Geyser Networks to participate in OIF's demonstration at SuperComm 2001, showcases Optical Services Manager and interoperability

May 22, 2001--Geyser Networks Inc., a provider of optical communication systems for multi-media service delivery, announced its participation in Optical Internetworking Forum's (OIF) Interoperability Demonstration at SuperComm 2001 in Atlanta.

Geyser Networks Inc., a provider of optical communication systems for multi-media service delivery, announced its participation in Optical Internetworking Forum's (OIF) Interoperability Demonstration at SuperComm 2001 in Atlanta, June 3-7. Geyser Networks will showcase its flagship product, the OSM-4800 Optical Services Manager and its interoperability with Optisphere's metro DWDM system via the new UNI (User to Network Interface) 1.0 Protocol.

Under the auspices of the Internet Engineering Task Force, the UNI 1.0 Protocol allows client devices to discover optical network resources and dynamically establish clear optical circuit connections. Optical internetworking between data and transmission equipment has previously been confined to single-vendor strategies implemented within a carrier network. OIF's UNI Interoperability Demo will highlight true optical internetworking that will enhance the advent of optical network services deployed by carriers. At this event, Geyser Networks will demonstrate UNI Client and Network signaling functionality, which will enable Geyser to provide carriers dynamic bandwidth services using an industry standard protocol.

Using current technology, sending high-bandwidth content across metropolitan area networks requires manual, time-intensive mapping and provisioning from a centralized management location. By adding new intelligence within each node on the network, the UNI Protocol distributes the routing decisions across the network, enabling advanced optical network services across multi-vendor, multi-service networks.
