The Diamonds judges called the 5160 Service Aggregation Switch's 10G 24-port unit impressive, especially since it comes in a 1RU chassis. Also praised was the fact that the very dense and very configurable 5160 eliminates the need for 10G test sets and has a great temperature range for OTN deployment.
Ciena says the product will help operators take advantage of the new revenue opportunities that come with 10G services by helping them deliver and aggregate large quantities of data efficiently while meeting stringent service level agreements (SLAs). The 5160 is supported by the company's Service Aware Operating System and OneControl Unified Management System. It provides zero-touch turnup, robust synchronization and timing support, fine-grained SLA monitoring and enforcement, and comprehensive management.www.ciena.comSee them at Cable-Tec Expo, Booth 1326Return to the BTR Diamond Technology Reviews Elite.
