Packet Optical Networking Platform

The communications world is changing, led into new territory by accelerating demand for high-bandwidth, high-quality multimedia packet based services and continued growth in every communications market.
Pressure is building behind the pace of change: pressure to deliver high quality of service, to respond to unpredictable demand, and to minimize costs and provisioning time. Your network must be ready to meet the oncoming wave, and remain responsive to the unknown directions around the next corner.
Now a lasting technology foundation is available. The Fujitsu FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform (Packet ONP) is a whole new class of optical networking system that meets the high expectations of the new, media-rich network world.
The FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP provides the modular, chassis-level fusion of Connection-oriented Ethernet, ROADM and SONET/SDH transport technologies built on a single addressable optical network class element. It fulfils network aggregation and transport infrastructure needs, delivering high bandwidth, high quality packet-based services in today's multi-protocol packet environment.

Innovative Features of the FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP

  • NETSMARTĀ® point-and-click GUI simplifies end-to-end network management

100G Technology

The FLASHWAVE 9500 platform incorporates 100G coherent optics technology to support 100G core network element interconnection and fiber plant conservation. This affords a tenfold improvement in overall network capacity, and eliminates the need for costly and disruptive overlay networks. The units are available as both 100G transponders and 100G muxponders, which can be used to transport and aggregate 10 GbE, OC192, STM64, and OTU2 client services, maintaining a flexible OTN DWDM-based core growth strategy. Fujitsu is an industry leader in the development of 100G technologies, optical components, and modules that are widely used throughout the industry.

High-Density ROADM

The integrated, pluggable ROADM modules provide capacity scaling and enable future network growth and flexibility. By simply installing additional ROADM modules, a hub site can support from 2D to 12D configurations for mesh network wavelength mapping. The central switch fabric optimizes the ROADM technology through sub-wavelength grooming and aggregation. Carriers have the flexibility to mix and match wavelength services as needed, supporting up to 88 channels of 10G, 40G, 100G wavelengths, along with the capacity to support their future network requirements.

Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) Applications

Many applications require service aggregation and switching for SONET/SDH, Ethernet, and OTN services. Traditionally, these services were supported by separate platforms, one for each technology. The FLASHWAVE 9500 platform supports a centralized switch fabric that is capable of switching and grooming all of the technologies within a single, common system. In addition, multiservice, multirate modules are available where each port can be provisioned independently to support OC-3/12/48, STM-1/4/16 or GbE services. The ability to offer multiple service types on one card minimizes spares inventory and operational training.
