Telescent introduces Large Scale Layer-0 Automation for Next Generation Data Centers

Tuesday, Mar 24, 2015

Telescent announces today commercial availability of its Gen3 Network Topology Manager (NTM) for large scale Layer-0 automation in next generation data centers. A live demonstration highlighting the industry leading capabilities of the NTM will be available at OFC 2015, Los Angeles Convention Center, Booth 1903, March 24-26, 2015. The Telescent display and live demonstration will be in conjunction with Go!Foton, a Telescent partner.

Telescent’s patented all-fiber NTM cross-connect switch utilizes a unique approach to optical patch panel automation by preserving all of the features of a manual patch panel (today’s industry work horse) including its large scalability to 1008 duplex ports, low optical loss (<0.5 dB), single mode and multimode signal handling, latched connections and affordable pricing, all while totally automating the switching process and eliminating human errors common in manual reconfigurations at Layer-0.

“The unique development of Telescent’s proprietary routing algorithms, based on the theory of Knots and Braids, creates a highly scalable product that cleverly combines robotic hardware and sophisticated software,” said Anthony Kewitsch, co-Founder and CEO of Telescent.
