Vodafone Netherlands Deploys Sycamore SN 9000

Vodafone Netherlands has deployed Sycamore Networks' SN 9000 Intelligent Multiservice Switch to optimize and scale its mobile broadband service infrastructure. The SN 9000 leverages Sycamore's high-availability optical mesh technology to increase operational efficiencies and accelerate service provisioning, while providing a scalable foundation for next-generation, high-value mobile communications. Financial terms were not disclosed.


  • In September 2007, Sycamore Networks introduced its new SN 9000 optical switching platform designed for carrier applications in the 80-320 Gbps bandwidth range. The SN 9000 offers a non-blocking multiservice switch fabric that provides distributed, tiered grooming that improves bandwidth utilization across the network. The platform brings important new functionality to multiservice switching – including unique bandwidth capacity licensing, service modularity, and any-service, any-port features. These functions include low-order (VT/VC) and high-order (OC-n/STM-n) switching, add-drop multiplexing, advanced Ethernet services, and integrated optical transport.
