21 July 2003 Marlborough, MA and Shrewsbury, N.J. Lightwave -- FiberNet Telecom Group, Inc., a provider of metropolitan connectivity, has deployed Internet Photonics' Intelligent Wavelength Platforms to provide Optical Ethernet transport services within the New York metro market. The Internet Photonics equipment is being used to deliver Gigabit Ethernet private line services to FiberNet's customers for applications such as web hosting, data storage and video on-demand.

FiberNet is using the LightStack MX platform in point-to-point configurations to deliver Gigabit Ethernet transport to carrier customers requiring secure, high-capacity connectivity between carrier hotels for Web hosting and storage networking applications, and for low latency applications such as video on demand. Leveraging the LightStack's VirtualWire capabilities, each MX is capable of supporting any mix of customers and services on the same U wavelength simply and securely with plug-and-play quality of service.

"The LightStack MX is a simple and scalable platform that maximizes bandwidth efficiency and drives down the cost of multiple Gigabit Ethernet connections," said Ernie Hoffmann, vice president of engineering, FiberNet. "The MX enables FiberNet to profitably deploy Optical Ethernet services to our customers while reducing installation intervals."

The LightStack MX multiplexes up to 8 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) clients onto a single 10-Gbit/sec DWDM optical interface in a space-saving one-rack unit. This ensures maximum use and efficiency of critical fiber resources as compared to other systems that require one wavelength for each GbE signal, and it allows service providers and cable operators to cost effectively extend mission-critical and high-bandwidth services.

The LightStack MX offers other advanced capabilities such as enhanced performance monitoring, service level agreement statistics gathering, fault detection and localization, and local/remote loopback control, so network operators can offer their customers true carrier-grade managed Optical Ethernet services. Wire-like GbE transport capability and various advanced performance monitoring features provide inherent guaranteed security and quality-of-service control without any of the design and configuration complexity of legacy data platforms. In addition, the LightStack MX provides transparent support for all IP-based and Ethernet-based protocols, including protection, load balancing, and other higher-layer services.
