Menara Awarded OTN "System-in-a-Module" Patent

Menara Networks was issued a U.S. patent (#7580637) for its proprietary approach to integrate ITU-T G.709 OTN framing, OAM processing, forward error correction, and other DWDM optical networking functions into various bit-rate, hot pluggable optical transceivers while at the same time preserving and adhering to the Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) aspects of the respective pluggable optical transceiver module. Menara has shipped the industry's first such product in 2007 in the form of a OTN DWDM XENPAK module.
