50-millisecond mesh network restoration demonstrates the fruit of our efforts to introduce GMPLS
networking standards into our future network, and reduces the capital cost of growing and integrating our optical networks," said Dr.
Agilent N2X was also the test solution used at the event for MPLS/GMPLS
interworking; specifically, to establish and verify label-switched paths (LSPs) across multiple GMPLS
device types, including Lambda, Fibre and Time Division (TDM) switching.
In a multi-vendor test that included core IP routers as client devices, SN 16000 optical switches successfully demonstrated dynamic, end-to-end provisioning of 10 Gigabit Ethernet Label Switched Paths (LSPs) in a hybrid IP/Optical application using GMPLS
User Network Interface (UNI) control plane signaling.
During this test event, Sycamore demonstrated dynamic end-to-end 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in a hybrid IP/optical network using GMPLS
control plane technology," said Kevin Oye, vice president of systems and technology at Sycamore Networks.
It was successfully demonstrated that services carried across GMPLS
Label Switched Paths (LSP) were not affected by control plane failures, and implementations were interoperable.
Sprint Managed Network Services (MNS) provides a broad range of converged services, including security, voice and data with leading IP GMPLS
The conference includes presentations by industry-leading experts addressing the latest developments in IP, MPLS, GMPLS
, and related networking technologies.
