet transport technology and is designed to provide a universal transport
solution, capable of delivering any traffic mix, from 100% circuit-based TDM
to 100% Ethernet services with high cost efficiency.
The CM-4000 PTS, which includes the CM-4314 and CM-4206, provides full non-blocking switching capacity of 320Gbps and 160Gbps respectively, scalable to 640Gbps and 320Gbps. It provides unmatched in-service scalability through the introduction of advanced bonding technologies, which allow network operators to scale network links to up to 100Gbps per link.
The CM-4000 PTS facilitates the migration towards all-IP by providing network operators with a viable path to convergence through the introduction of SONET/SDH-to-Ethernet interworking, and high-port-density Ethernet interfaces. While still providing full support for circuit-based TDM services and applications, the CM-4000 enables service providers to cost-effectively offer standards-compliant E-Line, E-LAN and E-TREE Ethernet services. This facilitates the delivery of profitable advanced IP services such as residential Triple Play, business Ethernet and the backhaul of 3G and 3.5G wireless and WiMax services over a single, converged packet transport infrastructure.
"Packet Transport is the next step for carriers looking to implement Ethernet-centric transport networks," said Gady Rosenfeld, VP Marketing for Corrigent Systems. "Our CM-4000 Packet Transport Switch represents the merger point for transport and Ethernet, allowing carriers to benefit from Ethernet's ubiquity, simplicity and cost effectiveness, and yet maintain the general-purpose characteristics of the transport network."
