Ethos Networks Joins Industry Consortium to Strengthen Connection Oriented Ethernet
Currently Ethernet systems are under enormous pressure as new services such as Video on Demand (VoD), HD broadcasts and social media grow in popularity threatening to congest the delivery networks. Connection oriented technology managed to turn Ethernet's learning behaviour into deterministic & managed behaviour and creates a simple, low OPEX carrier Ethernet technology.
Ethos Networks drives connection oriented technology further adding deterministic end-to-end QoS and dynamic traffic engineering. Ethos allows carriers to maximise existing infrastructure to increase profitability by offering an unlimited range of services and guaranteeing Quality of Service (QoS) to consumers.
"Full service convergence of revenue generating packet applications at a low total cost of ownership is the main business challenge NG services face today." said Dr. Yuval Davidor, CEO of Ethos Networks. "This problem is compounded by the growing number of IP services carriers are looking to deploy. So, the steps taken by the Carrier Ethernet Ecosystem are timely and will help carriers address this challenge effectively.
"Operators will soon have the technology to operate a truly converged service over a simplied transport deploying PBB-TE where one network can have the all the bandwidth it needs to handle all the different services. Carriers will no longer need to compromise on the service mix, utilization, profitability or the number of new services launched."
"Ethos Networks participation with the Carrier Ethernet Ecosystem is a great indicator of the level of innovation being experienced in this market at the present time," said Mike Adams, vice president of strategy and architecture, Metro Ethernet Networks. "We look forward to working with them on comprehensive interoperability testing and demonstrating the power of these new capabilities in real life scenarios."
Ethos Networks recently raised an US$8m in additional funds from its current financiers and a new carrier investor. The company was co-founded by Dr. Yuval Davidor, Mr. Hayim Porat and Mr. Adam Dunsky and allows operators to realise the full potential of the Next Generation Ethernet.
Ethos Networks LTD
Ethos Networks has pioneered connection oriented Ethernet by providing a dramatically enhanced solution for intelligent network traffic engineering. Ethos provides a complete solution including PBB-TE devices and a network management system combining management resource analysis and optimization. Ethos' solution utilizes advanced traffic engineering while employing Ethernet as a single transport technology thus creating a congestion free metro packet network and retaining the advantages of PBB-TE simplicity.
The Ethos platform is the first packet transport system of its type developed from the ground up with a service centric approach. Ethos' carrier-grade transport solution enables the delivery of any network service with strict end-to-end assurances. With Ethos' solution carriers can guarantee end-to-end QoS and offer an unlimited variety of services, enabling the increase of revenues and reduction of the total cost of managing Ethernet networks.
Ethos Networks is a member of the Carrier Ethernet Ecosystem, an industry consortium committed to helping carriers meet the exponential growth in metro area networks.
