"We have identified strong demand from our customers and prospects for a smooth migration from their existing legacy SDH networks to an end to end future proof, packet based infrastructure which supports the mix of emerging data services together with large scale of legacy SDH/PDH leased lines" said Mr. Sharon Mantin, Vice President, Marketing, at Orckit-Corrigent. "Adding the CM-401x product line to our PTN product portfolio, improves our end-to-end PTN offering from access to core edge enabling cost-effective, highly scalable and future proof solution for 2G/3G/4G Mobile Backhauling as well as Ethernet and legacy SDH/PDH business services."
