30 October 2003 San Jose, CA Lightwave -- Corrigent Systems, a provider of packet-ADM transport systems for metropolitan networks, has expanded its sales operations in the Japanese market with the opening of an office in Tokyo. The expanding operations reflect growing interest in packet-ADM products in this region of Asia-Pacific.
"In addition to the traction we are witnessing in North America, Corrigent Systems is now targeting additional opportunities overseas, especially in Japan," said Ehud Rokach, CEO. "The opening of our new Tokyo office and lab demonstrates our commitment to the Japanese market and our goal of working closely with potential customers in this region to best address their growing needs for state of the art, data-optimized transport solutions".
The new office, located at 2-7-16 Toranomon, Minato-ku Tokyo, is led by Akio Ogiso, country manager, who was previously with Lucent Japan as managing director. "Japan's rapidly growing 3G wireless and IP VPN services is resulting in huge pressures on carriers to deploy cost-effective transport products that are more bandwidth efficient for Ethernet as well as traditional SONET/SDH services," said Ogiso. "Our new office and lab in Tokyo will allow us to provide the support infrastructure for carrier customers in Japan."
