New small form factor platform extends company's Adaptive Optical Services Routing (AOSR) and high-density 10G technologies to new markets, applications and customers

Vello Systems, a leader in next-generation high performance IP+Optical™ networking systems, today announced the introduction and availability of the CX4000 system. The compact high-performance 5-slot CX4000 complements the flagship 17-slot CX16000 enabling 10G and beyond capacity and extending the company's innovative Adaptive Optical Services Routing (AOSR™) technology to a wider-range of carrier and enterprise applications including data center internetworking, triple-play service delivery and mobile backhaul.

The CX4000 is purpose-built to provide highly scalable and flexible bandwidth and services, dramatically improving network response time, and lowering costs. The system is capable of delivering 40G capacities over 10G engineered fiber networks, and excels over long fiber paths, on old and unconditioned fiber and even when multiplexed onto fiber shared with other equipment.

The CX4000 also offers extremely low latency connectivity to maintain high transaction rates in data center connectivity applications as well as to ensure consistent high quality-of-service for broadband and backhaul environments. Its compact size, extremely low power consumption and low heat dissipation conserve vital space, power and HVAC in today's crowded data centers, central offices, and wireless base station locations.

For carriers, the new CX4000 enables deeper penetration of next-generation 10G optical networking technology into access and aggregation networks for immediate capacity relief and is ideally suited for space and power constrained environments. The CX4000 supports a wide-range of TDM and 1GE/10GE service cards to satisfy legacy requirements while enabling significant bandwidth for new packet-based services. For enterprise, the new system coupled with the company’s wide-range of mix-and-match Ethernet and Fiber Channel service cards is an ideal platform for unifying storage, compute and network fabrics over wide-area network connections.

Like the proven CX16000, the CX4000 is powered by the VellOS™ real-time network operating system and based on the company’s Unified Systems Architecture allowing for linecards and components to be shared across the entire CX family. Additionally, like the CX16000, the CX4000 is fully manageable through the company’s WaveMaster™ point-and-click management system enabling fast, simple, and error-free element management and provisioning.

“Carriers and enterprise are turning to next-generation IP+Optical networking systems to help increase capacity, lower latency and reduce costs,” said Karl May, Vello Systems President and CEO. “The new CX4000 delivers these advantages to a host of new applications and customers including cloud computing, financial operations, and life sciences. We’re excited about this new addition to the CX family and the benefits and value it will bring to our customers.”

The CX4000 is generally available now.
