Fujitsu Packet Optical Networking Platform Gains U.S. Approval

Fujitsu's FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform (Packet ONP) has been added to the U.S. government's Unified Capabilities (UC) Approved Products List (APL). The FLASHWAVE 9500 joins the FLASHWAVE 4100 ES micro Packet ONP and FLASHWAVE 4500 Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP), among other Fujitsu platforms, on this list of approved products for deployment by the U.S. government.

The FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP simultaneously supports Connection-oriented Ethernet (COE), ROADM and SONET/SDH transport technologies. By combining circuit and packet-based switching the FLASHWAVE 9500 platform enables a migration away from disparate legacy technologies toward a ubiquitous, secure and highly reliable converged Global Information Grid (GIG).
