Lightscape Demos Platform
Lightscape Networks' demonstration involves carrying live video traffic over Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and DWDM networking of the XDM. Depending on the type of GigE service, the XDM can switch and groom the GigE traffic and transport it efficiently with carrier class multi-path protection and restoration, over a SONET/SDH infrastructure. Alternatively, the XDM can multiplex multiple GigE channels per wavelength and transport it over a pure optical infrastructure. Carriers can offer pay-by-the-slice services by utilizing the XDM on-demand provisioning of carrier class GigE in increments of 50 Mbits/s.
"Today's transmission demonstrates the XDM's ability to support GigE traffic and combine multiple network elements in one platform," said Emanuel Nachum, acting president of Lightscape Networks North America. "As carriers see its benefits at OFC, they can realize our commitment to significantly reducing their network costs while allowing them to build flexible and scalable next-generation metro and regional networks."
