Telus deploys Fujitsu Flashwave packet ONPs

For its converged Packet/TDM optical network

By CBR Staff Writer

Fujitsu said that Telus has selected its Flashwave Packet Optical Networking Platforms (Packet ONPs) for its converged Packet/TDM optical network. This network will enable IP, ethernet and optical services and create an infrastructure that will enable development and use of new multimedia applications by its business and residential customers.

According to Fujitsu, Telus has begun the deployment of the Fujitsu Flashwave9500 and Flashwave 4100 ES Packet ONPs. Network planning, management, and professional services support are being provided by the complete line of Fujitsu Netsmart software offeirngs and Network Life Cycle Services.

The company said that the pluggable ROADM option and universal switch fabric of the Flashwave 9500 Packet ONP allows both ethernet and Sonet/SDH traffic to be transported in their framing formats to create an optical infrastructure. The Flashwave 4100 ES micro packet ONP offers 2RU modular offering for concentrations of DS1, DS3, and ethernet services.

Both platforms include integrated connection-oriented ethernet technology that delivers the interface flexibility, statistical multiplexing and packet aggregation benefits of ethernet with the QoS performance and security of Sonet/SDH, the company said.

Reportedly, Telus is using the Netsmart 2000 network design and planning tool to input communication requirements and develop network designs. Operations, administration, maintenance and provisioning tasks are simplified through Telus use of the Fujitsu Netsmart1500 Element Management System (EMS) and Netsmart 500 Graphical User Interface (GUI). These platforms are expected to deliver service provisioning, database management, fault sectionalisation and reporting required for the operation of optical networks.

Zouheir Mansourati, vice president of technology strategy for Telus, said: “The Fujitsu Flashwave 9500 Packet ONP combines the functionality of connection-oriented ethernet and Sonet/SDH with the flexibility of a Roadm in a single shelf. This combination enables faster time to market, provides greatly expanded capacity for video and wireless applications, and lowers the cost of delivering next-generation and legacy services.”
