NEC Corporation of America’s Optical Networking Division Ramps up Activities for 2008


Expectations for Continued Optical Infrastructure Growth has NEC Expanding Business Objectives and Solutions Portfolio

HERNDON, VA. - NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a premier provider of network, IT and identity management solutions, announced today it will continue to introduce new optical networking solutions to deliver revenue-generating value to the carrier community into 2008. This expansion comes as NEC looks to proactively address network infrastructure changes, as Next-Generation Networks (NGN) continue to shift toward IP-based technologies that support fixed and mobile telephony, video broadcasting, and business networks.

Building on the momentum of growth in its optical network systems business, NEC is expanding its Herndon, Virginia campus, and announcing new operator migration solutions and progress in 40G/100G transmission solutions.

Key to NEC’s 2007 success was the introduction of several new solutions:
SpectralWave™ MW0500-series, a Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) service delivery platform for metropolitan access and cable networks. All configurations of the MW-0500-series provide an economical, eco-friendly and easy-to-deploy solution for a wide variety of managed wavelength service delivery needs, including: storage-area networking, fiber channel relief, IP offloading and high-speed optical Ethernet transport.
CX2600/200-Series, new Service Aggregation Switch incorporating added TDM/ATM interfaces, as well as highly reliable maintenance and operation functions, making it ideal for NGN rollout. The new features will enable carriers to carry out a smooth deployment of business data services, aggregate packet and circuit-based infrastructure and migrate their mobile backhaul networks.
Expanded SpectralWave™ 4200-series of reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) technologies to include multi-reach capabilities; yielding new opportunities in 40 G / 100G
NEC’s Tunable Laser suite for the full SpectralWave family, enabling service providers and multiple system operators to maximize savings from their existing SpectralWave assets, while optimizing operational benefits from across their installed optical infrastructure.

From a global optical networking perspective, NEC’s Generation Free Platform (GF-PF) is an integral component to enabling NEC’s NGN service delivery at the core; especially as NEC’s NGN focuses on expanding network infrastructure to include enhanced bandwidth capacity for new applications and services. With NEC’s GF-PF platform, service providers can seamlessly integrate new components to dynamically “right-size” their network for appropriate bandwidth allocation.

Specifically in 2007, NEC’s extensive lineup of NGN infrastructure solutions experienced success in global markets. The SpectralWave 4200 ROADM has seen several hundred deployed as of the end of 2007, and the GPON platform was recently selected for a critical application by an American service provider.

“Over the past few years we have strategically built our optical networking product and solutions suite to best position NEC for future growth in North America,” said Rocky Kler, vice president and general manager, NEC Corporation of America, Optical Network Systems Division. “We are confident that in 2008 we will reach an inflection point, where our breadth of offerings coupled with new optical networking, innovation, including high-speed 40G/100G optical transport, will help drive NEC’s wireless carrier growth objectives.”
