Calient Intros FiberConnect

LAS VEGAS -- Calient Networks, a leading supplier of carrier-class fiber optic cross-connection systems (FOCS), today announced that it has shattered the cost barriers preventing carriers from widespread implementation of remote, software-controlled fiber management needed to cope with explosive growth in their fiber networks. With significant design and manufacturing breakthroughs, Calient’s new FOCS platform, called the DiamondWave® FiberConnect, provides an unprecedented range of critical fiber operations functions for any size fiber plant at the same or better cost, reliability and ease of use as the present mode of operation using manual patch panels.

“As Service Providers face a deluge of new fiber deployments, they fully understand that static patch-panels, manual testing and truck-based fault isolation in the fiber plant are costly and do not scale well,” stated Charles Corbalis, CEO and president of Calient Networks. “The problem they face is that previous systems for controlling fiber remotely via software have been prohibitively expensive compared to the static patch panel solutions. This has now changed. Our FiberConnect product is priced an order of magnitude lower than previously available FOCS solutions and gives operators the ability to monitor, troubleshoot and rearrange the fiber plant remotely from the Network Operations Center. Service Providers can now cost-effectively modernize their outmoded fiber management operations and take hands out of the fiber plant.”
