Announced Date: 5/5/2016 Published Date: 5/9/2016

MRV Communications, a provider of advanced network solutions for service providers, data centre operators and enterprises, has announced the launch of the OptiSwitch OS-V Series next generation portfolio of modular and compact, MEF CE 2.0-certified 1 and 10 Gbit/s Carrier Ethernet access devices.

MRV's new OS-V series solution is claimed to offer leading scalability and versatility, together with an advanced architecture, and comprises two platforms - the OS-V8 fixed configuration platform and the OS-V20 modular platform, featuring two expansion slots and designed to support a range of enhanced applications.

The MEF CE 2.0-certified, next generation OptiSwitch OS-V series provides a platform for SDN and NFV applications and is designed to speed time-to-market for new carrier-class, SLA-based services. In addition, the solution enables a software-based migration from 1 to 10 Gigabit Ethernet services, helping to eliminate the need for costly infrastructure upgrades.

MRV's OS-V series platform offers support for a range of applications, including bandwidth-intensive business Ethernet services, 4G/LTE mobile backhaul, on-demand access to cloud-based applications and E-Access service with scalable flow aggregation. To help service providers optimise their bandwidth resources, the OS-V also features advanced traffic management capabilities such as highly scalable, micro-flow monitoring to support SLA-based services.

Additionally, the OS-V series is powered by MRV's field-proven Master-OS Linux-based operating system and integrates with the company's Pro-Vision service orchestration and management software. OS-V devices can be deployed in either as part of a full end-to-end solution, including OS-V Series access devices, OptiSwitch 9000 metro aggregation switches and OptiPacket (OP-X) metro service edge platforms, or as independent network devices within a heterogeneous network.
