Sycamore Networks has reported that NTT Communications (NTT Com) has selected Sycamore DNX-11/88 and ENvision Plus multiservice access and network management platforms to perform key service access and delivery roles in NTT Com’s global multiservice network.
The DNX multiservice access platform aggregates, grooms, and enhances network services ranging from traditional leased lines to dynamic IP VPNs while providing automated protection mechanisms for specific service types. The DNX platform allows NTT Com to upgrade existing network nodes and functions with a single intelligent system, which Sycamore says will lead to simpler operations, space savings, cost optimization, and improved economies of scale, immediately and as the network grows.
“We are extremely pleased that NTT Com has chosen to partner with Sycamore as they evolve the access portion of their multiservice network,” says Daniel E. Smith, Sycamore’s president and chief executive officer. “NTT Com is widely recognized for their award-winning services portfolio, and we look forward to helping them continue their track record of success with our DNX solutions.”
DNX systems also are designed to provide monitoring and diagnostic capabilities that support remote management and unattended operation while maintaining a high level of network availability. ENvision Plus network management software works with DNX platforms to automate and simplify provisioning, streamline event and alarm management processes through filtering tools, and provide visual test access and line diagnostics. Other capabilities include multilevel topology views, advanced bandwidth reporting utilities for switch fabric management, and an architecture designed to simplify integration into existing operational support systems such as those of NTT Com.
