SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Dowslake Microsystems, a pioneer and provider of smart modules and subsystems for system integrators, today announced the availability of 2 new system platforms. They are major additions to its existing MiniSIS product line, which is a series of network-ready system solutions for optical transport and access.

The 2 new products include MiniSIS xWDM 1600 and MiniSIS MTX 155.

MiniSIS xWDM 1600 is a 6U 16 slot transport system for multi-channel applications, capable of a total transmission capacity up to 40 Gbps. Integrating Dowslake’s multi-rate transponders, smart EDFAs, multiplexers and other optical modules, with redundant system and power supply controls, MiniSIS xWDM 1600 offers a low cost alternative for high capacity optical WDM transport. It is also complimentary to Dowslake’s existing 1U 4 slot platform - MiniSIS xWDM 400.

MiniSIS MTX 155 is a 1U Ethernet-over- SDH (SONET) platform. It belongs to the MSTP-Multi-Service Transport Platform product category, allowing enterprise network or wireless operators to bring both data and voice services to the client premises. MiniSIS MTX 155 has on the transport side 2 STM-1 (OC-3) optical interfaces using standard SFP transceivers, connecting local services to the public SDH (SONET) networks. It incorporates a full-featured SDH (SONET) add/drop multiplexer with digital cross-connect capability. On the client side it provides 8 E1(DS1) and 4 Fast Ethernet interfaces, allowing an aggregation of both traditional voice and newest Ethernet services. Through the adoption of MSTP, enterprise/campus network service providers can provide broadband and voice services while utilizing the existing SDH (SONET) based public network, minimizing capital investment and maximizing service revenue in a short term. For wireless operators, the low cost MSTP product offers a seamless transition from 2G to 3G networks.
