Overture Interoperates with Cyan's Packet Optical Transport Platforms

Overture Networks has completed interoperability testing between its UTS4000 Carrier Ethernet edge and aggregation solutions and Cyan's Z-Series multi-layer transport platforms. The Overture Intelligent edge enables fine-grain Ethernet service management and converged DS1 services to cell sites for 3G and 4G applications and to enterprise locations for IP and Ethernet service delivery. Cyan multi-layer transport platforms integrate DWDM, wavelength switching, and 1GigE/10GigE Ethernet switching into a large-scale transport and aggregation solution. The combined solution offers the following advantages:

  • Converged Ethernet and DS1 pseudowire services over a Native Ethernet infrastructure

  • Integrated Ethernet and DWDM transport/switching for increased CAPEX efficiency and scalability

  • High scalability and CAPEX savings for Native Ethernet aggregation vs. standalone Ethernet switches or SONET
