Optical Networking Edge (ONE)

The demand for bandwidth is exploding with the advent of rich multimedia services. Service providers continue to transform broadband networks to meet this need, however, when the core and/or access network performance is improved; the edge of the network inevitably becomes the new network bottleneck and the main component of growing operational expenditure.

We recognize the opportunity to leverage packet optical innovations, repurposing and right sizing this technology to redefine last mile access aggregation and thus blurring the network boundaries between access and transport. Our ONE solution leverages packet optical innovation and techniques to solve the capacity bottlenecks created by the aggregation of last-mile, high-bandwidth services to homes and businesses. This solution right sizes core packet optical technology and integrates fundamental voice, data and video service delivery capabilities for superior economics and maximum scale. Simply put, we uniquely enable service providers to eliminate the need to deploy a two box (metro/edge packet optical solution + MSAN) by delivering a high performance Optical Networking Edge solution that is fully integrated into the MSAN.

Key attributes include:

  • Right-sized optical networking: WDM, OTN, ROADM
  • Unmatched multi-service scalability
  • Pay-as-you-grow modularity
  • Accelerated time to revenue
  • Multi-layer services management
Exploit packet optical technology innovations to redefine and blur the traditional boundaries between the premium services access and next-generation transport networks
Simultaneously support/scale strict Ethernet service levels demanded by multiple mobile network operators by fully separating their services within a single fiber and single packet optical platform
Alternative to over-sized switch-routers. Provide a single, cost effective aggregation solution to reliably extend your provider edge to all of your residential, business and backhaul services
Deploy a next generation packet optical edge solution that effectively scales all next-generation IP and Ethernet services while also supporting legacy services and access facilities
