Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd. will add MetroNID 1 Gigabit Ethernet demarcation devices and the MetroNODE 10GE demarcation and OAM aggregator from Accedian Networks, a provider of products for Carrier Ethernet mobile backhaul networks, to the Fujitsu FDX2400 family of products, according to an agreement.
The agreement is designed to enable both companies to continue leveraging the growing market for high-performance Ethernet applications.
Accedian Networks’ demarcation devices provide remote diagnostic, monitoring, and performance measurement capabilities, which will complement Fujitsu’s FDX2400 Series Switches. FDX2400 switches are designed for use in multiple applications within customer networks to provide support for next-generation access, mobile backhaul, and point-to-point fiber networks, says a company representative.
“Our customers rely on us to help them build and operate the highest-performing networks,” says Alan Davidson, head of products and service solutions, Fujitsu. “The Accedian demarcation equipment represents the state of the art in Ethernet Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) equipment. Combining this functionality with Fujitsu’s Ethernet access product and service portfolio will enable us to deliver tremendous value to our customers.”
“The agreement with Fujitsu is very important to Accedian, as it provides us with a strong, well-respected partner,” explains Craig Easley, vice president of marketing and product management, Accedian Networks. “With their impeccable reputation as a networking expert, we have an incredible opportunity to access some of the most important networking projects, for some of the world’s leading companies.”
