MILPITAS, Calif. & NETANYA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Compass-EOS today announced that NTT Communications, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT Corp.), one of the world’s largest providers of telecommunications services, has signed on as a customer. NTT Communications delivers IP-based services in more than 150 nations to more than 10 million customers.
Compass-EOS is providing its next-generation r10004 core-grade modular routers to NTT for use in its high-capacity transpacific network. The Compass-EOS routers are the world’s first direct silicon-to-photonics-based routers.
“We chose Compass-EOS routers to be used at the termination points of our transpacific high-capacity network, providing a vital link between North America and APAC,” said Dorian Kim, Vice President of IP Engineering at NTT Communications. “The high bandwidth and low power consumption, together with the modularity of the Compass-EOS router family fit well with our future vision and plans."
The r10004, the first in a family of new routers unveiled by Compass-EOS on March 12, uses the power of silicon-to-photonics to drive more bandwidth at high port densities. NTT Communications selected the r10004 for the benefits derived from its breakthrough icPhotonics technology − the world’s first commercial chip-to-chip direct silicon-to-photonics implementation. It will be an important element in NTT’s Global Tier 1 IP Backbone.
“We are thrilled to have NTT Communications among the first production users of our r10004 routers,” said Gadi Bahat, CEO of Compass-EOS. “We look forward to working with them on their implementation in building simple, innovative networks that deliver better services to their customers.”
The Compass-EOS r10004 router simplifies the deployment, operation, and scaling of service provider networks. Each r10004 can serve as a modular router building block for the deployment of scale-out routing, enabling software-defined networking (SDN) and other approaches such as network function virtualization (NFV).
Compass-EOS radically changes network routing by shifting it into the age of silicon photonics. The Compass-EOS icPhotonics technology is the world’s first commercial silicon for inter-chip optical interconnect, unleashing the next revolution in routing architectures. Its family of carrier-grade routers is a new breed of scale-out routers, enabling SDN-based, simplified architectures in service provider networks. Since 2006 Compass has attracted top-tier investors ranging from leading venture capital funds to service providers and core routing suppliers. Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
