Meriton Networks wins IEC InfoVision Award for Metro Network Technologies & Services

    Meriton's International CET Technology Leadership Recognized as 7200 OSP
    Claims Top Honor

    OTTAWA, Oct. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - Meriton Networks Inc., a leader in emerging
Carrier Ethernet Transport (CET) solutions, today announced that its 7200
Optical Switching Platform (OSP) has won the prestigious IEC InfoVision Award
for Metro Network Technologies and Services. A committee of senior industry
experts drawn from vendor companies, international service providers and
industry associations drove the judging process for the award, which was
presented at the IEC Broadband World Forum Europe conference in Berlin,
Germany. The awards are intended to recognize the technologies, applications,
products, advances and services judged as the most unique and beneficial to
the information and communications technologies (ICT) industry.
    "We are honoured to receive this important industry award, as it affirms
growing market recognition of the tremendous value our Carrier Ethernet
Transport solutions give to service providers," said Ken Davison, vice
president of Marketing and Business Development, Meriton Networks. "The CET
capabilities of the 7200 OSP, which separate the service layer from the
underlying transport topology, are resonating with service providers across
the globe as they seek NGN architectural models that effectively support the
explosive growth in Ethernet and IP traffic while allowing them to realize the
promise of lower operating costs and increased management efficiencies."
    The Meriton CET Capability and Feature-Set, as implemented on the 7200
OSP, is a breakthrough architectural approach to building scalable transport
infrastructure for supporting Ethernet and the evolution to Next Generation
Networks (NGNs). CET combines the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of native
Ethernet with the reliability and power of WDM to deliver unparalleled
flexibility, efficiency and cost savings - particularly for interconnecting
Gigabit Ethernet. Meriton's leading CET technology delivers key networking
capabilities that allow carriers to meet the growth demands of the 'Ethernet
Explosion' while strengthening their networks to handle future,
as-yet-unknown, traffic demands.
    "We'd like to congratulate Meriton Networks for its CET on the 7200
Optical Switching Platform chosen for this highly-competitive, prestigious
InfoVision Award," commented IEC Vice President of Conference Development Tom
Costello. "I'm sure these innovative products and services will have a
long-lasting positive impact on the industry and we look forward to customers
enjoying the benefits of these innovations."
