Mexico's MetroNet Deploys Metro 10GE MPLS Ring with Orckit-Corrigent

MetroNet, which provides wholesale fiber optic service for telecommunications carriers in Mexico, has deployed a 10GE MPLS metro ring in Mexico using Orckit-Corrigent's CE+T solution. The recently deployed network upgrade enables MetroNet to bring 10G Ethernet with multilayer OAM and protection mechanisms to its "Carrier of Carriers" network. Financial terms were not disclosed.

MetroNet is using Orckit-Corrigent's standard and interoperable Layer 2 MPLS to deliver scalable and affordable Carrier's Carrier infrastructure, increasing their number of subscribers, services, and Gigabit Ethernet links. Orckit-Corrigent implements Layer 2 MPLS on a carrier Ethernet switch at the first level of metro aggregation.
