Transmode Announces Launch of PT-Fabric


Nice, France:

Transmode, a global supplier of packet optical networking solutions, today announced the launch of the PT-Fabric, a next-generation modular terabit switching solution that takes Packet Transport and Ethernet switching in metro access, metro aggregation and metro core networks to terabit levels and 100G networking.

Transmode’s new PT-Fabric extends the company’s Native Packet Optical architecture to terabit switching with a new optical frontplane-equipped EMXP III switching unit supporting up to 960Gbit/s of switching in a single module. The innovative optical frontplane takes VCSEL (vertical cavity surface emitting laser) technology used in supercomputing and brings it to data transport equipment for the first time. This new frontplane is used to create the PT-Fabric by interconnecting the EMXP III switch with 10G and 100G I/O modules or directly to local third-party switches or routers.
