France's UEVE picks Nayna Networks to support academic broadband IT lab
August 18, 2005 San Jose, CA -- For use in its telecom laboratory, the University of Evry Val d'Essonne (UEVE) in Paris, France has selected Nayna Networks' ExpressSTREAM product line.
"Nayna's ExpressSTREAM product family is a fascinating toolset for our students to explore the various facets of fiber networks in the last mile," explains Dr. Aleksander Baczko, an associate professor at UEVE. "The flexibility and modularity of ExpressSTREAM will allow us to illustrate and demonstrate a wide range of advanced transmission technologies [surrounding] next generation networks [and] broadband access, including point-to-multipoint fiber transmission, Gigabit Ethernet optical transmission, and multiple wavelengths multiplexing over a single fiber."
The university has more than 10,000 students enrolled and offers its community a variety of graduate and post-graduate programs in science, technology, law, and economics. The school's telecom laboratory supports its various information technology programs.
"Our advanced laboratory supports a multitude of technologies, and Nayna's ExpressSTREAM will expand our laboratory network with true 'triple-play,' carrying data, high-definition IP video, and voice-over-IP over single fiber, while complying with new standards such as the IEEE 802.3ah," adds Baczko.
"As Nayna continues to rollout its European marketing campaign, the UEVE sale is an important strategic win," concludes Dominique Rodriguez, vice-president of product management for Nayna Networks. "The next generation of French IT engineers will be trained on ExpressSTREAM, an ideal multi-Gigabit Ethernet technology platform for applying and verifying relevant theoretical networking and transmission concepts and their real-world applications."
