Bright House Networks Picks Fujitsu FLASHWAVE for 100G Metro

Bright House Networks, the sixth largest cable operator in the U.S., has selected the Fujitsu FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform (Packet ONP) to bring 100G performance to the provider’s metro networks.

Fujitsu Network Communications has been a long term supplier to Bright House Networks.
The FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP enables the carrier to significantly expand its network capacity, improve spectral efficiency and lower the cost per bit of optical transport by capitalizing on the platform’s ability to deliver 100G per second bandwidth on each of 88 channels.  In addition to its high performance, the FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP features Soft-decision FEC (Forward Error Correction), a third-generation encoding algorithm that enables longer distances and fewer regenerations on 100G optical networks, helping operators like Bright House Networks meet the ever-increasing demand for high-speed data services.

Fujitsu professional services have also delivered value by providing Bright House Networks with Engineering, Furnish, Installation and Network Testing; and the multiple service operator has employed Fujitsu’s NETSMART 2000 network planning and design software along with the NETSMART 1500 network management application.

“Our partnership with Fujitsu allows us to provide approximately 2.5 million business and residential customers across five states the latest in communications performance, dependability and value-added services,” said Craig Cowden, Senior Vice President, NEO and Enterprise Solutions, Bright House Networks.
