Case Study
Problem
The Swisscom lab had to figure out how to accelerate testing schedules ahead of the Optical Wavelength Network launch and its follow-on updates.
 
Our Solution
Using Glimmerglass Intelligent Optical Systems to configure the optical layer of the test bed has greatly reduced set up times and port cleaning costs. Moreover, the switching fabric is already prepared to configure tests of 40G and 100G equipment.
