TELUS Deploys Fujitsu's FLASHWAVE

TELUS has selected Fujitsu's FLASHWAVE Packet Optical Networking Platforms (Packet ONPs) for its next-generation converged Packet/TDM optical network. The deployment features the Fujitsu FLASHWAVE 9500 and FLASHWAVE 4100 ES Packet ONPs. Network planning, management, and professional services support are being provided by the complete line of Fujitsu NETSMART software solutions and Network Life Cycle Services. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The Fujitsu FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP combines the functionality of Connection-oriented Ethernet and SONET/SDH with the flexibility of a ROADM in a single shelf. The pluggable ROADM option and patent-pending universal switch fabric of the FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP allow both Ethernet and SONET/SDH traffic to be transported in their native framing formats to create a universal optical infrastructure. The FLASHWAVE 4100 ES micro Packet ONP offers a compact 2RU (3.5") modular solution for high concentrations of DS1, DS3, and Ethernet services. Both platforms include integrated Connection-oriented Ethernet technology that delivers the interface flexibility, statistical multiplexing and packet aggregation benefits of Ethernet with the QoS performance and security of SONET/SDH.
