CIENA selects VPI's IP/optical network design software

May 7, 2001
May 7, 2001--VPI Virtual Photonics announced that CIENA Corporation is using VPItransportMaker to illustrate architectural possibilities and financial implications for next generation networks.

VPI Virtual Photonics, a developer of professional tools and productivity systems for next generation products and networks, announced that CIENA Corporation, a provider of intelligent optical networking systems, is using VPItransportMaker to illustrate architectural possibilities and financial implications for next generation networks.

CIENA applied VPI's software in the preparation of a network case study that was presented at the Optical Fiber Communication conference (OFC 2001) this past March. The CIENA team used VPItransportMaker to compare different optical network architectures and highlight the benefits of intelligent optical switching in the core network.

The VPItransportMaker software helps carriers plan the economics of the network, by uncovering the most effective way to meet bandwidth, Quality of Service (QoS) and cost requirements.
