707 standard, virtual concatenation is equivalent to contiguous concatenation, with the difference that the intermediate transport is done using separate VC-4 channels.
New concatenation techniques enable SDH networks to cope with high-volume data traffic, such as technology that allows contiguous concatenation service, while using existing network infrastructure equipment.
The first-ever successful implementation of an Ethernet over SONET framer supporting High and Low Order Virtual Concatenation on an in-service network is a tremendous accomplishment for Galazar," said Andrew Bjerring, president and CEO of CANARIE Inc.
Galazar's Ethernet over SONET (EoS) framers are the world's first carrier class devices to simultaneously support mixed High Order and Low Order Virtual Concatenation (VC) with Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAS).
These carriers will deploy next-generation SONET equipment with virtual concatenation to meet their near-term transport needs while allowing them to begin offering Ethernet services that efficiently utilize bandwidth," said Anna Reidy, Senior Analyst, Current Analysis.
New features available for the FTB-8100 next-generation test suite include support for Low-Order Virtual Concatenation (LO VCAT) and Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAS) generation and analysis, and differential delay insertion capabilities for both high-order and low-order virtual concatenation.
This validation extends AppIQ StorageAuthority Suite's full range of management capabilities to IBM TotalStorage ESS disk systems, including auto-discovery, path management, reporting, provisioning (volume concatenation, LUN mapping, LUN security), capacity management, performance analysis, and fault monitoring capabilities.
The "PD" Network Emulator from Anue Systems provides delays and impairments on each individual SONET/SDH path imitating the network fault and recovery scenarios that exercise next generation SONET/SDH services such as virtual concatenation (VC), link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS) and generic framing procedure (GFP).
Sycamore's comprehensive Ethernet solutions support the ITU-T standards for the efficient transport of Ethernet traffic over a SONET/SDH infrastructure, including Virtual Concatenation (VCAT), Generic Framing Procedure (GFP), and Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAS).
Flexible next-gen SONET/SDH support - includes ring integration, virtual concatenation (VCAT), link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS), and generic framing procedure (GFP).
Michaux's drawings, a selection of which were recently on view, are the-barest, most unstable concatenations of lines, marks, and doodles, here in color, there pitch black; they are atavistic, inchoate scribblings, at times nearly legible, yet always on the verge of indecipherability.
