LAS VEGAS -- Fujitsu Network Communications Inc., a leading supplier of IT and wireline/wireless networking solutions, announced today a significant new release of its FLASHWAVE® 7420 wavelength access platform. This feature-rich Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system has a new optical layer design and a hybrid implementation of both static and dynamic photonic components that will allow carriers to lower the cost of deployment of broadband optical services over a shared, survivable access infrastructure. The new FLASHWAVE 7420 platform will be on display this week in the Fujitsu booth (No. 1337) during the TelecomNEXT conference and exhibition in Las Vegas.

The FLASHWAVE 7420 wavelength access platform is fully incorporated into the Fujitsu WDM portfolio through a successful four-year OEM relationship with ADVA Optical Networking Inc. The flexible system will multiplex and offer transport for high-speed voice, video, data and storage applications. The carrier-class platform, available in both a standard (seven rack unit) and slimline (one rack unit) chassis version, can be used to dramatically increase bandwidth and service flexibility, while supporting new revenue-generating opportunities for high-speed Ethernet and Storage Area Network (SAN) services. Individual wavelengths can be provisioned with or without protection to offer Quality of Service (QoS) differentiation at highly competitive prices.

“The FLASHWAVE 7420 wavelength access platform continues to be a critical component of our overall WDM portfolio because it helps our carrier customers lower the cost of transporting Ethernet and certified storage services,” said Bill Erickson, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Fujitsu Network Communications. “With the enhanced capabilities of the new FLASHWAVE 7420 platform, Fujitsu continues our corporate goal of helping carriers evolve their networks, lower operating expenses and offer innovative new services.”
