Xtera Adds 100G OTN Switching to Transport Platform

Xtera Communications introduced OTN switching capabilities on its 100G optical networking platform.

The Xtera Nu-Wave Optima now offers a stand-alone or integrated switching and transport solution.  Benefits include scalable transport and switching capacity, efficient capacity utilization in backbone networks, high manageability on per service and per wavelength basis, fast service provisioning, quick failure protection, and policy-based restoration.  The switching capacity is 2.4 Tb/s per shelf, upgradable in a hitless way to 21.6-Tb/s capacity in a single-stage switch fabric.

"By introducing OTN switching to our best in class 100G and optical amplification technologies, Xtera positions itself as the supplier of choice for optical networking solutions offering capacity efficiency, resiliency and flexibility to handle any type of services for maximizing the revenues of the service providers,” said Philippe Perrier, SVP, Product Line Manager Long-Haul Optical Transport of Xtera.  “With an innovative design for the core of our OTN switch allowing a maximum switching capacity in excess of several hundreds of Tb/s, Xtera confirms again its technical leadership by introducing new technologies and industry-leading capacity and flexibility."
