NEC Launches TDM/RPR Hybrid Multiplexer for 40 Gbps

NEC launched its new SpectralWave UN5000, a hybrid multiplexer that provides simultaneous Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) and Resilient Packet Ring (RPR) transport, in the Japanese market. The SpectralWave UN5000 was released for overseas telecommunications carriers in August 2006 and has been shipped to Rostelecom in Russia and at AIS in Thailand.

NEC's new product can be used to build 40 Gbps core networks. In addition to TDM and RPR, it also features RPR and Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS).
