MRV Announces 40G Solution for Data Center Media Conversion and Distance Extension Applications

Fiber Driver Module Optimizes Data Centers and Cloud Connectivity Enterprises

CHATSWORTH, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- MRV Communications™, Inc. (OTCQB: MRVC) ("MRV" or the "Company"), a leading provider of optical communications network infrastructure equipment and integration and managed services, today announced the release of a 40Gbps optical interconnect solution. With the proliferation of servers, switches and optical ports within data center, service provider and enterprise facilities generating greater demands for bandwidth between locations, MRV's new 40G Fiber Driver module enables the interconnection of metro facilities for increased bandwidth and to conserve fiber. The new 40G Fiber Driver module allows facilities to increase the connection distance from the industry standard few hundred meters to 10 - 15 kilometers. It also reduces latency and increases processing power to meet the requirements of new cloud-based and data-intensive applications.

Connecting locations across metro areas is increasingly necessary for data centers, service providers and enterprises to share computing, storage and telecommunication resources. In addition, greater distances are required for disaster recovery and backup so critical corporate resources are not subject to loss in a single facility. To better help MRV's customers reach these longer distances and maximize bandwidth, the new 40G Fiber Driver module (EM316-2QSFP-40G) will enable media conversion and distance extension. Whether converting from one short reach 40Gbps multimode connection to a long reach single mode fiber connection or multiplexing four short reach 10Gbps multimode fiber connections to a single mode fiber connection, the new module makes it easy to add or change optics when increasing the data rate and also reduces spare parts inventory requirements with its QSFP pluggable modules.

As with the rest of the Fiber Driver product family, the new 40G module reduces power consumption compared to other industry approaches. With electrical power consumption a critical constraint in today's data center, the EM316-2QSFP-40G module enables increased equipment density in the Fiber Driver chassis and lowers this key cost factor. MRV's complete Fiber Driver solution addresses these key issues and more by improving functionality in density, power efficiency, ease-of-use, flexibility and inventory management and enables service providers, data center collocation companies, internet exchange carriers, web service companies, cloud and content providers and large enterprise data centers to meet today's need for cost-effective metro transport solutions.

The new 40G module also offers enhanced management capabilities. Each channel has built-in pseudo random bit sequence (PRBS) testing capabilities which reduces the need for external test equipment and enables the simultaneous testing of all optical channels. This saves users significant time compared to testing each channel individually. Other powerful management features of the module include digital diagnostics, link integrity notification and loopback management which are available with either the command line interface or through a GUI with MRV's management software.

"The Fiber Driver product line offers the smallest footprint and lowest power consumption of any comparable WDM platform. The addition of the 40Gbps module with its unique management and testing capabilities gives our customers a cost-effective option for very high bandwidth interconnection between facilities," said John Golub, Vice President of Global Product Line Management for MRV. "As a result, our customers will be in a stronger position to handle the continued growth of bandwidth intensive applications that are demanded by businesses around the world."

While we understand Agile as a means to accelerate innovation, manage uncertainty and cope with ambiguity, many are inclined to think that it conflicts with the objectives of traditional engineering projects, such as building a highway, skyscraper or power plant. These are plan-driven and predictive projects that seek to avoid any uncertainty. This type of thinking, however, is short-sighted. Agile approaches are valuable in controlling uncertainty because they constrain the complexity that ste...
Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
"This all sounds great. But it's just not realistic." This is what a group of five senior IT executives told me during a workshop I held not long ago. We were working through an exercise on the organizational characteristics necessary to successfully execute a digital transformation, and the group was doing their ‘readout.' The executives loved everything we discussed and agreed that if such an environment existed, it would make transformation much easier. They just didn't believe it was reali...
The cloud revolution in enterprises has very clearly crossed the phase of proof-of-concepts into a truly mainstream adoption. One of most popular enterprise-wide initiatives currently going on are “cloud migration” programs of some kind or another. Finding business value for these programs is not hard to fathom – they include hyperelasticity in infrastructure consumption, subscription based models, and agility derived from rapid speed of deployment of applications. These factors will continue to...
"Opsani helps the enterprise adopt containers, help them move their infrastructure into this modern world of DevOps, accelerate the delivery of new features into production, and really get them going on the container path," explained Ross Schibler, CEO of Opsani, and Peter Nickolov, CTO of Opsani, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The nature of test environments is inherently temporary—you set up an environment, run through an automated test suite, and then tear down the environment. If you can reduce the cycle time for this process down to hours or minutes, then you may be able to cut your test environment budgets considerably. The impact of cloud adoption on test environments is a valuable advancement in both cost savings and agility. The on-demand model takes advantage of public cloud APIs requiring only payment for t...

Let's do a visualization exercise. Imagine it's December 31, 2018, and you're ringing in the New Year with your friends and family. You think back on everything that you accomplished in the last year: your company's revenue is through the roof thanks to the success of your product, and you were promoted to Lead Developer. 2019 is poised to be an even bigger year for your company because you have the tools and insight to scale as quickly as demand requires. You're a happy human, and it's not just...
Many enterprise and government IT organizations are realizing the benefits of cloud computing by extending IT delivery and management processes across private and public cloud services. But they are often challenged with balancing the need for centralized cloud governance without stifling user-driven innovation. This strategy requires an approach that fundamentally reshapes how IT is delivered today, shifting the focus from infrastructure to services aggregation, and mixing and matching the bes...
identify the sources of event storms and performance anomalies will require automated, real-time root-cause analysis. I think Enterprise Management Associates said it well: “The data and metrics collected at instrumentation points across the application ecosystem are essential to performance monitoring and root cause analysis. However, analytics capable of transforming data and metrics into an application-focused report or dashboards are what separates actual application monitoring from relat...
The benefits of automation are well documented; it increases productivity, cuts cost and minimizes errors. It eliminates repetitive manual tasks, freeing us up to be more innovative. By that logic, surely, we should automate everything possible, right? So, is attempting to automate everything a sensible - even feasible - goal? In a word: no. Consider this your short guide as to what to automate and what not to automate.
DevOps teams have more on their plate than ever. As infrastructure needs grow, so does the time required to ensure that everything's running smoothly. This makes automation crucial - especially in the server and network monitoring world. Server monitoring tools can save teams time by automating server management and providing real-time performance updates. As budgets reset for the New Year, there is no better time to implement a new server monitoring tool (or re-evaluate your current solution)....
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
We just came off of a review of a product that handles both containers and virtual machines in the same interface. Under the covers, implementation of containers defaults to LXC, though recently Docker support was added. When reading online, or searching for information, increasingly we see “Container Management” products listed as competitors to Docker, when in reality things like Rocket, LXC/LXD, and Virtualization are Dockers competitors. After doing some looking around, we have decided tha...
High-velocity engineering teams are applying not only continuous delivery processes, but also lessons in experimentation from established leaders like Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook. These companies have made experimentation a foundation for their release processes, allowing them to try out major feature releases and redesigns within smaller groups before making them broadly available. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Brian Lucas, Senior Staff Engineer at Optimizely, discussed how by using ne...
