Optivera, a developer of optical signaling solutions, announced it has successfully demonstrated interoperability and is participating in the Optical Internetworking Forum's first User Network Interface (UNI) interoperability demo at this week's SuperComm in Atlanta.

OIF is sponsoring its first UNI demo to highlight its UNI Protocol that allows clients devices to dynamically establish and tear down optical circuit connections. The achievement of UNI interoperability is the first step towards allowing carriers to offer advanced optical network services across multi-vendor, multi-technology networks.

Optivera demonstrated its flagship product, Signum, in the OIF booth. Signum is an optical signaling platform that enables intelligent network services to be deployed efficiently and cost-effectively over today and tomorrow's hybrid networks. The platform controls real time, on-net lightpath allocation in optical networking environments, enabling on-net, on-demand wavelength provisioning, from any source to any destination in the network, in only a few seconds. The hardware behind Signum computes all needed routes according to availability, receives the service requests and then configures all the relevant devices along the routes selected. Signum was designed with an interface suite that enables it to easily interoperate with multi-vendor network equipment and an array of standard protocols.

Twenty-five optical network technology manufacturers and test equipment vendors participated in the OIF demonstration at SuperComm, including Avici Systems, Ciena, Cisco, Lucent, Optisphere, Tellium and Village Networks. Intelligent systems vendors that typically compete in the same markets have joined together to demonstrate the feasibility and value of internetworking.

For Optivera, the OIF has provided an avenue for the company to launch its flagship product and test substantial traffic load, ensuring their product works seamlessly with multi-vendor equipment. Optivera is confident in the direction the company is moving by proving seamless interface with other vendors, making their Signum a cost-efficient solution for hybrid networks.
