According to Insight's newly-released market analysis report, "The All-Optical Network: The Roles of Hybrid Transfer Nodes for Optimization in SONET, DWDM and MPLS Metro and Long Haul Networks 2008-2013," the advantages of all-optical networking includes greater flexibility in routing and switching optical signals, low cost, zero-interference processing of signals at intermediate nodes, and the elimination of optical-electronic-optical conversion of signals.
In a separate announcement, MRV also debuted a Gigabit / 10-Gigabit Metro Ethernet switching module for the LambdaDriver, making it the industry's first packet optical networking solution to support both ROADM (all optical - or OOO) and optical-electronic-optical (OEO) cross connect functionality in the same chassis.
The OSN regenerator provides an optical-electronic-optical (O/E/O) function that enables it to be used at terminal sites as a transponder for converting short-reach (or legacy) optics into long-reach optics or as a regenerator at line sites.
Noam Lotan, president and CEO, MRV Communications, commented, "The development of Optical Crossing's SOAs is a step forward in the development of all-optical networks, as it will allow signals to remain in the optical domain and reduce the number of optical-electronic-optical (OEO) conversions required in a network.
