Packet switched networks using mpls, pbb, frame relay & ponp technology: Lightwave

PACKET TRANSPORT

Packet transport networks take advantage of a variety of technologies. Carrier Ethernet switches, packet optical transport systems, IP switches and routers, and label switched router platforms are some of the technologies carriers have employed in packet transport networks for mobile backhaul, video transmission, data services, and other digital services.

Watch for silicon photonics on the line side

10/23/2014
Most of the hullabaloo around silicon photonics has centered on its application to data center networks. But presentations and announcements at last month’s ECOC in Cannes, France, indicate the technology will play on the line side as well. For example, Acacia Communications used the show to further publicize its use of sili...

Forget about the labels

11/03/2014
In the luxury and fashion world, we could argue that brand names and labels are important. But in our world, the optical network world, donning a brand-named fiber-optic component is not mission critical. Purchasing behavior is—as it should be—based on quality, price, and service. A ProLabs survey, which was conduc...
