Corrigent builds MPLS, TDM modules for RPR system

Corrigent Systems announced that its CM-100 resilient packet ring (RPR) add-drop multiplexer (ADM) can now directly interwork with a multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) backbone. At the same time, the networking equipment startup unleashed a channelized user interface module for handling TDM traffic in the CM-100.

With MPLS starting to become a mainstay in today's carrier networks, equipment manufacturers are being asked to MPLS-enable their system designs. Answering this call, Corrigent has developed a Gigabit Ethernet hub interface module that supports MPLS functionality. Through this module, carriers can provision services end-to-end, across any MPLS-enabled network.

While MPLS is a new capability being asked for, carriers are still looking to support legacy TDM services. To help out, Corrigent has developed a series of TDM user interface modules for its CM-100 platform. Modules developed include a DS1, E1, DS-3c (transmux) and OC-3ch/STM-1ch devices.

The MPLS module and TDM modules will be on display at this week's Supercomm 2004 show in Chicago.
