Alloptic, manufacturer of IP-centric, Gigabit Ethernet Passive Optical Networking (ePON) solutions for the FTTH market, has started the OSMINE (Operations Systems Modification of Intelligent Network Elements) compliance process.

"OSMINE accreditation is an essential requirement for doing business with the regional Bell companies and Alloptic is committed to meeting this requirement," asserts Mike Moone, president and chief executive officer of Alloptic. "Our platform is the first Gigabit ePON solution to submit to the rigorous process of OSMINE compliance, which clearly speaks to the evolution and maturity of our product line."

The Alloptic GigaForce system was designed and engineered as a carrier-class system, say company representatives. It offers the RBOCs full integration with their current operating system for test and turn-up, as well as provisioning and maintenance functionality to deploy voice, video and data services.

More than 80 percent of the U.S. telecommunications networks depend on operations support systems (OSS) software developed and maintained by Telcordia. OSMINE is a process by which a manufacturer can achieve full network equipment compatibility and interoperability with the Telcordia OSS. All service providers who deploy Telcordia's OSS will be able to operate seamlessly with equipment that has been certified through the OSMINE process. RBOCs can then order on a volume basis and deploy the certified equipment with the knowledge that it will interface and provide Operation, Administration, Maintenance and Provisioning (OAM&P) of services.
