Korean telecommunications service provider DACOM has selected Metrobility Optical Systems' optical Ethernet solutions to create a next-generation metro Ethernet network throughout Korea to deliver advanced services, including video and music streaming, through scalable broadband ISP services. DACOM anticipates installing up to $200,000 worth of Metrobility product monthly over the next year.

The network will use Metrobility's chassis-based line cards to link dual 100-Mbit/sec fiber lines at the customer concentration node to an RS3000 router at the DACOM network operation center (NOC). Metrobility's management functions enable NOC staff to identify failed links, monitor optical power, initiate remote loopback testing, and dynamically allocate bandwidth, claim company representatives.

"Because the customer site may be up to 70 km from the NOC, the ability to detect link failure and re-establish links without a truck roll is critical to our service commitment," explains Park Young-shin, senior vice president of DACOM's Internet business division. "We have worked closely with Metrobility to design a network that provides these features in a reliable, cost-effective platform."

Metrobility Optical Systems (Merrimack, NH) manufactures carrier-class optical access and connectivity platforms with WAN manageable features designed to simplify service providers' provisioning tasks. For more information, visit the company's Web site at www.metrobility.com.

DACOM operates the Internet Leased Line service Boranet, which has a large number of corporate subscribers in Korea; the Korea Internet Data Center (KIDC), equipped with the largest Internet backbone network infrastructure in the nation; and e-Biz, a total Internet solutions offering.
