When combined with GE’s SONET/SDH multiplexers and utility-hardened multilink switches, network engineers can maintain transparent service pipes from 64 kilobits per second to 10 gigabytes per second and beyond from their network edges, without the service-delivery compromises (such as additional latency, inefficient bandwidth usage and network complexity) typically found when protocol conversion is employed. Managed via standards-based simple network management protocol, the combination of the Optelian FLEX Architecture and GE multiplexers improves utility communications with superior traffic segmentation and guaranteed quality of service.“Through the Optelian FLEX Architecture, utilities can grow their networks and maintain critical separation of operational and information technologies, supporting their converged business needs without compromising on network performance. It’s a strong win-win,” said David Weymouth, president and CEO, Optelian. To learn more about GE’s multiplexer solutions, visit http://www.gedigitalenergy.com/communications/Multiplexers.asp.
