Orckit Case Study

  1. 1. THE PREFERRED SUPPLIER OF NETWORKING SOFTWARE. Case Study: Orckit-Corrigent Dual stack IP/MPLS and MPLS-TP for Packet Transport Networks Orckit-Corrigent has been supplying networking infrastructure solutions for metro aggregation networks since 2000. In 2001 the company integrated DC-MPLS from Metaswitch which has kicked off a 10-year partnership resulting in a decade of innovation, growth and success. Orckit-Corrigent has recently built upon their track record of introducing cutting edge technologies to the telecommunication marketplace by being the first telco vendor to implement dual stack IP/MPLS and MPLS-TP technologies on a single packet transport switch. The IP/MPLS and MPLS-TP control plane technologies used in that platform are portable protocol solutions supplied by Metaswitch. About Orckit-Corrigent Dual stack IP/MPLS & MPLS-TP PTN Orckit-Corrigent (Nasdaq: ORCT) facilitates the delivery Metaswitch’s MPLS-TP solution shares a common code of SDH migration, Carrier Ethernet enterprise VPN and base with the DC-MPLS software which has been deployed residential triple play, and mobile backhauling applications by Metaswitch customers for over a decade. The use of a for telecommunication providers worldwide. The company common code base not only reduces development resources, was founded in 1990 and is headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel. cost and risk but also provides an ideal environment for dual stack support and interoperability between the stacks. “Our simultaneous support of IP/MPLS and MPLS-TP, and inherent interoperability between the two domains, offers telecommunication service providers with many short- and long-term benefits. These benefits are clear in the flexibility our customers have to select IP/MPLS or MPLS-TP according to a specific application, region or even LSP,” said Mr. Yossi Barsheshet, Vice President R&Dat Orckit-Corrigent. “The flexible architecture of Metaswitch’s IP/MPLS and MPLS-TP control plane solution gave us a great starting point in delivering these benefits to our customers.” Led by its CM-4000 line of products, Orckit-Corrigent’s “IP/MPLS and MPLS-TP based signaling protocols eliminate Packet Transport Network (PTN) solutions include standard the need to configure all the network elements along the and interoperable IP/MPLS and MPLS-TP switches with a route, and offer end-to-end service provisioning, protection wide set of transport features, enabling advanced packet, and OAM. In addition, network management requirements as well as legacy TDM services, over unified packet such as Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, and transport networks. Security (FCAPS) are also improved within an end-to-end Orckit-Corrigent added MPLS-TP functionality on the CM-4000 IP/MPLS & MPLS-TP environment that operates as a unified series to enable telecommunication service providers a tool to monitor and control the network,” said Mr. Barsheshet. simple and cost effective way to implement a unified PTN. Metaswitch’s MPLS-TP solution offers a fully integrated control A unified platform alleviates the need to introduce new plane with options for manual or automated provisioning, pre- hardware as customers migrate from one technology to the next integrated OAM capabilities and protection/restoration features.© 2011 Metaswitch Networks.
