DENVER, USA: Sorrento Networks, a global provider of metro optical access solutions, is making it easier for service providers to monitor the health of their optical networks with a new version of its GigaMux 3200 management software.
The updated software, which is used to manage Sorrento’s GigaMux 3200 and 1600 wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) systems, includes a comprehensive performance monitoring package for faster and more precise detection of optical network errors. Also new with software version 7.4.12 is a more robust reporting tool that gives customers more flexibility and presentation options for their error reporting.
“Service-oriented networking requires controlling the performance of the optical networking and understanding errors at a detailed level so they can be quickly corrected and prevented,” said Jim Nevelle, CEO of Sorrento Networks.
“Our updated software gives GigaMux 3200 and 1600 customers even more insight into the functioning of their optical networks so they can accomplish these tasks with greater ease of use.”
Sorrento’s updated software improves the ability of service providers to actively monitor optical networks to help in the detection and prevention of network errors. It conducts per-wavelength optical-layer performance monitoring and delivers detailed insight into device utilization and errors, as well as the fault management of the network.
The GigaMux 3200/1600 platform is designed to free carriers from restrictive transport technologies and provide system flexibility to accommodate changing end-user demands.
A protocol-independent design allows the GigaMux 3200 and 1600 systems to transport and extend the traffic of SONET/SDH, layer 2/3 Ethernet, and SANs simultaneously and in their native format. By supporting each traffic type natively, the network can grow and evolve based on traffic requirements.
Sorrento’s new management software, which comes bundled with the GigaMux 3200/1600 platform, is now available worldwide.
