MAY 20, 2009 -- FibroLAN (search Lightwave for FibroLAN), a vendor of fiber-optic access systems, has released the Falcon SE series of Synchronous Ethernet fiber NTUs.
The Falcon SE series primarily addresses the expanding market of mobile backhauling technologies.
While last year's release of FibroLAN's Falcon T series was designed to provide a robust and moderately priced point-to-point solution for cellular backhauling, the Falcon SE series -- featuring the Falcon SE and SET -- is an open ended, versatile offering. It supports Stratum 3 (or higher) level of synchronization along with 8 E1/T1 links over Ethernet, for either point-to-point or across the network based on the CES/MEF8 standards. Additionally, says FibroLAN, it allows the aggregation of virtually any number of E1/T1s on a ring, offloading them as TDM links in a central location (for instance, feeding SDH/SONET) or sending them across a next-generation network.
The transmission methods supported by the Falcon SE series cater to most of the current and envisaged methods in the mobile backhauling arena that are being specified to support 3G/4G as well as WiMAX base stations.
For smaller sites, FibroLAN also offers the miniFalcon SE/SET.
Israel Stein, CEO of FibroLAN, says, "As many carriers operate in two or three of the target markets, the Falcon's multiple functionalities allow great savings due to simplified OAM, OSS, and logistic processes."
