New Smart SFP™ Solutions for Network Migration

AMSTERDAM, October 21, 2014 — OE Solutions and AimValley announce two new Smart SFPs, TPoP (Transparent PDH over Packet) and CSoP (Channelized SONET/SDH over Packet). TPoP and CSoP extend the Smart SFP™ Network Migration portfolio, which is a leading solution for plug-and-play TDM to Packet migration.

TPoP Smart SFP™ enables transport of an E1 signal over packet and WDM networks when plugged into a switch or a router. In addition, a channelized STM-1/OC-3 product is introduced: CSoP Smart SFP™. CSoP aggregates up to 63 E1 channels from different service end-points in an SFP form factor.

TPoP and CSoP Smart SFP™ are efficient and cost-effective solutions for network migration. Before the introduction of the TPoP and CSoP Smart SFP™, network operators had to install dedicated circuit emulation cards in their routers or switches, or needed to deploy a dedicated TDM-over-Packet equipment box. TPoP and CSoP, SFP-based Smart Network Migration technology, enable operators to migrate and integrate their TDM based transport network onto a single technology packet network. The solutions can also bring benefits to utility network operators who have many smaller data streams.

“Together with TSoP (Transparent SONET/SDH over Packet) Smart SFP™, our existing solution for clear channel STM-1/OC-3 or STM-4/OC-12 transport, TPoP and CSoP Smart SFP™ extend our Smart SFP™ Network Migration portfolio,” said Theo Muys, CEO of AimValley. “Migrating TDM network to Packet has never been simpler. The only thing our customers need to do is to plug in our Smart SFP into their Ethernet switch.”
