MRV OptiSwitch Supports PEG Bandwidth And Rapid Mobile Backhaul Growth

MRV Communications™, Inc. (OTCQB: MRVC) (“MRV” or the “Company”), a leading provider of optical communications network infrastructure equipment and integration and managed services, today announced that PEG Bandwidth (“PEG”), a provider of customized, fiber-based backhaul networks, has selected MRV’s OptiSwitch Carrier Ethernet switching platform to manage a rapid increase in traffic offload and support the delivery of high-capacity Carrier Ethernet services for 3G and 4G LTE networks across the central and eastern United States.

PEG specializes in building high-bandwidth fiber networks connecting cell towers and communities that lack the requisite telecommunications infrastructure to support today’s cellular traffic requirements. Since its founding in 2009, PEG has installed over 1,000 miles of fiber and supports cell towers serving almost four million people between the communities of Dallas, Wichita Falls, Monroe and Shreveport. To support the unrelenting growth in cellular data traffic and popularity of 3G and 4G devices, PEG is on track to double its fiber network’s capacity in 2012.

In order to accommodate the exponential increase in traffic, PEG chose to deploy high-bandwidth Carrier Ethernet, delivered over a resilient fiber network and supported by MRV’s compact and intelligent OptiSwitch platform. The OptiSwitch enables a full suite of Carrier-grade Ethernet services, offers common and multifunctional devices for all scenarios up to 10GE to the cell tower, and simplifies service deployment via auto-provisioning. The platform also simplifies Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) conformance by delivering the most advanced service awareness tools and most useful Ethernet operation, administration and maintenance (“OAM”) support in the industry. MRV’s OptiSwitch is among the first platforms to fully comply with the Metro Ethernet Forum (“MEF”) Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) initiative, meeting multiple Class-of-Service (“CoS”), network interconnect and service OAM capability requirements.

“Carrier Ethernet provides the scalability, redundancy, service creation and management features we require to support our customers’ demands,” said Chris Pickard, vice president of engineering and network architecture at PEG Bandwidth. “The compact yet powerful OptiSwitch enables seamless interoperability and visibility into customer and provider networks, and provides the capability to handle Tier 1 traffic and the reliable foundation needed for PEG to remain confident and focused on building a next-generation network.”
