Matisse Networks

Matisse Networks' optical burst switching solution is purpose-built for scaling metropolitan aggregation networks from 10 to 640 Gbps.

Service provider and enterprise network engineers share a common challenge. Explosive growth in bandwidth demand is driving the need to scale Ethernet metro aggregation networks up to 640 gigabits per second (Gbps).

Although Ethernet is clearly the interface of choice for metro aggregation network architectures, scaling beyond 10 Gbps requires adding another layer of infrastructure and overhead into the network to take advantage of dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) technology.

Along with the explosive growth in bandwidth, traffic patterns in the metro are becoming more volatile. Business Ethernet services and peer-to-peer applications are driving any-to-any- connectivity requirements. Traffic spikes created by IPTV, VOD, or self-published video content can occur from multiple sources at any time. Legacy Ethernet over DWDM multi-layer networks lack the flexibility to meet these demands.

Matisse Networks' optical burst switching solution delivers several important advantages compared to Ethernet over DWDM multi-layer networks:

  • Plug-and-play metro optical networks
  • Transparent accommodation of volatile metro traffic patterns
  • Lowest total cost of ownership
