Fujitsu Network Communications Inc. (Booth 335), a supplier of IT and wireline/wireless networking solutions, is announcing new Ethernet access products that conform to the IEEE 802.3ah EFM standard. These solutions are backed by Fujitsu Network Life Cycle Services, a service and support portfolio that allows wireline carriers, wireless providers and MSOs to plan, deploy, maintain and enhance their networks and operations.
With Fujitsus solutions, users can leverage their diverse portfolio of carrier Ethernet, SONET and WDM products to help carriers create scalable voice, video and data delivery architectures.
For small-to-medium triple-play networks, carriers can use the dynamic Ethernet provisioning capabilities on the FLASHWAVE 4000 Multiservice Provisioning Platforms (MSPPs) and Atrica Optical Ethernet solutions. Both product families support provisioning of Ethernet private line, Ethernet virtual private line and Ethernet multipoint-to-multipoint services that are compliant with the specifications of the Metro Ethernet Forum.
For larger triple-play networks in metropolitan areas, carriers can leverage the generation-skipping switching technology inherent in the FLASHWAVE 7500 ROADM. Its new wavelength selective switch and advanced hubbing capabilities power the Fujitsu Metro Photonic Freeway, which eliminates the toll booths, potholes and traffic jams of todays metro networks by simplifying network planning, streamlining operating procedures, and providing a flexible, modular architecture that supports any service, anywhere, anytime.
In the optical and packet transport switching area, Fujitsu is highlighting its highly scalable and flexible FLASHWAVE 4500 multiservice switching platform and the FLASHWAVE 6400 Layer 2.5 aggregation platform.
These solutions allow wireless carriers to optimize their networks and prepare for widespread deployment of advanced fixed and mobile broadband services.
For multiservice packet networking, Fujitsu offers Ethernet over SONET solutions from the FLASHWAVE 4000 MSPPs; Ethernet over WDM solutions from the FLASHWAVE 7000 platforms; Ethernet access solutions from the new EFM portfolio; and carrier Ethernet solutions.
The companys service interworking solutions enable carriers to manage the transition to seamless, converged Ethernet-based access over a converged MPLS core. Ethernet service interworking and pseudowire capabilities, which are based on direct customer feedback, provide the means to migrate services, and the revenue associated with them, to this converged network, while simultaneously diminishing risk and leveraging the carriers existing network infrastructure investments.
