Matisse Obtains NEBS L3 for its EtherBurst Optical Packet Transport

Matisse Networks has received NEBS Level 3 Certification from MET Laboratories for its EtherBurst products. The NEBS Certification is required for deployment in service provider central offices.

To obtain the certification, the EtherBurst product portfolio was subject to extensive testing covering Ambient Temperature and Humidity, Equipment Handling, Resistance to Fire, Earthquake Survivability, Vibration, Airborne Contaminants, ESD, Emissions, and AC Power Fault. Complete compliance to all NEBS specifications ensures that the equipment being deployed is acceptable for use in service provider central offices.


Matisse's EtherBurst architecture, which has been shipping since last year, integrates Ethernet and WDM technologies. The system that applies the principles of packet switching to the optical layer. Instead of dedicated optical circuits, the goal is a more highly efficient, layer 2 packet-switched photonic layer. Etherburst relies on Matisse's patented 10 Gbps "Tango" optical burst transponder, which is capable of tuning and locking to any wavelength in the ITU C-band in nanoseconds. Matisse is using off-the-shelf, commercially available tunable lasers along with its own silicon and intellectual property. Burst scheduling, collision avoidance and quality of service (802.1 p and DiffServ) enforcement are provided by Matisse Network's patented "MeshWave" packet processor.
