Vello Systems Delivers CX16000 Adaptive Optical System

CX16000 Based on Innovative Adaptive Optical Service Routing (AOSR) Technology Enables Simplified High-Capacity Networks Over Existing Infrastructure for Lower Costs

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - January 12, 2010) - Vello Systems, a leader in high performance optical networking systems, today announced that the 40G/100G CX16000 Adaptive Optical System has been deployed at several Tier 1 service providers to deliver high bandwidth capacity over existing 10G optical networks. The Vello Systems CX16000 is designed to meet the requirements of service providers worldwide who need to efficiently upgrade existing 10G fiber networks to 40G and 100G to support growing demand for bandwidth intensive services for homes and businesses. The CX16000 is based on Vello Systems' Adaptive Optical Service Routing™ (AOSR) technology.

AOSR employs advanced multiple carrier photonics to deliver 40G and 100G bandwidth per wavelength over any type of optical network from metro to ultra long haul, while maintaining compatibility with the characteristics of today's 10G optical infrastructure. The new AOSR-based CX16000 delivers Zero-touch Capacity Expansion to as high as 16 Tb/s. The CX16000 allows service providers to upgrade their existing 10G network incrementally with 40G and 100G wavelength overlays, which can be injected into existing network elements as external wavelengths, delivering substantial CAPEX and OPEX savings as compared to conventional 40G technology.

"The CX16000 Adaptive Optical System with AOSR technology provides the massively scalable bandwidth capacity along with the service flexibility that service providers need to meet the emerging demands from their subscribers," said Karl May, Chief Executive Officer, Vello Systems. "The CX16000 is the ideal platform for service providers facing subscriber demand for high-bandwidth services and needing to respond quickly and cost-effectively."

Vello Systems' AOSR technology also features advanced multi-level routing, including integrated packet switching and aggregation to deliver bandwidth-intensive services such as High Definition Video, Video on Demand, Wireless Backhaul, and Data Center interconnection quickly and cost-effectively. Packet aggregation significantly improves network capacity utilization and simplifies network hub locations by reducing the need for external routers. The CX16000's optimized, cost-effective support for Gigabit Ethernet is critical for emerging 4G/LTE wireless backhaul based on IP/Ethernet.

Thomas Eibeck, Chief Technical Officer of PrimaCom, a leading service provider in Germany, stated, "AOSR technology gives PrimaCom the scalable bandwidth capacity and the adaptable service flexibility we need to deliver advanced video, Internet and telephone services for our subscribers."

The Vello Systems CX16000 is based on a low latency, inherently non-blocking converged fabric supporting all protocols transparently, and is implemented using Vello Systems' Large Scale Photonics Integration for high bandwidth density, low space requirements, low power consumption and low heat dissipation.

"The CX16000 really does hit the mark for a highly economical and scalable option for 40/100G migration. The Vello Systems CX16000 allows carriers to deliver 40G or even 100G services over their existing 10G infrastructure without changing fiber type or the network equipment attached to it," said David Emberley, Research Manager for IDC's Telecommunications Equipment Practice. "Of note, the CX16000 meets the growing demand for flatter networks by collapsing multiple routing functions into a single device on the edge of the network, which translates into lower cost and lower power consumption for 'greener' network operation."

Michael Howard, principal analyst, carrier and data center networks, Infonetics Research, added, "Operating expenses -- in particular, power -- are becoming more critical components in calculating total cost of operating transport networks. Combining higher layer network functions with Large Scale Photonic Integration means Vello Systems' solutions can eliminate significant power cost from network operations. As we like to say, the glass is always greener!"

The 40G Vello Systems CX16000 Adaptive Optical System with AOSR technology is currently available.
