Fujitsu Introduces Communications Integrator Series for Consolidating Disaggregated Networks
Fujitsu Network Communications (News - Alert), Inc. today announced the 1FINITY C200
Communications Integrator Series, allowing up to 36 of Fujitsu's
disaggregated 1FINITY Lambda and Transport blades to appear as a single
network element. This simplifies site management, while maintaining
pay-as-you-grow scalability and reducing operational costs for network
With the C200 Series, multiple 1FINITY blades are integrated into a
single logical node and presented as one IP address to an SDN controller
- all over a single data communications network (DCN) interconnect port.
This consolidation allows for centralized management access to 1FINITY
blades and simplifies complex deployment configurations.
The Rack Manager software of the C200 Series improves operating
efficiency by automating turn-up of 1FINITY blades via zero-touch
provisioning, which facilitates quick deployment of large scale
environments. Scaling brownfield environments is also simplified using
pre-planned provisioning of 1FINITY blades. This automated provisioning
process reduces installation time and expenses by reducing complexity
and human error.
The C200 Series is an open Linux-based switch with interconnect ports
that offer options for 1GbE optical or electrical connections. It is
available in three variations to meet the management and control needs
of different optical network configurations. In typical ROADM (News - Alert)
environments, the C200 unit incorporates multiple virtual main
controller units (vMCU) for control and integration of up to 36 1FINITY
Lambda and Transport blades. For environments that are compliant with
the Open ROADM Multi-Source (News - Alert) Agreement, the C201 and C202 units use a
single, host-based MCU for consolidating up to 23 Lambda blades or up to
35 Transport blades, respectively.
For ease of operation, the 1FINITY C200 Series integrates with Fujitsu
Virtuora&rg; NC and other SDN control platforms with open APIs using YANG
model-based NETCONF, CLI or Web GUI.
"Our 1FINITY C200 Communications Integrator Series increases network
flexibility while reducing complexity," said Christine Podraza, head of
the optical business unit, Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. "As
disaggregated networks grow and evolve with Fujitsu, each 1FINITY blade
addition simply looks like slotting a PIU in a shelf, when using the
C200 Series for consolidation."
Fujitsu's 1FINITY C200 Communications Integrator Series will be on
display in booth #3731 at OFC 2017, March 21 - 23, in the Los Angeles
