Metro-Optix Goes With Agere Gear

ALLENTOWN, Pa., and DALLAS -- Agere Systems (NYSE: AGR.A), today announced that Metro-Optix has selected a suite of Agere's networking integrated circuits (IC), systems-on-chip (Sock) and opt components for use in Metro-Optic's CityStream platform, a "protocol-agile" bandwidth management product that will help speed the transition of traditional circuit-based networks to next-generation, high-performance cell- and packet-based services over optical networks. Metro-Optix currently deploys a broad range of Agere's network Sock and opt components in CityStream, targeted to service providers including Internet service providers as well as long-distance, regional and local telecommunications carriers.

"Metro-Optix and Agere shared a common vision from the start-to simplify and integrate optical networks while packing in more speed, functionality and performance," said Ed Roberts, vice president of Agere's Networks and Communications business unit.
