Meriton Announces Deployments by Internet2, SEEREN2

Internet2 has deployed Meriton Networks' Agile Optical Networking platforms to add capacity and additional flexibility to enable the best connectivity to its nationwide infrastructure. The new link to the Internet2 network provides strategic connectivity between Internet2's head office in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Level3 Communications Point of Presence in Chicago and the StarLight international exchange point site in Chicago. The deployment uses the Meriton 7200 OSP (Optical Switching Platform).

Separately, SEEREN2, the South-East European Research and Education Network, is deploying the Meriton 3300 OSM (Optical Services Multiplexer) to add capacity to its network infrastructure. SEEREN2 is led by GRNET, the Greek national research and education network and involves the research and education networks of nine different countries including Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, FYR of Macedonia, Montenegro, Greece, Hungary, Romania, and Serbia. SEEREN2 will integrate with the GEANT2 pan-European multi-gigabit network. SEEREN2 is using the Meriton 3300 OSM platform's CWDM in phase one and considering DWDM an option for future phases.
