SEOUL, Korea and CHICAGO, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- SUPERCOMM 2009, Booth 3329 - ACTUS Networks, a global provider of Carrier Ethernet Access (CEA) solutions, announced today that it will demonstrate its new G.8032 2010-enabled Ganesh 300, Ganesh 200 CEA devices and SyncRing Ethernet Ring Protection (ERP) solutions at SUPERCOMM 2009 (Wed. Oct. 21 - Fri. Oct. 23) at McCormick Place in Chicago. ACTUS is the world's first company to commercialize the new ITU-T G.8032 2010 technology, which was consented on Oct. 9th 2009, to deliver greater Ethernet ring resilience at a more affordable cost for small to medium-sized applications. The devices will be on display at ACTUS booth #3329.

"G.8032 delivers 50-ms failure protection and rapid service restoration comparable to SDH/SONET and RPR resilience for carriers at a much more affordable cost by leveraging less expensive Ethernet-based hardware instead of costly synchronous equipment," said Dr. J. Kevin Rhee, CSO at ACTUS Networks and professor at KAIST. "We're very pleased to unveil the first commercially available application of this emerging technology at SUPERCOMM, the world's premiere forum for broadband technologies."

Ganesh 300: Compact and Cost-Effective

ACTUS' Ganesh 300 is a compact and cost-effective CEA platform ideally suited for the aggregation node of wireless backhaul. With just a 1RU-size form factor in a 19" rack mount, the G300 provides PBB-TE, E-LINE/E-LAN, OAM and Circuit Emulation with resilience supported by G.8032 2010 ring protection on the network side. The user side features two User Service Modules (USM) with 1:1 end-to-end service protection to maximize Ethernet reliability and resilience, even under heavy load. Ethernet protection requires much less bandwidth resource than SDH/SONET-type protections for the same level of protection performance. The G300 delivers 28G switching capacity with 4-port GbE and 2-port 10G network aggregation capabilities, with two optional modules for highly integrated TDM-based interface modules.

Ganesh 200: Easy Migration to Ethernet at Lower Cost of Ownership

The G200 CEA platform provides an ideal and affordable migration path from current legacy radio access backhaul networks to Carrier Ethernet Networks with a compact 1RU-size form factor, 16-port E1/T1 and 8-port fast Ethernet interfaces that aggregate to a 1:1 Gigabit network interface. Fully capable of supporting a Packet Transport Network, G200 is ideally suited to provide easy Ethernet migration with outstanding Quality of Service and SLA assurance for Ethernet private line services.

SnycRing Brings G.8032 Technology to Existing CEA Platforms

ACTUS' SyncRing enables equipment manufacturers and carriers to implement the new G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection on their existing CEA products with a complete software and hardware package that includes G.8261 Ethernet clock synchronization technology. Complete with the software source code, documentation and hardware reference design with Broadcom Ethernet switch, SyncRing makes it easy and affordable for companies with existing hardware investments to migrate to the G.8032 standard for greater resilience and rapid service protection without costly synchronous equipment.

"The majority of service providers are beginning to realize the benefits of Ethernet as a carrier-class technology over the more expensive synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) or synchronous optical network (SONET)," Rhee said. "The advent of the G.8032 standard has enabled ACTUS to provide the most reliable Ethernet protection with rapid restoration and high availability at an affordable price, to help maximize carriers' revenue per user even though end-user bandwidth demands grow."

ACTUS Networks' carrier Ethernet access and mobile backhaul solutions enable network operators to reduce operating expenses and capital expenditures while maintaining exceptional quality of service and ensuring SLA adherence through a cost-effective coupling of Ethernet and TDM traffic to accommodate ever-increasing mobile data demands.
