Optelian strategy leads to Intuitive Packet Optical Networking

Optical transport systems developer Optelian has taken the wraps off of its Intuitive Packet Optical Networking strategy. The initiative aims to virtualize the underpinning technology of Layer 0, 1, and 2 infrastructure and therefore decrease its complexity. The result is faster deployment of Ethernet and wavelength services, Optelian says.

Optical transport systems developer Optelian has taken the wraps off of its Intuitive Packet Optical Networking strategy. The initiative aims to virtualize the underpinning technology of Layer 0, 1, and 2 infrastructure and therefore decrease its complexity. The result is faster deployment of Ethernet and wavelength services, Optelian says.

Intuitive Packet Optical Networking appears first in the company’s PKX-1640 Packet Networking Card, a 20-port, 200-Gbps Carrier Ethernet switch. Using MPLS-TP technology, the card provides Ethernet service aggregation and multiplexing, OAM, rapid protection switching, and MEF-standardized Carrier Ethernet 2.0 services. The card leverages such existing Optelian systems as the MPX-9110 Flexible 100G Platform and the OMS-7190 and OMS-2190 platforms.

“Intuitive Packet Optical Networking combines the advantages of packet networking with WDM, OTN, ROADM, and TDM transport, to enable Service-Driven Networking,” said Optelian CEO David Weymouth. “We are changing the game by simplifying provisioning and management of services across these technologies. You provision the network by simply defining services. No Ph.D. required!”

Optelian discussing the Intuitive Packet Optical Networking strategy as well as the PKX-1640 this week at CommunicAsia, booth BJ2-06 and in the Canada pavilion.
