Lucent Technologies and Movaz Networks have jointly developed a new metro optical system designed to help service providers address both their internal needs and their business customers’ demand for bandwidth-intensive networks. Metropolis Wavelenght Services Manager (WSM) is expected to be generally available this week.
Lucent has described WSM, as a new metro dense wavelength division (DWDM) product that will help service providers deliver cost-effective optical bandwidth directly to their customers’ premises, meeting their wavelength needs in the metro access, interoffice and regional application spaces. WSM is fully integrated into Lucent’s existing optical networking portfolio, including the Metropolis Enhanced Optical Networking (EON), a 32-channel metro DWDM system, and also fully supported by Lucent’s Navis Optical Management System and Lucent Worldwide Services (LWS).
According to Lucent, the fixed-network division of Deutsche Telekom, T-Com, will start testing this system during the summer, to support its network expansion to meet its business and residential customers’ growing bandwidth demand for high-bandwidth applications.
