Positron Inc. has acquired all the intellectual property and rights to the OnSite Systems S15 fiber-optic access and transport products.

Our customers continue to see significant growth in demand for Ethernet bandwidth while supporting and optimizing their legacy TDM services. Positron, with its OSIRIS and AEX products, is committed to delivering solutions that power our customer's growth and expanded service offerings

In order to expand their fiber optic transmission product line, Positron Inc. announced today that it has acquired all the intellectual property and rights to the OnSite Systems S15 fiber-optic access and transport products.

The S15 is the latest technology development from OnSite, which includes all the capabilities of their previous S10 STM-1 (OC-3) design, evolved to flexibly and cost-effectively deliver fully-featured OC-3/OC-12 and STM-1/STM-4 network elements from a single platform with scalability for higher bandwidths.

"Today's carriers and operators are looking for an integrated family of ultra-compact flexible access and metro transport nodes that provide a unique, simple and economical migration path towards a converged service network," explains Claude Brisson, COO of Positron. "The acquisition of the S15 technology is another exciting step in the rapid expansion of our converged access product portfolio, which provides solutions for wireless backhaul, secure and scalable Ethernet transport networks and multi-service aggregation applications such as quad-play connectivity".

The S15 platform centers around next generation non-blocking switch architecture for SONET/ SDH transport. In addition to supporting traditional TDM services, the S15 offers advanced features for efficient Ethernet service transport such as virtual concatenation (VCAT), link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS) and generic framing procedure (GFP). The platform also incorporates key traffic and performance management capabilities including VLAN tagging, rate limiting and statistical multiplexing with multi-level QoS control.

"Our customers continue to see significant growth in demand for Ethernet bandwidth while supporting and optimizing their legacy TDM services. Positron, with its OSIRIS and AEX products, is committed to delivering solutions that power our customer's growth and expanded service offerings," concludes Mr. Brisson.

About Positron
Established in 1970, Positron Inc., a member of the Metro Ethernet Forum, develops and manufactures a portfolio of fiber optic transmission equipment for applications including Metro Ethernet Networks, Core transport networks, access and edge aggregation, wireless and triple-play backhaul and thin-route access transport. Positron is the original developer of the OSIRIS MSP product sold world-wide, which it re-acquired in January 2008. The Positron portfolio includes the OSIRIS and OSIRIS Compact multi-service platforms (MSP), integrated access solutions for the rapidly expanding synchronous optical network (SONET/SDH) broadband markets and the pseudowire based AEX-50/100 and Ethernet over PDH based AEX-55/110 terminals and aggregators for the edge of access and metro networks. Positron's transport portfolio is easily managed by the VUE graphical element and craft management system, which is based on scalable client-server architecture.
