December 11, 2001--Alidian Networks (San Jose, CA) unveiled its new ATM Service Intelligence (ASI) software today for use on the Alidian� Optical Service Node (OSN) family of optical add/drop multiplexer systems.

ATM-based metro area transport networks, according to Alidian, can now offer the data awareness and quality of service critical to efficient data transmission without the cost or complexity of typical ATM switched networks.

The software enables the OSN family to perform virtual path (VP) multiplexing to support service aggregation, rate control, and quality of service, all on a per-port or per-connection basis which improves bandwidth utilization in DSLAM applications.

The ASI software runs on Alidian�s DS-3, OC-3 and OC-12 ATM service interface modules.
