Jan. 8, 2002�BrightLink Networks (Sunnyvale, CA), after testing various configurations of its BOSS 1000 optical grooming switch systems, verified the viability of its non-blocking distributed architecture for SONET switching.

Several configurations were tested, ranging from 16 ports to 512 ports of OC-48 equivalent bandwidth, using a combination of OC-48 and OC-192 ports. The viability of the design for up to 1,024 OC-48 ports was also proven. The tests validate truly scalable SONET switching on both sides of the 256-port wall.

BrightLink�s system includes STS-1 grooming, flexible scalability and other advanced features such as UPSR to address switching bottlenecks in metro and long haul carrier networks.
