Verizon to Deploy Alcatel-Lucent's Breakthrough Wavelength Routing Solution for Optical Networks
FREMONT, CA: Alcatel-Lucent launches new technology that optimizes optical network performance. The latest wavelength routing enables optical network operators to respond to service requests with maximum speed and scale. Operators who have wavelength routing enabled in their optical networks can achieve greater network agility, easy troubleshooting, reduced power consumption, and reduced CAPEX.
Verizon will soon adopt this breakthrough technology in its ultra-longhaul optical network in North America. The wavelength routing solution is packaged into the Alcatel-Lucent 1830 Photonic Service Switch and consists of: Wavelength Routing Engine, CDC-F capable wavelength routing cards and modules, and full range of 1830 PSS chassis.
These components provide the optical fabric required for SDN-enabled networks. An SDN programmable integrated IP/optical network can be realized through a combination of the switch components and Alcatel-Lucent’s IP/MPLS components.
As Verizon plans to undergo transition to an optical converged infrastructure, the company has opted for Alcatel’s 1830 PSS converged WDM/OTN/Packet based-platform that will enable it to address booming mobile traffic as well as roll out new services in a faster and cost effective manner.
This next gen routing solution comprises of specialized CDC-F hardware and Wave Routing Engine (WRE) software that provides end-to-end wavelength routing deployment and management capabilities. The software oversees wavelength connectivity monitoring and quick troubleshooting of wavelength connectivity issues. These capabilities are critical for deploying wavelength routing in optical networks at scale.
CDC-F is the acronym for Colorless Directionless Contentionless-FlexiGrid. This technology that forms the underpinning for wavelength routing has been developed to boost network efficiency and minimize wavelength signal conversion costs.
