Optivera unveils optical networking signaling platform

May 15, 2001
May 14, 2001--Optivera announced the Signum product family, claiming it to be the first optical networking signaling platform.

Optivera announced what the company claims is the first optical networking signaling platform: the Signum product family. Incumbent carriers and telecom operators are expected to be prime beneficiaries.

Carriers face problems in providing competitive and fast services to their users due to the growing demand for bandwidth and the increase in the number and complexity of optical networks. Manual, offline provisioning methods make lightpath allocations a procedure that takes weeks or even months to execute resulting in lost revenue opportunity. Using its patent pending technology Optivera brings to the market an online real-time signaling technology handling the entire network. Signaling systems have long been successfully implemented in legacy networks with clear benefits to carriers.

The Signum platform enables the operator to offer on-demand, real-time lightpath provisioning and guaranteed scalable QoS implemented through a complete signaling solution in any network. Its architecture is based on a set of advanced optimal route algorithms, real-time resource allocation abilities and unique multi-vendor interfacing technology.

Carriers receive bandwidth on demand as well as guaranteed timely services, flexible protection schemes and significant improvement of network utilization. Optivera's Signum technology also supports new and legacy systems so that it is useful in both single and multi-vendor environments.
