Boca Photonics demonstrates optical channel auto-discovery feature

Dec. 3, 2001
Dec. 3, 2001--Boca Photonics has successfully demonstrated an addition to their optical control plane solution, an auto-discovery feature that enables network operators to speed their installation and commissioning process by automatically detecting network topology and optical channel connectivity of mesh-based intelligent optical networks.

Boca Photonics has successfully demonstrated an addition to their optical control plane solution, an auto-discovery feature that enables network operators to speed their installation and commissioning process by automatically detecting network topology and optical channel connectivity of mesh-based intelligent optical networks.

"For efficient implementation, management, and maintenance of a dynamic optical network, auto-discovery plays a critical role in the network operations environment," explains Michael McLaughlin, President and CEO of Boca Photonics. "Using our ServicesPlex Controller optical control plane system with its auto-discovery feature, operators will know exactly what optical resources are available in their network, greatly improving response time to changing service demand."

"Optical auto-discovery simplifies a variety of key operations management functions, from network inventory reconciliation to provisioning to fault isolation and recovery," adds Nancee Ruzicka, optical analyst at the Yankee Group (Boston).

Boca Photonics hopes to get an early jump on the market through quick development of key features to integrate into their optical control plane solution that exploit multi-vendor/multi-technology network topologies.

Boca Photonics Inc. (Boca Raton, FL) offers a suite of integrated service control products and a portfolio of professional services designed to plan, implement, and restore wavelength services for network operators and equipment manufacturers.
