Turin Adds DCS
PETALUMA, Calif. -- Turin Networks, Inc., a leading developer and supplier of multiservice transport platforms today announced a significant expansion to its product portfolio, adding scalable wideband DCS functionality to the company’s flagship Traverse™ Platform. Available today, the new bandwidth management capabilities made possible with this enhancement enable service providers to simplify their transport networks while dramatically reducing both capital and operational costs.
“The integration of wideband cross-connect functionality in next-generation systems such as Turin’s Traverse can save a carrier CapEx by deploying fewer boxes, as well as OpEx by using less space, less power, and having fewer systems to manage,” said Anna Reidy, Senior Analyst, Current Analysis. “Since they are considerably smaller and less expensive than traditional DCS solutions, they can also be deployed in more places in the network.”
Raising the industry bar in cost-effective switching scalability with this enhancement, the Traverse Platform supports seamless growth from 96 to 384 STS-1 equivalents (2688 to 10,752 VTs) of fully protected, non-blocking capacity in a single shelf that takes up one fourth of a standard 7-foot rack. Expansion can be accomplished completely in-service, in 48 STS-1 increments. This flexible, “pay-as-you-grow” approach provides significant cost savings over existing DCS architectures, which typically require considerable up-front capital investments.
