Vello Systems debuts compact IP+Optical system for 10G and beyond

July 1, 2010
JUNE 30, 2010 -- Vello Systems has introduced the CX4000 IP+Optical system. The compact high-performance 5-slot CX4000 complements the 17-slot CX16000 enabling 10G and beyond capacity and extending the company's Adaptive Optical Services Routing (AOSR) technology to a wider range of carrier and enterprise applications, including data center internetworking, triple-play service delivery, and mobile backhaul.

JUNE 30, 2010 -- Vello Systems has introduced the CX4000 IP+Optical system. The compact high-performance 5-slot CX4000 complements the 17-slot CX16000 enabling 10G and beyond capacity and extending the company's Adaptive Optical Services Routing (AOSR) technology to a wider range of carrier and enterprise applications, including data center internetworking, triple-play service delivery, and mobile backhaul.

The CX4000 is purpose-built to provide highly scalable and flexible bandwidth and services, improving network response time and lowering costs. The system is capable of delivering 40G capacities over 10G engineered fiber networks, and excels over long fiber paths, on old and unconditioned fiber and even when multiplexed onto fiber shared with other equipment.

The CX4000 also offers low-latency connectivity to maintain high transaction rates in data center connectivity applications, as well as to ensure consistent high quality-of-service for broadband and backhaul environments. Its compact size, low power consumption, and low heat dissipation conserve vital space, power, and HVAC in today's crowded data centers, central offices, and wireless base station locations.

For carriers, the new CX4000 enables deeper penetration of next-generation 10G optical networking technology into access and aggregation networks for immediate capacity relief and is well suited for space and power constrained environments, according to the company. The CX4000 supports a range of TDM and 1GE/10GE service cards to satisfy legacy requirements. For enterprise, the new system coupled with the company’s wide-range of mix-and-match Ethernet and Fiber Channel service cards is a platform for unifying storage, compute, and network fabrics over wide-area network connections.

Like the proven CX16000, the CX4000 is powered by the VellOS real-time network operating system and based on the company’s Unified Systems Architecture. Additionally, like the CX16000, the CX4000 is manageable through the company’s WaveMaster point-and-click management system, enabling fast, simple, and error-free element management and provisioning.

“Carriers and enterprise are turning to next-generation IP+Optical networking systems to help increase capacity, lower latency, and reduce costs,” says Karl May, Vello Systems president and CEO. “The new CX4000 delivers these advantages to a host of new applications and customers including cloud computing, financial operations, and life sciences. We’re excited about this new addition to the CX family and the benefits and value it will bring to our customers.”
