Nayna Networks, Inc. (OTCBB:NAYN), a provider of next generation network solutions, today unveiled it has added the AN12000 to its global ExpressLIGHT product offerings. The AN12000 provides next generation Ethernet over SONET/SDH (EOS) and OC-12/STM-4 capability to Nayna's ExpressLIGHT SONET/SDH product line. The new ExpressLIGHT platform delivers a number of dramatic improvements over existing SONET/SDH products including:
-- Ethernet Over SONET/SDH (EOS): The advanced AN12000 uses the
critical new technology of Virtual Concatenation (VCat) to solve
service providers' need for flexible bandwidth for packetized
Ethernet streams over SONET/SDH hierarchical structures. The
AN12000 fragments the Ethernet payload and distributes it among
multiple SONET/SDH containers. In this way SONET/SDH networks can
retain their structured, channelized hierarchical frame structures
while at the same time carving out different sized Ethernet
streams within a SONET/SDH pipe.
-- One Solution for both Add/Drop and Terminating Sites: The
ExpressLIGHT AN12000 handles both Add/Drop (in-the-middle) and
terminating (end-to-end) Ethernet over SONET/SDH applications.
Logistics and training are simplified because a single AN12000 can
be configured as an Add/Drop Multiplexer (ADM) for cost effectively
implementing multiple (in-the-middle) sites often used by service
providers and as an end-subscriber Terminating Multiplexer (TM).
Terminal Multiplexers are often found at larger subscriber
buildings and at end-of-link locations. In summary, one system
addresses several types of site locations with reduced logistical
and operating costs.
-- Multiple Services & Multiple Traffic Types: The AN12000 is a
multiple service/traffic type platform with built-in Generic
Framing Protocol (GFP) capabilities for future-proofing the
deployed network. Service providers and larger enterprises use GFP
to encapsulate variable length payloads of various client traffic
types for subsequent transport over SONET/SDH networks. The
advantage of GFP is that it provides a unified way to encapsulate
various traffic types without the need for specific application
recapping throughout the network. The result is lower complexity
and overall lower lifetime ownership costs.
-- Integrated Grooming Matrix Reduces Waste: To eliminate significant,
but common, wastage of bandwidth in SONET/SDH networks, the AN12000
incorporates a state-of-the-art groom matrix for finer routing
granularity. The base AN12000 can deliver 756 x 756 VC 12
granularity, non-blocking and full function integrated cross
connect switch fabric with an option for an enhanced 1008 x 1008
matrix. Fine grooming allows service providers to effectively
integrate voice, data, and streaming media traffic in a variety of
bandwidth savings configurations. The bandwidth saved can then be
resold to increase revenues.
-- Hitless Capacity Resizing: For greatly enhanced service quality,
the ExpressLIGHT AN12000 relies on a sophisticated Link Capacity
Adjustment Scheme (LCAS) to provide hitless link capacity resizing.
As not a single bit will be lost, hitless resizing in metropolitan
areas can potentially save thousands of subscribers from traffic
interruption. LCAS provides two mission critical functions for
carriers' EOS networks: accommodating shifting bandwidth
requirements without traffic loss and bandwidth and the money
saving ability to reroute traffic to recover stranded bandwidth.
-- Variety of Interfaces in a compact size: The multi-service AN12000
SONET/SDH platform uniquely supports 10/100BaseT/FX Ethernet and
1000Base LH/LX Gigabit Ethernet (for computer support) as well as
the full range of TDM interfaces from T1/E1 (for PBX support) to
STM-1 within a single compact unit measuring just 7 inches (4 Rack
Units/RU) tall. That is a 60% space savings compared to traditional
SONET/SDH multiplexers that can be as tall as 10 rack units. The
AN12000's smaller size directly results in lower monthly real
estate savings at both the central office and at remote locations.
-- Designed for Reliability: For improved reliability and reduced
costs associated with downtime, the AN12000 can provide full
redundancy. For ease of maintenance, all cards can be quickly
hot-swapped without powering down the entire system. To further
improve reliability and uptime, all fans and associated
electromechanical sub-systems have been eliminated. The elimination
of forced cooling also results in monthly energy savings for the
-- Fast Service Activation: A key challenge for service providers is
the ability to offer service activation with an assured subscriber
experience. To meet the service activation challenge, Nayna has
embellished the AN12000 with superior intelligence and management
capability. Using robust and field proven SNMP technology, the
AN12000 can be remotely managed from an industry compliant SNMP v2c
manager. By using an SNMP foundation, Nayna Networks enables service
providers to integrate the benefits of the AN12000 into their
existing multi-vendor networks with maximum usability.
Current users of the AN3000 can upgrade to the AN12000 in the field with minimal network downtime.
"The AN12000 is a very cost-effective solution for service providers who need increased capacity on their SONET/SDH networks," noted Jim Connor, Director of Marketing, Nayna Networks, Inc. "In applications such as wireless backhaul, business parks, or even apartment blocks, the AN12000 is an optimal solution to meet the need to expand, upgrade and support Ethernet over existing fiber."
