Lambda OpticalSystems to Demonstrate
GMPLS Interoperability at iPOP 2006
Dr. Payam Torab of Lambda will present
a paper on transparent waveband/wavelength switching and GMPLS during
RESTON, VA, JUNE 21, 2006
- Lambda OpticalSystems, the leading provider of all-optical switching
solutions, today announced that its LambdaNode™ 3000 Optical
Cross Connect (OXC) system will be part of the GMPLS (Generalized
Multiprotocol Label Switching) interoperability public demonstration
at The International Conference on IP + Optical Networks (iPOP 2006)
this week. The LambdaNode 3000 OXC is part of a multi-vendor network
at the event and will demonstrate interoperability with high speed
core routers and ROADMS (reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers),
in conjunction with Lambda’s partner, Itochu Techno-Science
“We’re pleased to be able
to demonstrate the ability of the LambdaNode 3000 intelligent OXC
to interoperate with several major networking vendors,” said
Irfan Ali, Lambda’s president and CEO. “The LambdaNode
3000 OXC incorporates an all-optical fabric with dynamic GMPLS control
plane for metro and long-haul locations, gives carriers faster provisioning
of wavelength, waveband or fiber signals, and adds dynamic protection
and restoration to static DWDM transport networks.”
As part of iPOP 2006 network, the
LambdaNode 3000 OXC will demonstrate fast provisioning over multiple
networks with interoperability between OXC mesh networks and ROADMs,
as well as interoperability between MPLS and GMPLS networks. Adding
the LambdaNode 3000 to an existing wave division multiplexing (WDM)
network enables carriers to provide intelligent path routing, mesh
network protection that make networks more dynamic and survivable.
The system is designed to upgrade an existing static, single- or
multi-wavelength optical transport network into a dynamic application-driven
The conference brings together representatives
of industry and academia to discuss and share knowledge, findings,
and experience in state-of-the-art IP and optical networking technologies.
The event will be held at Meiji Kinenkan in Tokyo June 22 and 23.
Payam Torab, Ph.D., systems architect
at Lambda OpticalSystems, will present a paper on Thursday, June
23, entitled, “Transparent Waveband/Wavelength Switching and
GMPLS.” The paper will focus on the CapEx savings and network
efficiencies achieved by deploying these technologies.
