re: Turin Turns Up I'm interested in knowing more about Tom Mino. Same guy that now runs Lumera? Can anyone tell me more about the guy?

re: Turin Turns Up I wonder just how far they've gone with their BLSR capabilities. This has turned out to be a lot harder than most new companies have any idea, particularly if they're writing their own ASICs (can BLSR ASIC code be purchased?). Certainly, they ain't got OC-192 BLSR (the might Cerent has an OC-48 BLSR even before getting purchased by Cisco, and didn't have OC-192 BLSR up and running until very recently, if at all).

Anyone know?

re: Turin Turns Up There first trial is a BLSR trial as far as I can tell.

re: Turin Turns Up Story sounds good. Does anyone know if they are in production or how the trials are going? Has LR spoke with any of the potential customers to get a unbiased opinion on the interest in the product?

Could LR do a trade study to show where Turin fits in relative to its competitors (if there are any). Cost may not be available (since its fuzzy math), but a matrix showing where Turin standsout to its peers would be nice.

re: Turin Turns Up The serious problems with many of these companies (Cisco, not Cerent, Alacatel, and the like) is that once they started bringing in money from the large carriers and RBOC's, they stopped being innovative for their customers and started trying to spread themselves into as many arena's as possible. It's always better to grab an up and coming company with stars in its eyes, and help it form around what you want. If you want acertain feature or capability that isn't in, say a 15454, Cerent would have found a way, Cisco won't. And God boxes never work. Stick with one thing (Sonet TDM), add some features (GIG-E, 10/100, some routing an Vlans) and let the carriers decide which products they want to do which functions. Just my .02 worth.

re: Turin Turns Up Any idea what rate? 2 Fiber or 4 fiber? My guess is that if they have BLSR, it's 2/BLSR @ OC-48 but not OC-192. But if they've got OC-192 4/BLSR right out of the gates, then we may have a new Cerent on our hands.
But if they really wrote their own code for the BLSR, expect lots of bugs in whatever field trials. That's a LOT harder than most people imagine if they haven't looked into K1/K2 byte exchange, for instance.

re: Turin Turns Up The customer in the press release indicated that they were passing live traffic with Turin's product on their OC-48 SONET ring.

I wonder who the RBOC and two IXCs they are trialing with are? Anyone know? Interest from that many big carriers is surprising for a company I've not really ever even heard anything about?

re: Turin Turns Up The truth on the street is that their box is passing live subscriber traffic flawlessly.

re: Turin Turns Up RBOC win?? OC-192 BLSR? come on people. let's do some due diligence here before blindly publishing anything we're told. word on the street is the box has trouble passing traffic.

re: Turin Turns Up Here's a link to their press-release.


Looks like they're passing live traffic at Grande River Communications.
