GWANGJU, Korea, HELSINKI, Finland and HILVERSUM, The Netherlands, April 11, 2013 – OE Solutions, Creanord and AimValley announce the integration of the Smart SFP™ product into the Creanord EchoVault management system. EchoVault lets carriers bridge the SLA Gap™ by providing a carrier-grade Service and SLA delivery platform that accelerates the managed ethernet access turn-up and automates SLA reporting.

“The combination of our Smart Devices and Creanord’s EchoVault system allows our customers to roll out and manage high-performance Ethernet services quickly. This is a turn-key solution opening new markets for our Smart SFP™” said Dr. Y.K. Park, CEO of OE Solutions.

“We continue at the forefront of SLA management providers by integrating the best in class devices. The Smart SFP™ products are a perfect example. They add SLA measurement features inside an SFP and are available now, in any reach and type you need.” said Antti Pappila, CTO of Creanord.

Smart SFP™ is a family of transceivers with integrated system functions, jointly developed by OE Solutions and AimValley. The product family currently consists of the Smart SFP OAM, the world’s first and smallest OAM capable NID in an MSA compliant SFP form factor, supporting Link OAM IEEE 802.3ah or Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) for end-to-end Service OAM IEEE 802.1ag and Y.1731 Performance Measurement. The TSoP Smart SFP for OC-3/STM-1 or OC-12/STM-4 enables a smooth migration from TDM to Packet networks. The TSoP protocol transports SONET/SDH traffic across packet networks by simply adding a TSoP Smart SFP to any router or packet switch.
