June 22, 2004 Chicago--RBN Inc., designer and manufacturer of carrier-class reconfigurable optical transport systems for metro and access networks, launched GigaEdge 2330, a multiservice provisioning platform (MSPP) designed to provide carriers the ability to offer service on demand.

The GigaEdge 2330 will be on display at RBN's booth #11552 at Supercomm 2004 in Chicago. RBN's latest product offering has already received industry recognition and has won the SUPERQuest Award for best new optical networking product at Supercomm 2004.

The RBNi GigaEdge 2330 multiplexes SAN, Ethernet, SONET or SDH services onto a protected aggregate. It can be used in standalone configuration, or as a service aggregator into a SONET, SDH or WDM network. The use of SFP optics on all ports, standard GFP mapping and DCC management and a flexible 4*ANY service mix within the smallest possible carrier-class footprint makes the 2330 a versatile and easily integrated platform.

RBN recently announced a five-year reseller agreement with Marconi. The GigaEdge 2330 is included in this agreement and is available for sale worldwide through Marconi as well as RBN's other channel partners.

The development of the RBNi GigaEdge 2330 was supported by an AusIndustry Start Grant from the Australian Federal Government. RBN is headquartered in San Francisco, CA, with research and development facilities in Sydney, Australia.
