Enablence Technologies Inc., a supplier of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) equipment for triple-play residential and business services and optical components and subsystems for access, metro, and long-haul markets, is increasing the bandwidth capabilities of its MAGNM Multi Media Aggregation Node and TRIDENT7 Universal Access Platform with a new family of high-performance Fabric Modules.

FEBRUARY 18, 2010 -- Enablence Technologies Inc., a supplier of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) equipment for triple-play residential and business services and optical components and subsystems for access, metro, and long-haul markets, is increasing the bandwidth capabilities of its MAGNM Multi Media Aggregation Node and TRIDENT7 Universal Access Platform with a new family of high-performance Fabric Modules.

The development of these fabric switching modules is an important milestone for Enablence as it strives to provide the market with platforms that can be seamlessly upgraded as network requirements evolve, according to a company representative. This is the culmination of the first development effort that leverages core technology for deployment on both the MAGNM and TRIDENT7 platforms to help service providers and network operators manage ever-increasing traffic demands brought about by bandwidth intensive applications, such as IPTV, HDTV, interactive video, and online gaming.

These redundant, non-blocking modules are optimized for bandwidth intensive FTTx applications where multiple 10 Gigabit Ethernet transport links are required. They provide a 10X performance increase over the current MAGNM and TRIDENT switch modules, and can be deployed in any MAGNM and TRIDENT already in service.

MAGNM is Enablence’s fully distributed IP/Ethernet-based multi-service access platform purpose-built for broadband access and aggregation. It is the ideal platform to support carriers that are moving to an all IP/Ethernet-based advanced communications network, but are still operating an existing copper-based infrastructure that must co-exist with the new fiber build and be managed with the same system.

The TRIDENT7 is an IP/Ethernet-based system geared towards large muni-power fiber deployments by network operators and open access service providers. It is ideal for new greenfield developments, as well as fiber overbuilds of existing network infrastructure. TRIDENT7 is the only platform currently available that provides network operators with the most options by supporting, from a common platform, all three standards for FTTH deployment generally in use – ITU G.984 GPON, IEEE 802.3 GE-PON (EFM PON), and IEEE 802.3 Point-to-Point.

“With the addition of these new switching modules, MAGNM and TRIDENT7 have become massively scalable systems that provide the horsepower to meet the bandwidth challenges service providers across the globe face on their networks today and into the future,” says Tim Thorsteinson, president and COO of Enablence. “This is an important milestone for Enablence as we were able to design a single architecture that supports both of our flagship product lines.”
