Metro-Optix to unveil "LANstream" Gigabit Ethernet, OC-192 and ATM traffic interfaces at SuperComm 2001

May 31, 2001
May 31, 2001--Metro-Optix announced that the company will feature its "LANstream" Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), OC-192 and ATM traffic routing capabilities of its CityStreamT platform during simulation demonstrations at SuperComm.

Metro-Optix announced that the company will feature its "LANstream" Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), OC-192 and ATM traffic routing capabilities of its CityStreamT platform during simulation demonstrations in booth #350 at SuperComm 2001 in Atlanta. The CityStream provides 100 percent TDM, ATM and IP scalability, with any ratio of TDM v. ATM v. IP services.

CityStream's GbE card will create powerful and flexible operational options for its carrier customers, including point-to-point transport, virtual LAN tagging and fully-routed services. A full feature set will include rate-limiting, virtual LAN ingress filtering and configurable transport bandwidth to accommodate different usage patterns. In addition to its new GbE card, the company will show its 10-Gigabit TDM (OC-192) and ATM cards at its SuperComm booth.

The company claims that CityStream is the only product that can deliver native protocol intelligence at the network's edge on a single shelf. Designed after consultation with carriers, CityStream offers strong support for yesterday's legacy networks, today's dense wavelength division multiplexing, and tomorrow's IP-centric metropolitan optical networks. With CityStream, carriers enjoy real protocol agility in any combination at their access points.

CityStream's applications, made possible in part by a core switching fabric that scales from 100 Gbps today to 400 Gbps, include ring aggregation, mesh topology, point-of-presence bandwidth management, service access multiplexing and DSLAM aggregation.

Metro-Optix is participating in and hosting several activities during SuperComm to highlight the capabilities, functionality and interoperability efforts of its bandwidth manager, CityStream. Metro-Optix also is participating in the OIF's User Network Interface (UNI) Interoperability Demonstration at SuperComm in booth #150D in the Georgia Dome.
