July 27, 2004 San Jose, CA--Nayna Networks is introducing three IEEE-compliant Ethernet in the first mile access switches. The new products build on Nayna's ExpressSTREAM platform to allow Gigabit per second delivery of triple play service to campus and high density residential and business buildings.
ExpressSTREAM allows providers to combine a wide array of IP and legacy (multi-service) traffic over virtually any point-to-point or point-to-multipoint (multi-network)topology. In campus or high rise settings, the new XE switches expand on this flexibility by bridging traditional carrier access and enterprise infrastructures, delivering reduced network operation costs through remote traffic monitoring, alarm reporting and configuration intelligence not available in local area network (LAN) switches.
The new products, available now, include the ExpressSTREAM XE-1100 (1.2-Gbit/sec throughput), the ExpressSTREAM XE-1200 Fiber Switch and the ExpressSTREAM XE-1400 Multi-port 3.2-Gbit/sec Switches. Standard and CWDM small form factor pluggable (SFP) transceivers are sold separately.
"Service providers like the hot swappable SFP Ethernet transceivers for long reach fiber interfaces available on ExpressSTREAM products, not only because they are convenient and less expensive, but because they come with pay-as-you-go economics," said Michael Howard, principal analyst of Infonetics Research. "The ExpressSTREAM's QoS features, including individual upstream and downstream per port rate control, enable service providers to offer new billable services that match changing enterprise needs."
"With their unique blend of fiber, copper and intelligence, the XE switches substantially simplify the physical wiring and logical layer management of service distribution," said Naveen Bisht, founder, president and chief executive of Nayna Networks. "They enable any provider to efficiently and cost-effectively offer value-added services via a variety of optimized topologies including point-to-point, daisy chain and add/drop configurations -- a key competitive differentiator."
