services to their customers

    MONTREAL, September 18 /CNW/ - Aethera Networks(TM), a globally focused
company delivering agile solutions for multi-service access, edge aggregation
and wireless backhaul networking, announced today that its AEX-200(TM)
micro-footprint multi-service switching and provisioning platform (uMsXP) has
been verified interoperable with next-generation SONET and Carrier Ethernet
network elements from other leading vendors, in addition to widely deployed
OSIRIS(TM) network elements. Interoperability was verified through extensive
service provider lab testing and field-validated by an extended live-traffic
deployment at a leading US cable MSO.

    Scalable to 10Gbps line-rates within a compact 2U shelf, the AEX-200
enables a high-density mix of MEF-Certified Carrier Ethernet and legacy TDM
services, optimized for demanding business access, edge-aggregation and
wireless backhaul applications. The AEX-200 is easily provisioned within
existing multi-vendor metro/aggregation Unidirectional Path Switched or
Subnetwork Connection Protection rings (UPSR/SNCP). Featuring
MEF-Certification, the AEX-200 is also interoperable with other vendors'
Carrier Ethernet offerings.

    In addition, the AEX-200 offers complete interoperability with
internationally deployed OSIRIS MSPs at the management, physical and data
planes. Aethera Networks' AE-VUE(TM) element management system (EMS) provides
integrated Carrier Ethernet/TDM service provisioning and standards-based
network monitoring.

    "Service providers, cable MSOs and wireless operators worldwide are
facing ever-increasing demand for Ethernet-enabled triple-play services.
Despite tight budgets, operators need to adapt their networks to deliver these
real-time, bandwidth intensive applications," explained Sami Yazdi, President
& CEO of Aethera Networks. "The AEX-200 multi-service uMSxP provides a
flexible, carrier-grade transition from legacy to packet-based services and
scales capacity as adoption accelerates, helping operators to establish a
long-term competitive edge."
