Charter Supplies 10 Gbps Links for BMW's R&D Lab

Charter Communications is providing BMW with private, redundant connectivity for replicated data storage transport, as well as converging corporate data communications over redundant 10 Gigabit connections using Nortel's optical technology. The network is carrying multiple FibreChannel (FC-200) circuits and multiple gigabit Ethernet circuits between BMW's existing factory in Greer, South Carolina, and its new research facility at the nearby International Center for Automotive Research (ICAR) in Greenville, South Carolina.

Nortel's Optical Metro 5200 with new 10 Gbps multiservice cards is being used to converge up to 10 independent service connections over a single optical wavelength.
