The network will link Emory Crawford Long Hospital and Grady Memorial Hospital as well as Emory campus locations and carrier peering sites.

Emory University is known for its schools of medicine, business, and law, as well as its state-of-the-art research facilities. Emory is undergoing unprecedented growth with a surge in research support, especially in the health sciences. Research facilities at Emory require a high-performance network to support bandwidth-intensive applications such as high-resolution image transfers and the remote processing of large data files.

Movaz will provide its RAYexpress product for the Emory network. The equipment will support TDM, data, and video transport over a survivable optical backbone that can scale to 40 Gbit/sec of capacity on a single fiber pair. Remote clients will be able to access application servers and data storage anywhere in the network with total transparency.

According to Bijan Khosravi, chairman and CEO of Movaz Networks. "We have seen increasing demands from enterprises for optical networking, since it provides the most cost-effective means of delivering data services such as Gigabit Ethernet, ESCON and Fibre Channel."
