Sorrento Networks has expanded its GigaMux 3200 product family with the Optical Transport Network (OTN) card, designed to enable the simultaneous operation of multiple services on a single 10G wavelength.

Sorrento’s OTN card enables the GigaMux 3200 to provide a multiple-service platform over an 80-channel wavelength architecture, as well as allows carriers to migrate older single-wavelength services, such as SONET and SDH, to a WDM infrastructure.

“By using fiber cables already in place, we gain efficiencies in deploying new WDM networks, saving our customers money,” says Jim Nevelle, CEO of Sorrento Networks. “In today’s environment, it is imperative that WDM providers give network operators flexibility and strive to solve bandwidth management issues within the market.”

Sorrento’s OTN technology addresses legacy networks and future service offerings, according to the company. “Customers could deploy the OTN card within an existing system or as they upgrade their network,” Nevelle explains. “We’re also including our Tunable XFP technology and 80-channel filter architecture to give carriers greater flexibility and additional features that will meet their needs today and in the future.”
